Full description

Discover the Colosseum in the serenity of night with a guided tour. Enjoy access to the main areas of the structure, as well as exclusive access to the underground dungeons and arena floor under the moonlight, where fierce gladiator battles once took place.

Upon arrival at the Colosseum in the evening, meet your guide who will escort you on your exclusive journey. Away from the usual crowds of the day, enjoy the opportunity to admire the Colosseum in a more intimate and engaging way, as you first discover the grandstands. Then, you will enter one of the restrictive areas of the monument, the underground. Discover a network of tunnels where lions, tigers, and other fearsome animals were kept. See the remnants of cages, wooden elevators, and gladiator rooms where combatants awaited their frightful fate in the arena.

Head up to the arena floor through the archway named "The Gate of Death." Hear thrilling stories from your guide under the eerie moonlight. Admire 360-degree views of the amphitheater as you imagine the sight of thousands of screaming spectators as you stand on a reconstruction of the arena floor.

Great tour, however, it would have been much more enjoyable if there were a few minutes between the outside tour and the underground tour that we had with a different person to be able to go to the bathroom. Hard to focus and enjoy it with a full bladder and only wanting the tour to end so you can relieve yourself. Our second guide said that we were on a time schedule to start the underground tour and didn't have time to wait for people to go to the bathroom. Needs to be better timing between the first and second segments to have a few minute break between them. The outside tour was good as well, but could have been shorter. Since you have headsets for hearing, it would be easier if it were the same person doing the whole tour. Had to turn in one set of audio boxes and get another one from the second guide.

It took us a while to file the starting point, but once the tour started, it was another excellent experience. The tour guide, an archaeologist was knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and extremely informative. We have visited the Colosseum several times, but had never taken the underground tour. And seeing it at night made it even better.

The tour is worth the money because you get an uncrowded and nearly private tour (25 people) with great night time views. If you just book a daytime tour, it’s you and thousands of others. Your get a one hour guided tour outside from GetYourGuide, and an hour in the coliseum with their guide.
