Tour of Colosseum only with Arena Entrance

Tour Description

By selecting this Express Tour of the Colosseum with Arena entrance you will join a small group of maximum 20 people. Led by a licensed English speaking guide, you will enter the Colosseum through a special reserved entrance once used by the gladiators themselves!

The meeting place is at our office, located just few minutes away from the Colosseum. Here, get to know the rest of your small friendly group (max 20 participants, average of 16) and be introduced to your passionate, entertaining guide!

We are sure you will enjoy their company and this way your tour will be even more interactive. Your English-speaking guide is fully licensed and an expert in Ancient Roman history as well as archaeology. As you leave our office and make your way to the Colosseum, know you are in great hands. Walk straight past the long line, thanks to our pre purchased skip the line tickets, head to a special reserved access of the Colosseum.

Prepare to make your triumphal entrance just as the Gladiators used to do more than 2000 years ago. Step out directly onto the Colosseum’s central stage! What better place than the Arena itself to hear your guide’s exciting tales of the combats and spectacles that once took place in the Colosseum!

The remainder of your 1.5  hour tour will be spent visiting the first and second level of the Colosseum, whilst your guide continues to fascinate you with the vivid history and life in Ancient Rome. Leave shyness aside and ask to your guide as many questions as come to mind. Our guide is completely at your disposal!

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about the Colosseum and experience this must-see site as never before!

Please note that if you have limited time in Rome, its worth it to partecipate to a Colosseum Tour while here, even if you have short time so this is why we thought of arranging an express tour for you. The pearl of this tour is definitely the Arena floor with access through the Gladiators’ entrance.

Meet your guide at our office located on Via Frangipane 30, just 2 minutes away from the entry of the Colosseum. In order to reach our office by public transport you need to take the Metro line B (the blu one) and get off at Colosseum station. You need to exit from the ground floor, having the Metro station on your back and the Colosseum in front of you. Turn right and walk for about 3 minutes along Via dei Fori Imperiali. Just before the Information Point with the big “i” sign on the wall above the entrance, on your right end side, you will see a little arch. Pass through the arch, walk alongside the little alley and you will find our office at the end of it, crossing the street. You can also get there by taxi, asking to be dropped off to Via Frangipane 30. Please be aware that on public transports, you might find pickpockets.
