Your tour will begin from our office near to the Colosseum. You will be introduced to your friendly guide, who is fully licensed and an expert in Ancient Rome, as well as the rest of your small group. From our office you will walk up to the Colosseum. You will bypass the long line and walk around to a special entrance. Here you will get ready to enter the Colosseum as the Gladiators once did 2000 years ago- directly onto the Colosseum's stage! The atmosphere will be electric as your guide reccounts the spine-tingling history of the spectacles that once took place in the arena. Lasting approximately 1.5 hours in total, your guide will also take you to the main two levels of the Colosseum. The whole time you will be entertained by their intirguing commentary of Ancient Rome.
The Colosseum has always been a center of entertainment. With our Colosseum with Gladiator Entrance small group tour you will find this is just as true today as it ever was!
