COVID-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

You will begin this incredible dive into the past upon introduction to your local expert tour guide. High-quality audio systems to hear the guide at all times will be given out, shall you wish to stay slightly back or wander off to take that perfect picture.

Once you are all set the tour begins with fast-track-access to the Colosseum. You will take a completely separate entrance, located away from the general admission and the regular skip-the-line tours. You'll soon enter the restricted area of the Arena Floor through the Gladiator's Gate, the same experience a Roman Gladiator would have had some 2,000 years ago.

At this point the infamous Underground Chambers await you. These rooms were the engine of the Roman spectacles, behind the scenes to the world's greatest show. There in the dark elaborate labyrinth of corridors and narrow pathways, you can find over 80 elevators which were maneuvered by over 300 men. The rising and falling of roaring animals and dead corpses would occupy these tiny shafts, and your guide will bring this wonder of the world to life through expert storytelling and visual aids to enhance your experience.
