Overview
Instead of spending hours in line at the Colosseum, one of Rome’s busiest sights, bypass crowds with this skip-the-line tour that leaves you time to explore the city’s other popular landmarks. Enjoy special, behind-the-scenes access many visitors don’t get to as your guide takes you deep into the dungeons of the Colosseum and onto the arena floor to see where gladiators used to battle. Hear illuminating commentary along the way.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at the tour office in Via del Colosseo, 24. From here, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of some of the most well-preserved parts of the Colosseum and have plenty of time to take photographs while waiting for your tour to start.

Learn how the Romans built such a colossal monument while skipping the long lines to step inside the largest amphitheater ever built. Your guide will recount stories of epic battles between gladiators and wild beasts while giving you behind-the-scenes access to Colosseum sights.

This tour offers exclusive access to the underground areas where you'll explore the tunnels and rooms where gladiators prepared for battle before stepping out onto the arena floor where the mighty gladiators once stood.

Underground tours of Rome’s Colosseum are among the most popular tours in Rome and often fill up, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Great tour!

Was a great tour, even more than I thought we would be doing. Toured down below and then all the way up to the top. Had been to the Colosseum twice before and was only in the area a regular ticket gets you into. This...More

Organized and well worth the price

The tour office was very easy to find. Friendly and helpful. There was total truth in 'skip the line' unlike the tickets for Vatican City. We were taken to an entrance behind the colosseum and did not have to wait long. We were the only...More

Shame about the chaotic ticketing

As a tour, you can't fault the amazing Colloseum and Forum. They are both amazing iconic locations. It's therefore a shame that the tour organisation was chaotic. Our paperwork said to be there 45 mins before our scheduled time, which we did. We were then...More

We learned so much about Rome and the Colosseum

We liked this tour and I think we actually got upgraded. Seeing the lower levels of the Colosseum was fascinating. We saw every floor and the guide gave us quite a bit of detail. After a break we continued the tour with a walk around...More

The tour we booked was just for the Colosseum. We have been on that included the other sights. Lots of options to choose from Idelaig.

Hi Jennifer, the additional tour was free and even offered before the Colosseum tour started (we did not ask for it). By the way, the reponse to my review (from the tour company), is completly untrue. We never went back to... More
