Brilliant give access to parts of the Colosseum not normaly open to the general public. Allows you to view the building in a small quiet group. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, amazing to step on the grounds where so many were entertained and some lost their lives. So much history here. We bought the pass the lines, early entry and went down below where the animals and slaves were kept. It is ruins but if you use your imagination you will appreciate the history. wonderful time in Roma

Oh boy! This was fantastic. before we headed into the Colosseum we did an extensive walking tour of the Roman Forum. Our guide was brilliant. Talked us through all the inmportant locations and really brought the forum to life and helped us visualise what a day would look and feel like. Stepping inside the Colosseum was an experieince I'll never forget. Going below the arena floor to where the animals and slaves were held was fantastic. A must do in Rome
Rosie was an incredibly informative guide, and because it was Christmas week the museums were very crowded. No matter where we were able to make our stop to talk as a group, in any random spot, Rosie had vital information to share about any piece of art.
The tour guide was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and interesting.
Well worth the money
We had an amazing tour!! Our guide talked us through the history of the area and shared with us her love for Rome what what made it the city it is today. The underground tour at the Colosseum was handed off to an archeologist who was equally as amazing, her love for the history that was at our very feet and hands reach was palatable. She painted verbal pictures of what took place in the underground chamber and who had access to each level of the colosseum.
I would highly recommend both Viator and this excursion. Simply amazing and worth the price!
This was an excellent tour of the Colosseum. We've done Colosseum tours before, but now they have opened the underground area making it better. The guide was great. Always more to see and learn. I recommend it if you haven't been in a few years.
If you are going to see the Colosseum go on this tour it covers everything from top to bottom. literally. Fantastic informative guides, told me so much I can't remember it all but it was very entertaining too, not boring. It was so hot that I was very grateful we skipped the lines and went straight in once inside it was cool and pleasant, tour was very well organised and I enjoyed it a lot would definitely do it again.
Excellent tour which we thoroughly enjoyed! We were privileged to be accompanied by an archaeologist, Elizabeth who was our guide on the tour. Huge thanks to Elizabeth who was so professional, courteous and informative and made the tour so special.
The tour of the Colosseum, the Forum and Palatine Hill was fantastic. Paulo was a great guide who was extremely knowledgeable and his stories of the areas really brought them to life. The only minor downside was the ice that was on the arena floor of the Colosseum which caused the Colosseum staff to close off access to the floor, but that allowed us more time in the underground chambers which are amazing to see.
Would recommend this tour and Paulo to anybody wanting to explore Old Rome.
Very well organised with enthusiastic and knowledgable guides. I was pleased I took this option with the underground chambers and upper tier.
This was the highlight of my trip. Simply magnificent! When you first walk out on the ground floor of the Coliseum and look up into the surrounding stands you can almost hear the crowd cheering. The guide was average but it didn't matter. There is an elevator to help those without much energy like myself.
The instructions on where to meet our guide were excellent. Our access to the restricted parts of the Colosseum was wonderful. But most outstanding was our guide Fabrizio. He was brilliant in his ability to describe what life was like and help us picture what the ruins looked like during their time. He conveyed an ideal amount of information and tips during the tour. He even gave a great recommendation for lunch afterwards!
Fabrizio was an excellent guide. Would recommend his tour again.
Our guides were passonate about the Colosseum and the history of Ancient Rome. We had a small group which made the tour more intimate, informative and rewarding.
Francesca was a treat! She has a great personality and is full of knowledge. She kept us moving and filled us in on stories the whole time, adding her own little jokes. We loved her excitement about the history of Rome. Halfway through we encountered a long line and she knew exactly how to get around it. I don't know how she did it, but we didnt have to wait in a line anywhere. Very enjoyable tour.
Amazing tour and well worth the money. We loved seeing the underground area and our tour guide was fantastic
Our tour guide was absolutely amazing! We would recommend this tour to anyone and highly encourage the behind the scenes tour because it really is a once in a lifetime experience.
I was tossing up between doing this tour as it had a tour of the underground chambers and upper tier and just a general arena tour. So glad i choose this option. Given the crowds, it was great to see the 'closed' areas and have some space for photos etc and gain some further information. The tour guide was also very informative and was able to give me further tips for my stay in Rome and directions after the conclusion of the tour.
We started on time and had two amazing guides. The guides were highly informative and we had a great conversation going all through the tour. Thank you Bosco and Kiara for making this a great memorable experience for us!
Excellent tour! Very glad we paid a bit extra and got to go down in to the Underground Chambers and also to the Upper Tier. We would definitely use Viator again!
