What to expect

Retrace the glorious past of Ancient Rome by visiting the monumental Colosseum and stepping into its arena during this private tour with a local expert guide. You’ll get to relive a piece of an empire’s history and culture at the largest amphitheatre in the world while listening to stories and legends of gladiator fights as described by your guide, who can cater the tour based on your interests.

Entering the reconstructed arena floor through the 'Death Gate', you'll travel back in time and envision an authentic gladiator experience. Your guide will be happy to tell you plenty of curiosities about the Colosseum's history, anecdotes about the most important gladiators, and myths surrounding the renowned amphitheater. One of our local guides, Antonio, says ‘Imagine the roar of the crowds as combatants were poised to battle and the thrill of fighting for your life in front of 50,000 people.’

Your tour will begin in the archaeological area, where you'll have the chance to see and take photos of important sites such as the Arch of Constantine, built to commemorate ten years of the emperor's reign, Palatine Hill, the most ancient part of the city, and, of course, the Colosseum. ‘It’s quite easy to see why Rome’s Colosseum is considered one of the new seven wonders of the world,’ comments Antonio.
