    Get exclusive access to the Colosseum's hidden features

    There's a lot more to the Colosseum than meets the eye. This exclusive tour of its hidden features - the underground and the dungeons - makes that extremely clear. Your English-speaking guide will take you to the lowest depths of the Colosseum's underground area, where you can see the remnants of technological feats such as ingenious pulley and winch systems. These were used to hoist the gladiators and wild animals onto the arena for the battles this amphitheater is famous for. Also, explore the dungeons where the gladiators would wait before being forced into battle at the arena.

    Views to die for on the 2nd floor of the arena

    Once you're done exploring the Colosseum's underground area and dungeon, you can step back up onto the second floor of the arena, with panoramic views that you'll remember for years to come. Your guide will leave you with more fascinating, lesser-known facts about the Colosseum, and your tour will have ended with you being the richer in this attraction's hidden history!

    • For safety and security reasons, no large backpacks or pieces of luggage are allowed inside the Colosseum. No storage facility is available.
