This was a great experience visiting the Colosseum. Our tour guide was not the best and spent a little too much time on stories of unrelated details while only spending a little time on the major themes. However, he did a great job of explaining the different parts of the Colosseum, the underground, chambers, and the construction and renovations. I highly recommend visiting the Colosseum at night and getting a guided tour!

It was so good to have a better understanding of the history of Rome and see how everything merged together over time. This isn’t only a visit to the Colosseum, they will walk you around the surrounding area and explain how everything falls into place before you go in and see the magnificent structure under the night sky. Flávio, our guide your, was knowledgeable, fun and very approachable making the experience a lot better! Would definitely recommend, specially to avoid the crowds and the heat!

Really cool way to experience the Colosseum. We loved that we were able to beat the heat by going at night and it was amazing to see the Colosseum with so few other people. The only reason for the 4 stars rather than 5 was the long tour/killing time before we could go inside.
