Full details

Step into one of the most exclusive parts of the Colosseum for the eye-opening tour most visitors only dream of.

Our guide to VIP Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

In the company of a local expert guide you'll learn about the bloody glory of the gladiators as you tour the tunnels of the Colosseum Underground. Immerse yourself in the space where men and beasts were kept amidst intricate staging machinery as they awaited their chances at victory or death.

As your small group marvels at how incredible the architecture of the Colosseum remains after nearly 2,000 years, your guide explains the seating plan at the average games - from the emperor's seat to the gentry, peasants and finally, the ladies.

Please Note: Because of the very special access on this tour you are REQUIRED to bring an ID with you. Please don't forget, as this can hold up the tour and may result in you having to miss parts.

After your extended tour of the Colosseum (including general access areas too), you'll head over to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill - once the center of politics and commerce in Rome. Here you'll learn about daily life in antiquity's greatest empire, as well as some of the most dramatic events in its momentous history. From the mansions of emperors to the temples of humble hearth goddesses; businesses, monuments, and governmental buildings will come to life as your guide tells vivid stories of the men and women who created this incredible civilization.

These ruins can be hard to interpret on your own, but with a group of no more than 24 people you'll have intimate access to your guide and plenty of time to ask whatever interests you. There is no more exclusive or entertaining way to step back in time and learn about Ancient Rome.
