Unveiling the Colosseum’s Arena Level

Our Semi-private Colosseum tour offers exclusive access to the Arena Floor of Rome’s most iconic symbol. Using the recently opened “Gladiator’s Entrance,” you’ll march under the scenes from above with your semi-private group to channel your inner gladiator.

As our local expert leads the way, they’ll highlight Roman archaeology and dramatic chronicles of the building’s construction – a narrative Hollywood can only emulate.
Once home to gladiatorial games, theatrical executions and even mock sea-battles, this Colosseum tour explores the Arena Floor with its awe-inspiring panorama, up-close views of the underground ‘backstage’ where the spectacles were brought to life.

Step back in time

After the tour of the Colosseum and its Arena Floor, you’ve still only captured a small piece of Rome’s history. Your guide will lead you to the Roman Forum for the next piece of your exploration. This was the center of Ancient Roman society and a visit to the palace will provide you a fascinating understanding of the events that took place there.

Once inside the Roman Forum, you will take a short, up-hill walk to Palatine Hill for an exceptional bird’s-eye look over the Roman Forum and Circus Maximus. Coined “he “First Nucleus of Ancient Rome,” locals say it gives you one of the best and most unique places to appreciate Rome’s beauty. Your guide will be sure to bring to Rome’s founding site to life for you.

The Colosseum might be Rome’s most iconic site, but Rome definitely has so much to offer and all types of things to do. The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill will be the perfect complement to your Colosseum Tour with Arena Floor access, and you’ll visit all three sites without the crowds of visitors that would usually be alongside you, instead our expert tour guide will be right there with you.
