Choose a start time to suit your schedule, then meet your guide near the Colosseo metro stop. Together, you’ll pass the long lines outside the ancient stadium and enter via the special Gladiator Gate.
Step straight out into the arena, just as the gladiators did millennia ago, and gaze up at the ancient tiers where thousands of Romans gathered to watch the gory games. As you listen to stories of the battles, you’ll walk from the arena floor to the spot where the emperors’ box once stood, and then up to the second level to see the stadium from a spectator’s view.
Opt to stay behind and explore the Colosseum more at your own pace or follow your guide to the nearby Roman Forum. Skip-the-line entry to the forum is included, and you’ll get the lowdown on its key ruins plus a stroll up Palatine Hill.
