Full description

Follow in the footsteps of the gladiators. Visit the Colosseum and delve beneath its surface on our Colosseum Underground Tour. Start at the special entrance to the “backstage” of the Colosseum, then descend into the Underground section where your expert guide will show you its inner workings.

Venture out onto a partial reconstruction of the Arena Floor. From here you can take in the magnitude of the amphitheater from where gladiators faced their foes. Finally, you will walk around the tiers where the spectators watched the show.

The skip-the-line Colosseum Underground and Arena Tour is a perfect way to further experience Rome’s iconic monuments. In a group of 12 or less, explore this incredible monument alongside an expert, English-speaking guide. Audio headsets will be used where appropriate so you won’t miss a thing.

Our guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all the aspects of the coliseum we saw. The underground tour is nice because it’s less crowded than the above ground areas- also much cooler in the hot temperatures.
