    Being one of the most visited monuments in the world, there is a regularly long ticket line at the Colosseum. By joining our PRIVATE Colosseum Arena Tour in Rome you will be provided with 'skip the line' entrance tickets, so you group can head straight inside and not waste time standing around in ticket lines.  

    As you walk inside the Colosseum, you will begin to feel the magnitude of where you are. This tour gives you access also to the Colosseum arena with a beautiful view over the underground level. Exploring the ground floor level and up to the second tier, your guide will recreate the past, with stories of epic battles, painting pictures in your mind, bringing to life the walls that surround you.

    You will learn about the types of games and ferocious battles that the Romans enjoyed.  Along with providing you with expert knowledge, your guide will also point out the best places to capture that perfect picture during your tour, as you tour the circumference of the Colosseum. Total tour time is approximately 1.5 hours.
