Colosseum and Archaeological Park of Rome Tour

8. Colosseum and Archaeological Park of Rome Tour

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Opened to the public with a solemn inauguration that lasted 100 days, it was used for gladiatorial fights (murena), wild animal hunts (venationes) and, with the arena filled with water, simulated sea battles (naumachiae). Built where there had been an artificial lake of the Nerone’s Domus Aurea, it had a capacity for approximately 73,000 people with a large awning (velarium) which protected the spectators from the sun and the rain.  It’s 2,000 years old, but the Colosseum remains a symbol of the Eternal City. The Palatine, with the development of Rome and the continued embellishment of the Forum, due to its close proximity to the seat of power, became a fashionable place to live and the most exclusive neighborhood where  emperors and patrician families built opulent palaces. The Roman Forum was for centuries the center of Roman public and  economic life, where the most important structures of the ancient city were located.

Our tour was wonderful! Stefano was our guide and he was witty ans knowledgeable. We learned so much from him. We spent a lot of time at all of the attractions and got to ask so many questions. I totally recommend this tour over the generic Colosseum tour where you just only walk the upper levels. we got to walk where the Gladiators walked and learn about the lower underground sections, who was there, how they were built and what is being done to preserve the history. Amazing Tour!

The tour is worth every euro. Highly recommended and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Tip: try to book a tour with the GIGI guide - world-class personality with enormous knowledge and a personable, entertaining manner!

Lucia was our guide and she was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and tried to keep it funny, it was long tour. Worth the price since it was such a unique experience to see the underground of the colesseum.

To be mentioned positively - the upper deck is currently closed & it is heated (pleasant with the currently low temperatures). Windows were very clean so that we could see everything well.

As in other European metropolises, a very meaningful and informative way to get to know a city and to quickly get an overview
