Overview
The Colosseum, a 1st-century amphitheater, is one of Rome’s most recognizable landmarks—and it’s just as incredible inside. Breeze past the entrance lines on this skip-the-line tour, which also covers the heart of ancient Rome. Perfect for first-time visitors, this tour allows you to tick off the Roman Forum—where you also skip the line—and the world-famous gladiatorial arena even in limited time.

What to Expect
Begin your tour with hotel pick-up before heading to Rome’s well-preserved historic center, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Skip the lines outside the Colosseum with VIP admission tickets and step inside to marvel at the ruins of the amphitheater. Wander at your leisure while listening to stories of the ancient gladiators and wild beasts that entertained up to 60,000 spectators at a time with their gory battles. Continue your visit of some of the world’s oldest surviving structures at the Roman Forum, the seat of ancient political power, where you also jump the lines. Your guide explains the gods of the ancient world and the foundations of our Zodiac signs. Learn how the pagan festival of Saturnalia—in honor of the planet Saturn— evolved into Christmas celebrations. Visit the remains of the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, where priestesses kept alive the sacred fire of Vesta. Delve into the mythological origins of Rome before concluding your tour.

We could have not asked for a better experience. Our guide was knowledgeable and professional. We learned and experienced so much more than we would have waiting on long lines and blindly wandering around ourselves.

Hey guys! It was really great to see you again after so many years. This is the best reward a tour guide can have when clients ask for you again after so much time. We did spent a great time together, strolling through monuments and time. Your eagerness for this site was great and I felt really lucky to share my knowledge and love for my city with you. Please, don't wait other 7 years to come back and visit us again. There is still so much to see and I'd be delighted to lead you through all the beauties of the Eternal City. Ciao, ci vediamo, Stefania
