Your Experience

Cloaked in darkness and lit up like a stage, the Colosseum during the evening is an impressive and dramatic sight not to be missed by any visitor to Rome. Now you can experience this scene both inside and out, on our special access evening tour.

Experience the Colosseum Without the Crowds

You’ll enter after the Colosseum has closed to the public when this ancient amphitheater is at its most quiet. With an expert, English-speaking guide on hand, you’ll explore restricted areas, such as the Colosseum underground where gladiators and animals once waited before battle.

See Spectacular Views from Capitoline Hill

Your tour begins at the Campidoglio, or Capitoline Hill, for the most beautiful views overlooking the Roman Forum. Closed at this hour, the empty Forum makes for one of Rome’s most striking sights. From your bird’s eye view, you’ll hear about the birth of Rome and the exploits of emperors who took turns building the empire up and tearing it down.

Take a Personal Tour of the Colosseum

After your visit to the Forum, your guide will lead you to the crown jewel of Rome: the Colosseum. Here you will hear the tales that bring the amphitheater to life – the rituals carried out by gladiators before battle; the emperors who decided life or death; and the politics that played out in the arena.

Small Groups & Expert Guides

With groups of only 25 people or less, your tour will be intimate and your guide easy to interact with. This unique tour is perfect for visitors who want to explore the Colosseum at a slower pace than is possible during the chaotic (and hot!) daylight hours.
