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 between this tour compared to a standard ticket is simple – You get to see much more in this tour. You will visit places that are not accessible to standard ticket holders. Your professional 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 headsets that will help you listen 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. 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 that 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 that will spook you.
