Full description
Get the full Roman experience when you visit the Colosseum by accessing the Arena Floor using the same entrance the gladiators themselves used on the way to bloody battle. You will stand on the partially reconstructed arena floor where the famous games, animal hunts, and executions occurred inside the Colosseum. You can become the envy of all of the people above you that don’t have the same VIP access, and can only wish they could stand where you are.

Once you learn all of the history and gory stories of the Colosseum from your professional guide, you can then head to the photo studio where you can don the uniform of a gladiator and have your photo taken. Whether you and your party are fans of the legendary fighting heroes or simply desire the lifestyle of the noble Roman citizens, you can select your favorite historic costume and take a photo reenacting some of your favorite stories learned on your tour.

If you would like to make your day complete, you can join one of the optional group tours of the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. You will follow your entertaining guide into the oldest parts of Rome where the Emperors lived, and walk the same streets as the Roman citizens going about their daily activities in the Forum. Walk past and hear stories about the Temple of Julius Caesar, the Arch of Titus and the Temple of Romulus. Your engaging guide will round out your tour by regaling you with tales of the emperors and the noble families of ancient Rome.
