Colosseum Underground Tour

This is the most sought-after tour in Rome, and not many tickets are sold for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. The difference of this tour compared to a standard ticket is simple – You get to see much more in this tour. You will visit places which are not accessible to standard ticket holders. Your private guide will take you to the depths of the Colosseum, the underground where you will discover what it
was really like for the gladiators and animals, slaves and convicts. You will receive audio systems, and you are welcome to put them on listening to your guide describe live, what really happened two millennia ago.

Your tour begins with a VIP entry which is different from the skip-the line and the general admission entrance. Through the Gladiator’s gate, you will enter the magnificent Arena Floor. Close your eyes and imagine a gladiator making his entry to the deafening sounds of the crowds which could swell up to 80,000 as they chanted, cheered, jeered, and watched the gladiators fight for glory. Now, the tour takes a dark turn as you are drawn into the hypogeum. This dark labyrinth of tunnels and corridors housed gladiators, animals, slaves, and convicts. There were 80 elevated platforms which would rise up to bring the gladiators and animals to the top of the arena as well as bring the dead bodies down to be disposed of! You will be spellbound by the ingenuity of Roman engineering and building techniques. The expert guides will tell you spine-tingling tales which will spook you.

Other sites visited within the Colosseum include:

First Ring of the Colosseum
This gives you a whole perspective of the monument.

Second Ring of the Colosseum
From here, you will have spectacular views of inside the Colosseum and can look over the Roman Forum.

Roman Forum

The Roman Forum will transform you back into time. Ancient government buildings is what this site is most famous for. You will see the Via Sacra, and stroll along it as your guide explains this was the very street for marches and pageantry to mark triumphs where spectators would gather on the streets. Your private tour guide will also point out important temples and churches; what is left of them today. Visit the Temple of Vesta and the Temple of Julius Caesar.

Palatine Hill

Imperial palaces is what Palatine Hill is very famous for, not withstanding, Rome originated here. Excavations have revealed that there is evidence of civilisation as early as 10th Century BC. Palatine House was discovered by archaeologist in 2016 who believe was the birthplace of Augustus – The first Emperor of Rome.

  •   We spent the day walking the city at our own pace. The Colosseum tour was the highlight of our day, our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The meeting place was a little tricky to find but we allowed plenty of time.
