  • Explore the arena floor of the Colosseum, entering through the “Gladiator’s Gate.” This is the most affordable special-access Colosseum tour on the market.
  • See the Colosseum from both the arena floor and the stands for two unique perspectives throughout your tour.
  • Save time at the Colosseum by bypassing even the smallest lines at the skip-the-line entrance. You won’t wait in line at Palatine Hill or the Roman Forum, either.
  • Decode the mysteries of each spectacular structure with a knowledgeable expert whose stories will bring the stones to life.

We did the Colosseum Tour with the special access to the arena floor through the Gladiator’s Door. It was well worth it especially the skip the line ticket for the colosseum! We learned so much. Our tour guide, Enza was very knowledgeable. Would recommend!

We had a brilliant and enjoyable experience on the tour! Our guide Davide was very knowledgable, answering all of the groups’ questions and included some humour which was well received by the group. The audio headsets provided were very good and allowed you to listen to the guide when walking which was needed amongst all the ambient noise. The Gladiator’s Gate tour is highly recommended with access to the arena floor to see such a fantastic site. Overall we highly recommend this tour!

The tour meet up point was easy to find and staff pleasant. There was some confusion at the beginning because one of the tour guides was off sick, so we started 15 mins late. Unfortunately this meant our tour group was double the size. Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and tried her best. We did struggle to hear due to static on the mic, most likely due to the number of people in the group. We really enjoyed visiting the colloseum arena and palatine hill. Overall the experience was a little disappointing considering the price however I'd definitely recommend getting a tour of the colloseum arena, albeit a smaller group.

This is excellent tour. But you need to take a tour where you begin at 7 AM. Otherwise, the crowds are unbearable. Our guide de, Julia, was excellent contentless. Excellent the places we went, and the information we were given required some time to digest afterward. Highly recommend.
