    Very good value for money. Well worth getting the tour as you get a great amount of information about the forum, collessium and palatine hill as well as entrance to these sites. The guide, Fred, was lovely and knowledgeable.

Colosseum Underground, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill Tour

The tour starts next to Rome's Via Frangipane. Skipping all the queues, we'll start the tour by visiting the Gladiator Arena, where we'll spend 15 minutes learning all about the games, events and fights took place there for almost five centuries.

From there we'll descend to the underground tiers, the most enigmatic and special part of the Colosseum. For 20 minutes, we'll walk through areas where two millennia ago the gladiators prepared to fight. As we follow the footsteps of these ancient warriors, we'll discover the keys to this section's architecture. There we'll also learn how the elevators that gave access to the Arena worked and other parts that we dare not reveal before the tour.

To finish our guided tour of the Colosseum, you'll be able to explore the different upper tiers of this symbol of the Italian capital, declared a World Heritage Site.

Leaving the Colosseum behind, we'll pass by the Arch of Constantine and go to our next stop, the Roman Forum, one of the most important public spaces of the city in the imperial era. Here, we'll admire the incredible temples and buildings built by emperors such as Marcus Aurelius and Trajan.

We'll finish the route by visiting the Palatine, the hill that houses the archaeological sites of the ancient residences of the Roman emperors. Conveniently, it's also where you get the best views of the city!

Changes to the Itinerary

Due to the high temperatures and until further notice, the visit to the Palatine will be on your own. Everything about the Palatine will be explained to you at the Roman Forum, where the tour will end. From then on, you'll be able to visit the Palatine at your own leisure.

Important

The timetable of the visit may change depending on the availability of the Colosseum. If you do not accept the new timetable and cancel your reservation, you will not receive any refund. The local provider will contact you to find an alternative.
