Full description

Begin the tour at the meeting point. There, you can take some beautiful wide-angle and panoramic photos of the Colosseum and the surrounding areas before the tour begins.

Being one of the most visited monuments in the world, there will be a regularly long ticket line at the Colosseum. You will be provided with skip-the-line entrance tickets, so the group can head straight inside and not waste time standing around in the ticket lines.   As you walk inside the Colosseum, you will begin to feel the magnitude of where you are. Exploring the ground floor level and up to the second tier, your guide will recreate the past, with stories of epic battles, painting pictures in your mind and bringing to life the walls that surround you. Learn about the types of games and ferocious battles that the Romans enjoyed the most. See where the emperor would be perched, high above the arena floor, ready to decide the fate of another gladiator as he stood before a roaring Roman crowd.

Along with providing you with expert knowledge, your guide will also point out the best places to capture that perfect picture during your tour, as you tour the circumference of the Colosseum.
