Guided tours of the Colosseum and the Forum

Hi, we are visiting Rome for the first time for a few days from the 27th March. Would like to surprise my partner with a guided tour of the Colosseum for his birthday. Can anyone recommend a company which provides these tours, preferably with a hotel pick up and drop off?;Much obliged. Anne

It doesn't include hotel pick up or drop off, you can easily take a taxi, but you can book tours through the official website.

Hey, good to know about your trip. There are a lot of tours available as per your requirements. Unfortunately I don’t have any experience with guided tour with hotel pick up and drop so I would suggest you to just take a look at Google search. I also found some results which look quite helpful to me. Take a look here https:/… tripindicator.com/tours/rome/best-colosseum-… or may be this https://www.museumsrome.com/en/guided-tours-… Hoping that you’ll find what you are looking. And yeah, please share your experience here so others can also get some help.

I agree with Donna, take a taxi to the Colosseum. It's 5 Euro p/p for a tour (plus admission).

From the official website - https:/…colosseo-e-shop.cfm :

Individual tickets with scheduled entrance time and guided tour

Explore with our archeologists the history and the characters that used to enliven the arena of the best-known amphitheater of the world and the heroic deeds of the gladiators during the years of the Roman Empire.

Participation fee: € 5,00 + admission ticket to the site

Duration: about 45 minutes

Participants: up to 40

Language: Italian, English, Spanish, French
