Full description
Discover Rome on a 1.5-hour guided tour of Ancient Rome, with skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum so that you spend more time admiring the sights and less time waiting in line.

Meet your guide at Trajan's Column, by the wedding cake monument to Vittorio Emanuele II. Then, follow in the footsteps of Roman emperors, Renaissance artists and everyday Roman citizens.

Enjoy fast track entry to the vast Colosseum, once able to seat up to 50,000 spectators. Work on the arena began in 72 AD and took 8 years to complete. Imagine the gladiatorial spectacles of the Roman Empire’s most impressive arena.
