Overview
The Colosseum’s global renown is evident in the crowds it attracts. Save hours of waiting in line with a skip-the-line admission ticket to the Colosseum, which grants you access to underground chambers usually off limits to the public. In addition to descending to the gladiator chambers on the lower levels on a guided walk, there's time to stroll the ruins of the Roman Forum and absorb sweeping city views from Palatine Hill.

    Colosseum
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your tour starts steps away from the Colosseum, where you’ll meet your guide, a Roman history enthusiast. After an introductory tour of the structure from outside you will proceed to the skip the line privileged access. Once inside, begin below ground to explore the Colosseum’s tunnels, chambers and pits. This section of the Colosseum is restricted to the public and only allows a select number of visitors each day, so enjoy this exclusive chance to see more than most people do. Here you will be able to admire the engineering of the 88 elevators that brought to life Rome's best spectacle. Next you will head to the arena floor. Most visitors are restricted to walk only around the edge, but you have access to walk on the floor itself, standing on the same spot where the battles took place. After the tour of the Colosseum is over you will be left inside to enjoy some free time and really take in the energy of this world wonder. Once outside, if you wish to continue visiting the nearby areas, home of Ancient Rome, on your own, our tickets allow you to access the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum areas, and wander at your own pace.

This tour was highly informative and it was really cool to go into the underground areas. Our guide (Mircea I believe his name was?) was awesome, and really knows his history. Totally worth the time and money!

It started off well. The meeting point was easy enough to find and an extra worker from Crown Tours was at the lower entrance of the station who guided us to the meeting point at the upper entrance. The colosseum tour was guided by a very funny and enthusiastic Italian guide

Totally worth the money- the tour guide was informative and attentive (Madgi or something like this). And I was so thankful when we were able to walk past the enormous line into the coliseum. The tour guide was really great with my kids’ questions, too.

Hi this was a very large group which was ok but for the price we paid (which was close to $185aud pp ) I’d expect to be in a more private group for easier access to viewing areas . Whilst tour guide was very good , I felt we were rushed at each vantage spot due to large crowds
