  • 3.5-hour Viator VIP with 4-course dinner at the Hotel Forum rooftop restaurant and small-group night Colosseum tour
  • Sip on a glass of prosecco at a glamorous rooftop restaurant while gazing at the ruins of Ancient Rome
  • Take a seat at an intimate private table on the terrace and dine on a 4-course, gourmet meal
  • Tour the Colosseum at night without the daytime crowds, and visit the first tier, arena floor and underground chambers
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 15 people ensures an intimate experience
Your evening starts at the Hotel Forum, where you’ll sip a glass of prosecco while enjoying views from the hotel’s rooftop restaurant. From the terrace, you can gaze out at the ruins of Ancient Rome and spot landmarks like Trajan’s Forum.

Your guide will provide some commentary about Rome’s long history before you sit down at your private table, reserved for your party. Your 4-course meal of fine cuisine starts with an appetizer, followed by the first course (pasta), second course (meat or fish) and dessert. See the Itinerary for a sample menu, which includes Roman dishes such as saltimbocca alla Romana (prosciutto-wrapped veal). In typical Italian fashion, dinner ends with espresso.  

After dinner, exit the restaurant with your guide, and walk through the Roman Forum on your way to the Colosseum, which looks even more imposing than usual under the cover of darkness. Go inside to explore the ancient amphitheater in near emptiness, soaking up the atmosphere of mysterious shadows instead of daytime crowds. You’ll walk around the first tier and the reconstructed floor of the arena, where brutal battles between gladiators and wild animals once took place.  

The highlight of your tour starts as you head underground to see the chambers where animals were kept and where gladiators prepared for their fights. This section of the Colosseum is only open to a limited number of people each day, so enjoy this rare opportunity to stand where very few visitors get to stand during the day, let alone at night.

After returning to ground level, your tour ends outside the Colosseum.
