Highlight of entire trip, best tour guide (Elizabeta), night-time schedule made for cool, quiet, mysterious feel.
This was the best tour you can take in Rome. It was incredible standing on the well-lit field where gladiators once stood. The illumination of all the colloseum elements was outstanding, and so cool to see where the beasts were kept! I highly recommend it.
Awesome tour and super awesome guide Francesca. No lines, no crowds, and no hot sun! Wouldn't have if any other way. Francesca took time to explain the history and tell stories which made the whms experience so much richer than just walking around by ourselves. Highly recommended!
This was an incredible experience. I personally don't deal well with heat and booked this tour as an option. It was perfect. Seeing the colosseum at night was just stunning, the sunset views and the lighting of the colosseum was amazing. We went to the 730 tour which was perfect timing. Guide very knowledgeable.
Great way to see the collosseum in the cool of night with hardly any other tourists! Not as good for photos but easy enough to get them later. Walking out on the arena you could really get a sense of what it would've been like back in the day. Also loved the other ruins included in the walking tour
This is the only way to see the Colosseum! We traveled to Rome during the peak season expecting and dreading the crowds so we booked this tour hoping for a less crowded experience. When we walked past the Colosseum during the day it was packed with people but when we went later for our tour there were only 2 other tour groups there with about 15 people each so we were able to get plenty of pictures without a bunch of random people in the background. Our tour guide spoke great English and took us on a walk down the main street explaining to us what some other monuments and places were before we made it to the Colosseum where we learned facts and stories you wouldn't hear if you just went on your own.
We were met by our guide on time, I wasn't sure what to expect.
We were all radioed up to hear every word with clarity, our guide was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour and was very happy to be asked questions, which he answered with enthusiasm. The tour of the collesuim at night was fantastic and I would highly recommend doing it with viator, we had a fabulous time, Thank you for a great memory.
Was very nice to go at night; no crowds, great tour leader and very enjoyable.
This tour was one of the highlights of our 4 week holiday. The guide was very informative and passionate about the colosseum. We had lots of fantastic photo opertunities and we didn't feel like we had to rush. I would highly recommend this tour. We were there July 2014.
Seeing the Colosseum at sunset was awesome. Our guide was fantastic - very knowledgable about all of the ruins in the area. We enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.
Easy to meet guide and the headsets and earphones ensured that the guide could be heard at all times. The guide spoke mostly good English but was difficult to understand at times.
The first hour was spent walking around the outside of the Roman Forum and surrounding area before going to the Colosseum itself. Being able to go into it at night was exciting and being able to go down into the chambers (albeit only a very small section of it) was cool. The atmosphere was eerie and having the place almost to ourselves was fantastic.
I also went around the Colosseum during the day time but the night tour was much better but is rather expensive but definitely worth it if you can.
Fantastic tour, crowds are gone and the tour is very informative.
Fantastic tour and our guide was excellent. She works as an archeologist so she was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the Colosseum as well as the Forum. Going in a small group in the evening is the way to go. Definitely recommend!
Perfect tour of roman forum and Colosseum and perfect time. Less crowded and cooler. A must do in Rome.
