Colosseum Tour With Special Access To The 4th and 5th Levels, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill - Tour Description

Explore more of the Colosseum than has even been possible, on our Colosseum Belvedere Tour. Enjoy our skip the line access as we take you to areas of this architectural masterpiece that were closed to the general public for decades. With special access to the Colosseum Fourth and Fifth Ring, you can admire the arena from a height of over 40 metres. With a 360° view you’ll get to appreciate the monument in all its glory and get that perfect vacation picture.

Our extended Colosseum tour also takes you to the third-tier level of the Colosseum, not visited on most Colosseum tours. Of course, we’ll also visit all the general access areas that we go to on our regular Colosseum tours, giving you a well-rounded view of this ancient structure.

After the Colosseum we’ll head onward to the Roman Forum and the “Via Sacra” or “Sacred Way” which is the main path through the Forum that once sparkled with festivals and triumphant processions. Your guide will take you to the temple that houses the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated, to moneylenders’ shops and to the home of the famous Vestal Virgins, bringing these magnificent ruins to life.

You’ll finish our tour at the beginning, the Palatine Hill, where legend has it Remus and Romulus fought for the right to build their own city. Explore some of Rome’s oldest ruins, once decadent palaces, and the incredible Farnese gardens. Here you’ll get some of the most beautiful views in the whole city. 

Using headsets will make it easier to hear and interact with you guide, who will be there to cater to your group’s needs and interests, making this tour our most special way to experience the wonders of Ancient Rome.

On this tour, some of the venues or parts of the venue may be subject to last-minute, unpredictable closures. When this occurs, we are happy to offer customers an extended tour in keeping with the advertised total length of the tour.
