Tour Highlights

  • Hear stories of lions, gladiators & emperors on this thorough exploration of Ancient Rome.

  • With small groups of 15 people or fewer, your tour will be intimate and fun.
The Colosseum Inside the Colosseum - Ground Level The Arch of Constantine Admiring Ancient Rome from the Colosseum The Arch of Constantine & Colossem The Arch of Constantine Palatine Hill (incl. on our Colosseum tours) View of the Colosseum from Palatine Hill Discovering ancient palaces The Roman Forum (incl. on our Colosseum tours) Church at The Roman Forum Arch of Titus, Roman Forum Take a walk through Ancient Rome



With privileged entrance you’ll skip long lines to gain immediate access to the Colosseum, where you’ll start your journey into Ancient Rome, led by our passionate and entertaining tour guides.

Follow your guide around the first and second levels of the Colosseum, as they tell you the stories that bring ancient ruins to life. You’ll marvel at the ingenuity of Ancient Roman engineers; hear tales of public executions and blood-thirsty crowds; and discover the secret history of this ancient amphitheater.

So much of what you see and hear of the Colosseum in films and books is untrue – distinguish fact from fiction with the help of your expert guide. They’ll teach you the real hand symbols used by emperors to condemn gladiators to death, shock you with the secret, behind-the-scenes shenanigans of gladiators and fascinate you with the other lesser-known uses of the Colosseum.


Your Colosseum tour will teach about more than just gladiators. You’ll learn about everyday life in Ancient Rome too: A lesson which extends to the next stop on our journey – the Roman Forum. Here you’ll encounter the stores of moneylenders; the final resting place of Julius Caesar; the incredible Arch of Constantine; and the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, whose namesake were charged with keeping the sacred flame alive, plus the grave responsibility of bestowing clemency on men condemned to death.

We’ll also visit the Palatine Hill; the birthplace of Ancient Rome and the location of some of its oldest and most impressive ruins. Learn the legend of twins Remus & Romulus, found and raised by a shewolf. They may seem like old and distant stories, but with the help of your guide you’ll gain a real understanding of how the Roman Empire has impacted the world you know today – and even your own day-to-day life!


We’re passionate about the Colosseum and Ancient Rome and about sharing that history with you, so we’ve worked hard to build a team of only the best, most engaging tour guides. With five-star ratings on TripAdvisor, we’re confident that they’re the perfect hosts to help you get the most from your Colosseum tour. With small groups of 15 people or fewer, you’ll find them easy to engage with while headsets make them easy to hear at all times and impossible to lose.

You could visit the Colosseum on your own but we guarantee that you’ll get so much more from your time if you take a walk with us; not just seeing Ancient Rome but really experiencing it.

Mario was an amazing guide and very passionate when explaining the history of the Forum and Colosseum. I would recommend this tour to family and friends!
We had to reschedule one of our 4 tours and were charged 144 Euros. You would think after booking four tours for 12 people you would be willing to work with us. We will not be referring your company any longer.

Pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide
Igor was a terrific guide and provided a great deal of interesting facts and history during our tour.

Extremely knowledgeable tour guide, Sev, gave numerous examples and facts of daily Roman life effected by the Colosseum and Forum. He kept it simplified and relatable to our present life, political aspects, and group entertainments. Would definitely take another tour with Sev and your company.
Vincenzo was awesome. He has a gift of telling the history of the places we saw. If you can include some drawings of what each place looked like when built that would help us to imagine it better

