Breeze past notoriously long Colosseum entrance queues with a skip-the-line admission ticket that includes VIP access to the underground level and arena. In addition to explaining the meaning of the often unmarked ruins, your guide provides facts, anecdotes, and background often unheard by visitors about the arena’s gory history. Personal headsets ensure you hear every word of the tour no matter where you are in the group.

Skip the queue. This is the way forward. I would like to have seen more of the underground though 😃👍
Colosseum Underground
, Jul 2019
Skipping the line was a big advantage in the July heat. Very knowledgeable guides. We didn't see a lot of the underground, but what we did see was a nice escape from the crowd. Learned a lot of history that we would not have had if we had visited on our own.
Loved seeing the Colosseum and the Forum but our guide...

The first guide for the colosseum was good but the second guide for the forum was too wordy, repeated himself consistently and I felt like I learned nothing. He was also unorganized. Finally the forum tour was too many people and we didn’t get started for an hour because the guide had an expired pass and other poor planning issues.

Found this tour very interesting and could just picture and feel what use to go on in the times with the very good commentary the guide gave . Very informative and obviously she loves her job .
Great Tour and Experience

Santos served as our guide for The Forum. He was very knowledgeable and made the experience memorable. We then did a tour of the Colosseum which included the underground, and private access to the upper levels. Our guide had lots of insight and knowledge as she is an archeologist. Highly recommend this tour!
Best tour!

This was a fantastic tour! We were able to explore the underground, the arena floor and the 2nd tier. Our guide was so knowledgeable, we learned so much. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone! Fantastic!

The underground part of the tour was underwhelming. Not a necessary expense. Pantheon Hill was with a guide not using headphones so we couldn’t hear him at all in the large group. The meeting point was difficult to find. Rushed thru the forum and couldn’t hear what guide was saying because of the large group and no headphones offered
This tour company location is a bit...

This tour company location is a bit tough to find, but once you do, you will be glad that you did. We were with a group of less than 25 people. We did truly skip all the lines. We ended up waiting about 20 minutes for our tour guide to arrive once we reached the meeting point inside the Colosseum. Once the tour started, whoa! We were able to access the stage where only some tour groups could go. But then we went below the stage down where the performers would be until show time. It was awesome. An engineering marvel. Well worth the money.
