A los niños les gusta bastante la realidad vitual. No resulta facil localizar al guia, en meio de los tumultos de turistas, porque la bandera negra que se supone que porta, es un trapo pequeño que hay que buscar con mucho esfuerzo. La guia , muy amable, resolvió amablemente los problemas que surgieron debido al mal tiempo

The virtual experience is very bad, I couldn't imagine that it would only be virtual glasses, outside the coliseum, in the sun, with nowhere to sit, we had to stand on a crutch.... it's not worth it. Bad value for money.

The meeting place was not quite respected, she was waiting for us in front of the colisee and not in front of the Constantino arch, the flag was black but did not have Virtual reality on it, the installation of the helmets lasted more than 30mn, it relieved us, in short it does not break three legs to a duck.

Due to glasses not being available or working we had to wait longer. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, a great way of seeing how the colosseum used to look. We were a group, ages from 12 to 74 and everyone enjoyed this tour.

Ticket easy to find and guides polite and explanatory , the actual virtual reality is a bit childish and not very thorough ... apart from that a nice experience ... for this price it should have included an audio guide for the actual visit inside ...

Pulse of ancient Rome

Your journey begins at the Colosseum, an iconic symbol of Rome's imperial past. With your host leading the way, you'll bypass the long entry lines and step straight into the ancient theater. Experience the thrill of the battles gladiators once fought, as you explore the first and second tiers of the amphitheater, delving into details of the caste distinctions and seating arrangements. Visit the museum for more historical insights. From there, you'll proceed to the Roman Forum where you can wander among the ruins of once-thriving temples, markets, and government buildings. Finally, climb the Palatine Hill, the legendary birthplace of Rome, and enjoy panoramic views of the city below. This immersive tour includes ample time for you to explore these historical sites at your own pace.

Customize your adventure

Choose from a variety of ticket options to enhance your experience. Opt for a digital audio guide in six languages, offering a more in-depth understanding of these historical sites. For those who prefer reading, a detailed English guidebook is available. An introductory tour in English is another excellent choice for first-time visitors. For a unique, immersive experience, go for Virtual Reality or multimedia video. You can also get exclusive access to the arena and feel the rush of gladiator battles, that pulled people from all walks of Roman life.

What to bring

  • Have your ID ready for a seamless experience.

  • Bring along a hat and sunscreen. The Roman sun can be surprisingly strong, and there's not a lot of shade in these ancient sites.

  • Wear comfortable shoes. You'll be walking on uneven, ancient cobblestones, and there's quite a bit of ground to cover.

  • You'll get the audio guide through a digital app, which can be downloaded on-site. Just make sure your phone is fully charged and don’t forget to bring your favorite headphones!

Accessibility

  • This experience is unsuitable for wheelchair users and people with reduced mobility.

Additional information

  • You’ll skip the entry lines but for your security, all visitors must pass through an airport-style security check. Expect to stand in line for the check.

  • If the weather's bad, the arena floor might be closed without notice. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be offered in these situations.

  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the start time to avoid the loss of tour.

  • Your voucher will be emailed to you instantly.

  • Display the voucher on your mobile phone with a valid photo ID at the meeting point.

  • Please arrive at the meeting point 30 mins before the scheduled time of your visit to avoid any delays.
