Overview

Meet your guide beneath the magnificent Arch of Constantine in the shadow of the Colosseum. This is where our super convenient Colosseum Express tour departs and it's absolutely ideal for travelers wishing to explore ancient Rome after seeing the Vatican Museums earlier in the day. Your guide will explore and explain every aspect of the Flavian amphitheatre in great detail before you will enter the arena through Gladiator's Gate, an arched side-entrance used by none other than gladiators in antiquity. Today, aside from being a thrilling way to enter the Colosseum, it is also a world away from the touristic chaos of the main entrance, forever crowded and a must-not-see experience when in Rome! Once we're through the Gladiator's Gate we arrive in the middle of the original arena floor. This is where gladiators were killed to satiate Roman bloodlust or survived to fight another day. This brutal place in history is now the perfect spot to glance all around at the sheer scale and beauty of the Colosseum. It must have been terrifying in AD 80, but this is something we can reflect on rather than worry about!

Your guide will deliver a brief history of the arena floor and Colosseum interior before leaving you inside to wander aaround t your leisure. There is no waiting and no worry on this 90 minutes fast track tour of restricted access areas inside the Colosseum. It includes priority Colosseum ticket entry and guided tour inside plus easy access into the Roman Forum with an expert local archaeologist guide.

When your walks inside the Colosseum conclude, your guide will lead you straight into the soul of ancient Rome and wander with you through the temples, shrines and basilicas which make the Roman Forum such a mesmeric place. Every building, still standing or ruined in part connects over 2,500 years of history which our local expert archaeologist will bring to life for you! Stay in the Roman Forum for as long as you like until the gates close.
