Get a gladiator’s eye-view of the Colosseum, then explore the Roman Forum on a 3-hour walking tour of Ancient Rome. With a skip-the-line ticket, you’ll avoid the long entrance lines and access the arena via the Gladiator’s Gate. Stand where gladiators once fought, hear tales of ruthless crowds and emperors, then explore the Colosseum’s first level with your guide. Finish with a tour of Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, with stories that bring the ruins to life.
Make your own way to the Colosseo metro station in Rome to meet your guide at 8:45am. When your group is together, you’ll start your tour at 9am.
Walk over to the Colosseum with your skip-the-line ticket in hand, then bypass the main entrance lines to head straight inside the arena via the Gladiator’s Gate. Transporting you back in millennia, your guide regales you with stories of the gladiators who fought here to their death.
From the arena, you’ll head up to the first floor to see where the bloodthirsty Roman crowds bayed, and gaze out over Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum — your next stop.
Leave the Colosseum, and walk over to the forum as you hear tales of imperial-era Rome. Wander around the main ruins and monuments of the ancient plaza, which was a center of political activity in the city’s heyday.
After three hours exploring Ancient Rome, you’ll finish your tour near the Roman Forum.
