Full description
Join the Colosseum Express tour to make the most of your time in the Eternal City. Take a 2,000-year journey through Ancient Rome in just an hour.

Learn about the construction and use of the world’s largest amphitheater and the underground elevator system. The Colosseum staged many events that kept an audience of senators and citizens entertained from dawn to dusk.

Walk along the vast, open corridors and climb the stone stairs just as the ancient Romans once did. Imagine the bloodthirsty atmosphere as your guide brings to life the spectacular wild animal and gladiator battles that once took place on the arena floor.

Know before you go
For safety reasons and to limit crowding during busy periods, the Colosseum allows only 3,000 people inside at any time. This may cause a slight delay for entry if capacity has been reached, even with pre-booked reservations.

All those who are booked under a reduced price ticket for ages 3-17 will also be required to show ID to prove age.

Please note that this may cause a delay in entry which the guide cannot control but will do their best to manage.
