Highlights
  • Enjoy a comprehensive overview of ancient Rome’s most important sites
  • Beat the crowds and save time with skip-the-line Colosseum access
  • A small group tour makes for a relaxing, personal way to explore
  • Included audio headsets mean you won’t miss your guide’s stories
What to Expect
This small-group tour begins at a meeting point just outside of the Colosseum’s entrance. Lines for the UNESCO World Heritage Site are famously long, but skip-the-line access means you save hours otherwise spent waiting. Follow your guide inside, put on audio headsets, and discover this world-famous landmark up close. Hear stories about the gladiators who once fought here, as well as the long history of the Colosseum. Next, the tour continues in the Roman Forum, just adjacent to the Colosseum. Home to a heavy concentration of priceless ruins, the Forum was once the heart of the Roman Empire. See Julius Caesar’s final resting place, the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, and more. The final stop on the tour is Palatine Hill. Climb up to the top for views overlooking the Roman Forum and beyond, and hear the Romulus and Remus myth from your guide. The tour ends back in front of the Roman Forum.

Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • The Colosseum is subject to occasional closures. Please provide us with detailed contact information in case we need to reschedule your tour
  • The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Stroller accessible
  • Travellers should have a moderate physical fitness level
  • This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate
Cancellation Policy
For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
