Colosseum Tours

See the best of Ancient Rome and learn about the 3000 year history of the Eternal City. In the company of a guide who is an expert in history and archaeology, you will visit sights such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill. This tour begins with a visit to the most famous monument of Ancient Rome – the Colosseum. You will be taken inside, skipping the long lines. Your guide will explain the history of the arena and the events that took place there, while you stand on the same spot as emperors, gladiators and the Roman mobs.

Next stop is the Palatine Hill, where you will learn is connected to the founding of Rome almost 3000 years ago. Later, it would become the home to the nobility of the Roman Republic before becoming the site on which the palaces of the Roman Emperors would all be built. The ruins of these eras can still be seen today, as the archaelogical gods continue to make new and exciting discoveries even to this day.

From here, your guide will take you through the Roman Forum, which was the center of politics as well as public life in Ancient Rome. Your guide will explain in detail how Romans spent their daily lives coming and going from the Forum, and will point out the areas in which notable historical events took place – including Julius Caesar’s funeral, when Marc Antony delivered his famous eulogy.

Note

  • Why book a private tour?
    Do you have a wheelchair, or child stroller? No problem for us on a private tour, as we do not have to consider other people as would be the case on a group tour, but do please advise us of this in the comments section when making your booking, as the guide does need to plan to use elevators and the best route for you.
    If any member of your party has walking difficulties, again it is no problem. We do not have to include the Palatine Hill on the tour if it is too strenuous for any member of your party, and more time can be spent instead in the Roman Forum.
  • Optional Upgrade: The Colosseum Underground - pending availability - is an amazing addition to your private tour. There is very limited availability for private tours to the underground, so do book as early as possible if requesting this addition to your tour. The tour can only be booked for 1pm if you wish to add the Colosseum Undergroud.
