- The Tour
The most peaceful and exclusive way to visit one of the world’s greatest icons, you’ll enter the Colosseum at night to access special areas usually closed to the public.
- The Sights
Delve into the heart of the Colosseum underground, walk on the reconstructed arena floor & admire the silence of general access areas. Also includes Roman Forum overlook.
- The Experience
Few people have or will ever see the Colosseum like this – without the crowds, the heat and the noise. With small groups of 12 or fewer we preserve the peace and intimacy of this special experience.
- City: Rome
- 2hrs 15mins
- Start Time: 8.00 PM
Any visit to the Colosseum is memorable but some are more remarkable than others. Visiting at night, after the daytime crowds have disappeared, when the sun is low and tension hangs in the air; travelling with a Colosseum guard who opens areas usually closed to the public – well, that’s about as remarkable as it gets.
Before you travel, please read our important notes about possible disruptions & site entrance requirements
NOTE: There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.
New regulations have been set by the Colosseum Administration regarding the VIP sections of the Colosseum (underground & arena). These regulations have significantly reduced the number of group tour reservations available, rendering access to the VIP areas even more exclusive. As a result, when necessary, two of our groups will be combined in the VIP sections. This means that two groups of maximum 12 people each will access the VIP sections together. Our guests will be the only people in these areas as they are closed to the general public. For the remainder of the tour (Piazza Venezia, Roman Forum Overlook and the regular sections of the Colosseum) guests will be guaranteed a group of 12 or less.
The Colosseum is subject to closure due to assembly meetings, strikes or other factors. While rare, these events happen at least 4 times a year. The Underground is subject to closure due to flooding after extreme rains. The Colosseum administration is usually aware of these factors and informs us the day before (though sometimes only the morning of) a given closure. Please provide us with detailed contact information in the event that we need to reach you to attempt to reschedule your tour.
Please be advised that, due to the nature of the site and technical problems with the elevator, those with walking difficulties cannot at this time access the underground and top tier of the Colosseum.
