Ivana our guide was incredible. Her wealth of knowledge was truly appreciated. It's a great pleasure to be guided by someone who loves what she does. Her passion for the history was inspiring. She should be paid in gold bars for what she does. Awesome!!!

Our guide Ambra really made our tour first class. She was extremely knowledgeable and really explained the various parts of our tour. I'd highly rexommed it and if you get Ambra as your guide you won't be dissapointed!!

You will enter the iconic monument from the newly-opened Gladiator's Entrance, giving you a unique vantage point of the Colosseum. This allows you to slip past the long lines at the main entrances and enter from the back. Marvel at the impressive architecture as you walk past the Arena Floor, just like the gladiators who stepped out there for fights to the death. The partial reconstruction of the arena floor gives you a stunning view of the tiered ruins from where up to 80,000 spectators once cheered on for these gory fights.

An expert English-speaking guide will accompany you and regale you with stories about the Colosseum. Varying from exotic staged hunts and mock sea battles, the true stories about this impressive monument are what legends are made of.