Really enjoyed this tour particularly our guide's discussion of the ruins. She added so much to this part of the tour and made it extremely interesting.
Good tour . Francesca was full of information about what we were seeing.
Perhaps spend slightly less time talking about the Colosseum and a little more time talking about the Forum and Palatine Hill. Zero complaints though, had a fantastic time.
Very interesting tour. Loved having all the information and insight from our tour guide
Davide was an awesome guide, knowledgeable, relatable, funny when need be. :) A well planned tour, long enough to explore everything, not so long as to get exhausted.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, funny and kind. She made sure our tour was stroller friendly. And she was very sweet with our 18 month old daughter.
Fantastic tour and we had a problem with our flight out to Rome but Walks changed the day at my request without any hesitation. So glad we didn't just stumble around on our own and decided to use this company.
The guide was beyond excellent!
Lovely guide, nice easy pace recommend this tour
Great guide. Would highly recommended Giovanni!
For seniors like my wife and I, the walk up and down hills was tiring . However, it was worth the trek. Guide was so fantastic and the ruins were spectacular! The best!
Camilla was wonderful. We learned to much, and which we could have spent even more time with her. She was amazing to walk on the cobblestones with her tall shoes! Great experience. Thank you.
We had taken a similar tour a number of years ago and this tour exceeded our expectations and gave us information and guided us through areas I never knew existed. Ettore was a great guide that brought this wonderful part of Rome to life!
Luigi was awesome. I enjoyed every detail he could tell us with his background from archaeology.
Maurizio was amazing! We loved listening to him talk and his knowledge of history was astounding! He even had answers to our questions. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and Maurizio!
nice guide a little serious but very knoledgable
The tour was perfect for me and my husband. The guide was very clear talking, and shared with us a lot of information. Thanks!
I really enjoyed the tour, the guide's explanation really transported us through Time (his name I believe was Sev) but I wish there had been more sightseeing to the places :) Overall it was a really nice tour
Our guide (I believe her name was Francesca) was amazing! Very knowledgeable and engaging through the whole tour. My mother walks with a cane and she helped make sure mother had access to the lift, even though it was very busy. Thank you!
Camilla was an excellent & knowledgeable guide; very personable.
Good Tour with a good guide. If the Palatine Hill would not close at 18:30, the guide would explain much more. I really enjoy this tour.
Brilliant, Maristellas knowledge and enthusiasm was amazing.
Davide was an amazing guide. He obviously loves what he does, and we learned so much from him. He was excellent!
Sev was great! Thanks!
Vittorio was a really good tour guide. He made the tour enjoyable and answered all the questions we had. We had a brilliant time and would recommend the tour to anyone visiting Rome.
We have had the most amazing, memorable, without a moment of waste tour of Rome owing to the knowledgable guide Marianna; highly recommended and would do it again for sure!!
It was pretty basic but the guide was lovely and the tour was very interesting. I would recommend it to my friends.
Same comments as above. I would definitely recommend Walks of Italy to friends!
Our guide was great and very knowledgeable. She was a fantastic historian.

This was the best part of our Italy trip. The tour guide Sev is outstanding!
I thk the name of my guide was. Paula(sp?). Wonderful. Informative. Great personality... Great visi to use A guide. If anyone tours the Sistine Chaple without a guide that would be a great mistakeThe explaination nd description of the Painings
The only way to see the colosseum, the guide was wonderful. The pace was nice giving us time to really look around and take photos.
Julietta was an awesome guide. The tour was well planned and hit all the right spots. I feel that the underground or the lower level of Colosseum could have been added to tour.
Great tour! We covered a lot of ground efficiently with a great commentary from the guide.
Absolutely fantastic
Ivana was fantastic!
Great tour. Very enjoyable and informative.

