This underground Colosseum and ancient Rome tour provides a great way for first-time visitors to orient themselves. Skip the line as you explore the Colosseum’s arena and maze of subterranean chambers only open to a limited number of visitors each day. You’ll also see other top attractions, including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, and your small group size means plenty of time for questions.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at a designated spot in central Rome and head straight to the Colosseum, where you’ll bypass long lines with your skip-the-line ticket. Navigate a maze of chambers beneath the Colosseum and learn about their macabre function.

Then, you'll ascend to the arena level to see where battles between fierce animals and gladiators were fought, stepping over original flooring and peering between gaps.

After exploring the arena, you’ll tick off Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum on a walking tour. Your tour concludes at the Roman Forum, where you’re free to stay and continue exploring independently.

Fantastic tour!

This review is for our amazing tour guide Davide Falasca! He was very knowledgeable, sense of humor, and patient. The tour itself was one of the best ones we have ever been on! The extra cost for the underground VIP tour was totally worth it!...More

Tour is worth it

Had an excellent tour with Davide of the Colosseum. Highly recommend going for the underground tour--not only do you skip the line, but the undercarriage of the Colosseum is fascinating. Davide did a great job explaining everything, including the random questions we asked. Fantastic!

Davide was simply fantastic. It happened to be Republic Day when we visited, which shut down the whole Colosseum area. Davide and his co-worked ensured we'd still get our visit and got us in before the majority of people. We had almost the whole Forum...More

Great tour. Value for money

We did the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill tour with LivItaly. I can't recommend them highly enough. From the detailed instructions sent when we booked, their great language skills (we did an english tour) to our fantastic guide Giulia, this company excelled. I say...More
