Full description
With this special access ticket you will skip the long entrance lines to access the monument through the Gladiator’s Gate. You will be walking in the footsteps of the gladiators as they entered onto the arena floor ready for battle.

You will have special access to the partially reconstructed arena floor so you can view the monument from the most amazing vantage point. As you stand on the floor you can look up at the ruins and imagine the thunderous roars of the crowds as the gladiators waited to meet their fate. From the Arena Floor you can also have a close up view of the underground chambers which housed the various wild animals which were brought up for battle.

Walk the ancient corridors and climb the original marble steps as you explore what is left of this magnificent monument. You will also have access to the second tier of the monument so you can imagine what it was like to be part of that roaring crowd looking down on the battles below. Spend as long as you wish exploring the rest of the monument, including having beautiful panoramic views towards the Forum and Palatine Hill.
