    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 ...

    Visiting the grand Roman Colosseum is a must on every traveler's bucket list But what if you could take things up a notch?

    This tour of the Colosseum is a truly unique experience. The virtual reality experience immerses you in ancient Rome through an animated and interactive 3D reproduction of the Colosseum. Using a multisensory experience and Oculus VR glasses, you will be transported to ancient Rome while listening to a multilingual audio guide that will provide you with authentic historical knowledge about these places.

    Admire the bronze figure of Nero that is covered in gold and numerous other nearby monuments as you virtually stroll across the packed historic square. Next, at the arena's stage, hear the roar of lions and the clash of swords as the gladiators battle. Finally, roam the eerie underground passageways where slaves were housed in order to prepare for the performances.

    Once your VR tour is over, you can independently roam the halls and passages of the Colosseum. Also access Palatine Hill, one of the most ancient parts of the city, and the Roman Forum, located at the center of Rome which has religious, political and social significance.
