Colosseum Arena Tour

Explore the Colosseum with exclusive access through the Gladiator’s gate during this tour. Skip the hassle of waiting in line and walk straight out onto the arena floor where gladiators once fought. Learn about the history of this iconic landmark from a local guide as you move through the interior. After the tour, enjoy free time to see the Colosseum at your own pace.

What to Expect
Your tour begin at the meetingpoint Via della Polveriera 8, nearby the Colosseum.
We take you in using the special access which in the past 
was used by the Gladiators! Our professional tourguide will take you directly to the Arena Floor via the Gladiator Gate, the side entrance once used by Gladiators, this area is not opened to the general public. Once inside, your guide 
will take you directly into the Colosseum Arena Floor. A wooden reconstruction above the Colosseum Underground, the arena floor offers the best vantage points, it’s also a more peaceful place to contemplate your first view of the interior.
