Additional to our regular Colosseum and Roman Forum Tour, the Colosseum Vip Tour includes unprecedented access to both the third tier of the structure and the underground dungeons.
Once inside the amphitheatre, one can imagine the 40,000 gladiators fighting beast and man to appease the crowds. Under the stage houses the cages for slaves and animals used in the spectaculars including a complex pulley elevator capable of lifting animals such as tigers and crocodiles! From the stands of the Colosseum, try to imagine yourself as one of the 70,000 spectators looking past the battles out into Rome centre.
On the Colosseum Vip Tour expect to pass by the towering Arch of Constantine and enter into the Roman Forum. Here, squint your eyes and imagine a busy city centre dotted by stately columns and lit up by its marble facades. Think of the emperors, warriors, and philosophers that strode through the Forum living in what now fills our history books.
The Forum will lead you up Palatine Hill, one of the largest in Rome, giving you an incredible view of the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the chariot racing arena known as Circo Massimo, and countless other sites that you had previously only seen in pictures!
Book the Colosseum Vip Tour and tell your envious friends about your day exploring one of the most recognizable structures in the world and walking through the Roman Emperor’s court!
