Tour Description

Explore the underground dungeons of the Colosseum and get an in-depth experience of the monument with a licensed, professional tour guide. Walk through the Roman Forum and up into the Palatine Hill while learning about everyday life of the ancient Romans.

As you walk beneath the center stage of the Colosseum, your guide will explain the sophisticated elevator/trap door system used to send wild animals into the gladiator battles. You will see where these wild beasts were kept as well as the water source that could have been used to recreate naval battles. With your fun and friendly guide leading the way, you will explore the rest of the Colosseum before making your way to the Ancient City.

The Roman Forum, Rome’s ancient city center, is overflowing with ancient architecture and the Palatine Hill is home to what remains of the imperial palaces. You will be completely surrounded by Rome’s incredible scenery as your guide brings the history to life!
