Guaranteed to be a highlight of your trip to Italy, our VIP Colosseum Underground Tour is a limited availability, special access tour that leads you directly to the heart of Ancient Rome, experiencing one of the world’s most iconic structures from a different angle, rarely seen by visitors.

You’ll skip lines at the Colosseum, open gates and cross velvet ropes to enter the famous underground level, where gladiators and animals once waited before battle. Set foot on the reconstructed arena floor for a gladiator’s point of view. Then climb to the upper third tier for the most incredible views over Ancient Rome. These special experiences, only opened to the public in recent years, give you a chance to dig a little deeper and to escape the famous crowds of the Colosseum at even the highest of high season.

Touring in groups of 12 people or fewer for all general access areas, entrance to these areas are limited to only two groups at once, so you’ll share these sacred spaces with a maximum of 24 other people. Of course we’ll also see the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill too, so you’re getting the most complete view of Ancient Rome.
