Overview
The droves of visitors the Colosseum attracts are testament to its status as a Rome icon, but you can enhance your experience on a skip-the-line tour that not only allows you to bypass most of the waiting, but also includes visits to typically off-limits areas. Explore the underground gladiator chambers, and hear tales of the contests from a guide. Plus, tick off the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill on a walking tour.

Highlights
  • Gain full access to Rome’s Colosseum, including areas typically off-limits
  • Avoid waits of up to three hours with a skip-the-line ticket
  • Explore the underground gladiator and animal chambers
  • Enjoy the view from the 3rd tier (when option is selected)
What to Expect
After booking your desired departure time, meet your guide outside the Colosseum and bypass long ticket lines often in excess of two hours. Once inside, you'll explore the Colosseum’s subterranean chambers and pits. These are typically off-limits and only accessible to a select number of visitors daily, so this tour lets you view more than most people get to see. As you explore, hear about the gladiators and wild animals that waited here before fights. While most visitors are only allowed around the perimeter, you will stand on the remaining floor, where you can see the underground chambers. Afterward, walk to the nearby Roman Forum, once the city’s political hub. Enjoy views of the ruins before climbing Palatine Hill, the residential area of ancient Rome’s elites, and gaze down at the Circus Maximus chariot circuit. Your tour concludes on the Via Sacra, ancient Rome’s principal thoroughfare. Please note: The order of sites visited may be reversed during your tour.
