Our guide to Private Colosseum Tour with Arena Floor and Roman Forum

Meet your guide to enter inside the world most ancient, best preserved, and most photographed Arena. Our expert history guide will give you an introduction to the History of the Colosseum, the reason why it was built, the story of the famous “Roman Games” to celebrate victories over enemies, overseas conquers and the grandeur of the emperors, or simply keeping people’s minds busy during famines and hash times and will share stories of fights and famous fighters.

Discover the legends of the Gladiators as you visit the tribunes and imagine to be an excited spectator or an Emperor while watching wild beasts or slave-turned heroes fighting, deciding whether or not your winning bet had to “finalise” the defeat rival or let him die, just upon your thumb command.. up or down for life or death. After the classic visit inside the Colosseum, it will be time to take an authentic insider’s view of its majestic architecture following your small group tour guide along the tiers, learn about the animals and gladiators.

Get to know the details of its enthralling brutal history: what mainly excited the crowds were the fights between gladiators, frequently slaves, criminals or prisoners of war fighting for rich prizes or their freedom. Then enjoy a beautiful walk into the Roman Forum, the arch of Titus, the temple of Saturn, Vespasian and Antoninus Pius are just some of the highlights.. an immense display of evocative ruins which used to be the social, political and commercial hub of the Roman empire and as you wonder through this impressive district of temples, basilicas and vibrant public spaces, immerse yourselves in the 2000 ago daily life and customs life of the biggest, powerful emperor of all times, learning the history of its fast rise and faster fall.

Our tour will end with a climb up to the – according to legend – founding spot of Rome, the Palatine hill where Romulus decided to build his Palace (a word coming from Palatine, in fact).
