This Roman Colosseum tour let's you skip long entrance lines and walk right into Rome's preeminent attraction with a small group of 15 people or fewer and a local expert guide. You'll explore the first and second levels of the Colosseum, as your guide tells you stories and anecdotes that will enthrall everyone from the oldest history lovers to the youngest students. Ancient history is never been more approachable or engaging than when it is explained to you by a guide who has dedicated their life to studying it.


After the Colosseum tour, you'll head over to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, where you'll also skip entrance lines with special access Roman Forum tickets. Once inside, you'll explore ancient palaces, temples, markets and monuments as you walk the same streets that were once frequented by great historical figures like Julius Caesar. The ruins aren't always easy to interpret, but once again your guide will be on hand to help transport you back in time with their wealth of knowledge


Every member of our guide team is an expert on Ancient Rome and is passionate about sharing their culture and history with visitors. Small groups of 15 people or fewer mean you’ll find them easy to engage with while headsets make them easy to hear at all times and impossible to lose. When you travel with Walks we don't just want you to see Rome, we want to you to experience it to its fullest.

Important information

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.

The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).

The Colosseum is subject to occasional closures. The Colosseum administration is usually aware of this and informs us the day before or of a given closure. Please provide us with detailed contact information in the event that we need to reach you to reschedule your tour. The Colosseum and Roman Forum are ancient sites that are neither wheelchair nor stroller friendly. Please contact our Customer Care team for more details at info@walksofitaly.com.

It was a great tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. We were quite impressed with the guides knowledge of the Colosseum.
Guido is a wonderful guide. He has a professional background in archaeology and it is obvious and contagious. He is clear and gives out information which is easily accessible to all levels of understanding; the information is relevant to pure tourists or to people who have studied ancient Roman history in university. The tour has a clear and detailed itinerary which is instructive and thoroughly enjoyable. He is one of the finest guides I have had and he even seems to be over-qualified to be "a guide" but he does it very well indeed. He wanted to book another tour he suggested with Walks of Italy in Domus Aurea but we had not time. Highly recommended guide and excellent tour.
Guide was excellent...very informative and helpful. Very pleased! Thank you
Francesca was awesome! Very insightful, friendly and made the tour interesting and fun

This tour and our great guide made Rome come to life for me and my friends . We had to pause for a short rain but that added to the quiet dignity of the forum . It was amazing. the small size of the group was important as well. We appreciated his English was so good as we hung on every word. Outstanding!!
Angela was a wonderful guide, very friendly and very passionate about showing us around the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. She was very knowledgeable and made our tour very interesting. Thanks Walks of Italy. Love the smaller size groups as easier to follow the tour. The tour was run very professionally and information provided prior to tour was great as it made finding meeting points easier. Would definitely use your company again in the future.
Angela is an extremely good guide. She is enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. We learned so much and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her. I would recommend her tours to anyone.
The guide was very informative and really loves her job and archeology.
Excellent tour with history and positive attitude
Extremely informative and very enjoyable!
We enjoyed every minute of the tour with our guide Tiberio. He was so knowledgeable and entertaining he certainly brought the Colosseum to life. It was well worth the cost and we would recommend highly.
Tiberio was wonderful. His knowledge was incredible! He was very courteous and friendly.

The content of the Colosseum tour was outstanding. Tour guide Michele came across as very well versed in the subject matter, was very professional in his presentation and considerate of the groups physical limits (my wife has issues with her knee and hip) for the pace of the tour. Online ticketing process was simple and quick. By the Way - I also took Twilight City Stroll (Oct. 6) with guide Tony (a lady), and Vatican Tour (Oct. 8) with Dario. Again both these tours and guides were outstanding. FYI - Tour guide Michele said artist Raphael died of Syphilis and tour guide Dario said Raphael died of Malaria. You may want to get story consistent. Regards, Rey Wosar
Marco was GREAT.
Everything was excellent. I will use Walks of Italy again in my future travels and recommend to my friends. Grazie!
Marco was very engaging. We enjoyed his discussions about the Roman history, building techniques, and the bonus was his knowledge of botany!

Our tour of the Colosseum, Palentine hill and Roman forum was amazing. Filled with lots of information and very smooth for access to all places. Our guide was Uta who was very friendly, engaging and professional. We all had a great time on the tour and would recommend this 100%.
Paola was fantastic! We could not have had a better tour guide. She was passionate, entertaining and most informative. Would not change a thing.
Paula was very fun and informative!
