Rome's Colosseum is one of the world's best known sites from antiquity, and for something built in 80 AD, it's holding up very well. It was here that the Roman emperors liked to watch gladiators stage to-the-death battles and also hunt and kill wild ...

To be able to see all the areas that I have only previously seen on TV was brilliant. The information from the Guide was very informative, I could have listened to her all day talk about the Forum and the Colosseum.

After a few teething issues with Audio units ,this was an excellent way to see the colosseum. Our guide brought the colosseum to life with her knowledge and stories of what happened there.

Wow! What a great opportunity this tour offers - the chance to walk on the main floor of and explore the underground chambers and upper tier is not one to be missed. We had a great guide who showed us so many details we would otherwise have missed seeing. Cannot recommend highly enough if you are planning a visit to the Colosseum.

This is definitely a must do tour. Valentina was very knowledgeable and lovely. We found the whole area very interesting and hung on to her every word : We were met on time at an easy location, just across from the colosseum.

Recently did the Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome Small-Group Tour with LivItaly, and had an amazing time. Our guide was Luca, he was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything in the most interesting way. The book he had with the illustrations of how the buildings would have looked in ancient times was really helpful in trying to imagine how these buildings used to be. When they say small groups, they mean it, our group was five people they don't do groups of more than six. We were also meet by Rachel she took the other small group, who was also very friendly and enthusiastic. If you are going to Rome, this is definitely the way to see the Colosseum, you get access to the lower level and the upper level, which are not accessible usually to the public, so you more or less get these areas to yourself! Awesome to see the Colosseum from the different perspectives.

Our tour guide, Saraphina sp? was very knowledgeable and helped to bring the Colosseum to life. We loved the ability to skip the lines, go down to the dungeons privately with our mall group and get up into the top tier of the Colosseum. Really enjoyed it.

The tour was excellent. The guide was well informed and spoke English very well. Highly recommend this tour. Unfortunately, my wife became very exhausted and we had to leave the tour when we got to the Forum. No fault of the tour. Lots of walking and lots of step in the Colosseum.

Thought the tour was very well structured and very informative - in particular our guide on the day was excellent. She really knew her stuff and made the whole experience very enjoyable. She went out of her way to eliminate the wait in line to enter the Colosseum and I really appreciated that as would have taken a long time to get in. Only recommendation is to speak with Colosseum to see if you can arrange to skip the line everytime as not ideal having to rely on chance

The tour was great, definitely worth the upgrade to be able to go out onto the colosseum floor, under the stage and higher up on the third level. Our guide Fabricio was AMAZING and made what would have been a great tour wonderful. He was knowledgeable, fun, and willing to take the time to explain everything.
We were in Europe for 15 days and this was the highlight our our trip--and we did a lot. We keep talking about the tour and how much we learned. When the tour ended we were sad it was over!!

Our guide Fabricio with City Wonders was AMAZING and made what would have been a great tour totally awesome and wonderful.

Great tour - absolutely worth the extra money to do the underground upgrade, which also allowed us access to the very top of the colosseum with the most fabulous panoramic views of ancient Rome. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, spoke very good English, and was extremely friendly. Would highly recommend.
