What to expect
Choose from a morning or afternoon start time when you book, then make your way to the start point near the Colosseum on Via dei Fori Imperiali. A symbol of ancient Rome, the impressive amphitheater is rich with history. Hear tales of the ancient gladiators who fought wild beasts to the delight of the bloodthirsty crowds, and learn about the cruelty and clemency of the emperors who presided over the games. As you learn about the gladiatorial games, explore the areas that are normally off-limits to the general public. See the underground chambers where wild animals were kept in cages, and wander along the passageways that gladiators once paced along. From the Colosseum, head into the heart of the Roman Forum to learn about daily life in ancient times. Amble around the temples and arches as you listen to tales of the politics and religion of Imperial Rome.

Hidden Secrets!
Jun 2019
We not only skipped the line, but had a history lesson in the shade to get us started while our guide navigated the entrance for us. Once inside, it was a very small group and we could easily hear our guide and get great views and pictures of even the top terrace of the Colosseum. The underground was dark and haunting, and an absolute must-see.

We loved the tour of the Colosseum. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. The underground was nice to see and I enjoyed the top area only accessible by our guide. The size of the tour was a good size.

Excellent Tour
Sep 2019
The Small-Group Ancient Rome and Colosseum Underground Tour Saturday morning (24 people) was excellent. I agree with other comment that it was a little convoluted regarding the entry, but once inside with our main Colosseum guide ( a local expert archaeologist), it was a wonderful and informative Colosseum tour with access to Arena Floor, First, Second, Third, Fourth,and Fifth Tier areas.
I did not do the self-guided tour of Palatine Hill and The Forum which I was told is included with the ticket price and good the day of the tour through the next day.

An excellent tour seeing as much of the Colosseum as we could. Felt very privileged to see parts other tourists don't get to. Daniela was very knowledgeable and answered all questions put to her by the group. Thank you.

Great tour, but tickets to Palatine Hill/Forum did NOT work
Sep 2019 • Couples
The tour of the Colosseum was excellent, a little convoluted in regarding entry, but once with our main guide, I could not recommend this tour more!

Problem comes in that when we went to do the self guided tour of Palatine Hill and The Forum the tickets that were given to us had EXPIRED even though you have two days to visit (including the day of the Colosseum tour). We had to pay an additional fee on top of the expensive cost of this tour.

Because it’s through a company and Viator I’m having trouble figuring out how to receive just a partial refund for the cost of going to PH & The Forum.

CHECK YOUR TICKETS. Maybe this was a one-off, but it was incredibly disappointing after the wonderful experience we initially had.

Hello, Thank You for reviewing the tour. we are glad to know that your main tour was a wonderful experience. Unfortunately the Bar Code Reader some times doesn't read the ticket if some water went on the bar code so if you are still in Rome we can send you a new Ticket to complete your experience.Please contact us on tickets@toursofrome.info Best wishes

Fantastic tour
Jul 2019 • Family
It was a lovely tour! Our tour was upgraded to VIP which covered everything. We spent whole day over there. Both of tour guides were fantastic. Only draw back was we were confused about entry ticket. They should have made it clear that ticket would be issued after meeting the tour guide. We moved one place to another to get the information because they they said we had to collect ticket from ticket redemption point but in fact they issued the ticket after meeting. Well done, Tour of Rome.

The booking and meeting of the guide was spot on and everything went to plan, we loved the Colosseum and it was brilliant to be able to visit the underground and higher tier. Mido, our guide, was friendly, engaging and helpful. The archeologist in the Colosseum was also really helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I could've listened to them all day! The roman forum and Pallatine Hill were also a treat.

A few things that could've been better and reflect the missing star in the rating; it would've been great if Mido had met us afterwards just to round things off. The tickets for the Roman Forum were for 6 of us, although complementary, they should either be individual/per party or form part of the tour. It worked out well for us because no one else wanted to use them, so we could do our own thing but it would've been awkward to organise 6 of us. Finally, our tour was an upgrade, which was great but it wasn't like for like, it may be better to be clear about what the differences are with the tours - ours was shorter than the one we booked, so felt like it came to an abrupt end.

Overall, it was a brilliant experience and I would recommend the underground section and higher tier :)

Late changes and half tour only
Jul 2019 • Friends
Tour was changed after booking to what they referred to as an upgrade to include underground area of colosseum. Was told tour would still be three hours and then we would do Roman forum and palatine hills on our own. Colosseum tour ended suddenly at 90 minute mark. We were left on our own on the second level. Our tickets to Roman forum were tagged for six people so we were forced to find 2 others to go over with us. Not professional at all. Very disappointed we didn't get full three hour tour as promised.
