I had a horrible experience of the City Wonders Tour I booked for my wife and I at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Infact, we had to pay twice for another tour company to eventually get on this tour. With City Wonders, we...More
Your tour begins near Oppian Hill, from which you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. On arrival at the world wonder, you’ll avoid long lines with your fast-track pass and head straight inside the Colosseum.
Travel back 2,000 years as your guide tells stories of gladiator battles, bloody animal fights, and executions in front of 50,000-strong crowds of spectators.
If you’ve opted to upgrade your experience, you’ll then visit the arena floor and subterranean chambers, which are usually closed to the general public. Visit cells in which criminals and wild animals were kept, and follow in the footsteps of Roman gladiators in the arena.
After ample time at the ancient landmark, you’ll continue to the Roman Forum via Via Sacra. The sprawling site has minimal signage, but your guide takes you to the highlights and gives you the inside scoop.

Wow. The guide was excellent. Knew her history, linking the sights with events. It is breathtaking to see. It is a walking tour of 3 hrs with steps. So you need to have some fitness. Some older people struggled. Excellent value