Camilla was a terrific guide, very knowledgable and answered all questions expertly! She made the tour fantastic and even though it was quite chilly the day we took the tour she never complained and kept us interested and curious.
Uta was fantastic! Really enjoyed the book she had that showed pictures of Rome the. And now. She seemed to have a sixth sense of where the crowds wouldn't be and we would get to places where we had the whole area to ourselves. Of all the guides we had throughout the trip, she was most enjoyable.
Great! Would recommend to others
Loved our tour. Guide was outstanding. All well organized, fascinating, just a wonderful experience.
Our guide, David, was very knowledgeable and personable! He was attentive to answering questions and being mindful of the comfort of everyone in our group.
Amazing tour and guide.
Knowledgeable leader who provided lots of good information. Was attentive to the needs of the group and kept the tour moving along. Was very open to answering any questions
Thanks for helping us move our tour to a different day due to the March 25th EU event. It would have been a shame to miss this spectacular, educational tour!
Amazing tour guide!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful tour!!
Very knowledgeable and personable guide. Made the tour interesting.
Great tour and tour guide. His having a background in archeology really seemed appropriate and fun given the tour content. Really appreciated the depth of the stories and visual pics on his tablet as well as his taking the time to take group pictures for people in the tour at several locations.
We were lucky and ended up having a private tour. Francisco gave great detail and answered all our questions, even those about other sites in ancient Italy.
Fabrizio provided an outstanding tour. His knowledge of history and languages kept us fascinated throughout the tour. We were sorry it had to end. We highly recommend this tour.
Luigi really made ancient Rome come alive for myself and my family. We feel so lucky to have been on the tour with him. Thanks again!
Our guide was wonderful - her background in archaeology really shines through! We also liked the visual aides that helped bring the ruins to life!
Luigi is a very attentive guide who gives lots of valuable information. I'd book the tour again anytime.
Guide with a lot of knowledge and a passion for what he talked about.
Francesco was incredible. You can tell he has a genuine love of the history and the city. Highly recommend him.
Lovely tour guide who was very knowledgeable and informative. Really enjoyed the tour
The guide was excellent. He was an archeologist and was very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge. Be prepared to climb many steep stairs, since this tour involves lots of elevation change. Again, an excellent tour and I highly recommend it.
Julietta has a great sense of humor and I learned a lot from her!
We were totally pleased with our tour and the guide. We could not have asked for more. We are also highly pleased with the flexibility of your company that allowed us to move our tours to accommodate changes in our schedule. Tremendous company!
Such a great experience, very informative and funny! I would recommend walks of Italy and use it again!!!
Andrea was a wonderful guide. He did an amazing job. Grazie.

Jon is amazing and brought history to life with his stories and knowledge.
I am a history professor now but did guide work while I was in graduate school. Giulietta was great. I was extremely happy with the way things worked out. Giulietta was an excellent guide, but I found that to be true of everyone I dealt with in your company. Thanks.

Fernando was a wonderful guide, professional, personable and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. He is an archeologist with first hand knowledge of the digs that were done at the Forum and Colosseum. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in Ancient Rome.
I did a similar tour in 2008 when I was in Rome and I felt this definitely surpassed that one! The tour guide was well informed and went at a good pace for all of us. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Luciana was fabulous, so incredible knowledgeable and interesting. I would recommend this tour 100% and hope to take it again next time in Rome. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Very informative and enjoyable tour!
Luciana covered the sights with knowledge and efficiency. Our group was small, but Luciana took the time to learn each of our names.
Francesca was absolutely spectacular and made the tour a spectacular experience. She was incredibly knowledgeable and really brought the history of Rome to life. I will definitely ask for her tour next time we are in Rome!!!! This was the highlight of our trip! Todd from Seattle.
Very informative, knowledgeable- and small group was a must!!
Although there were probably bless with her mic for the first part they met her and replaced it after we left the colosseum. It was fine thereafter. She was knowledgeable and humorous. Money well spent.
Excellent tour and beyond excellent guide. She really made the Roman world come alive. We are so glad that we took all 3 tours. Thank you Walks of Italy.
Took two tours with you guys. I wish there was a way to work in time for the gift shops.
Luigi was an excellent tour guide.
Loved it.
The tour with our guide was excellent - she was very knowledgeable and made the tour a joy. I will definitely recommend your service to friends who travel to Rome.
She was amazing! Very knowledgeable, very accommodating and so passionate. We loved her tour very much❣

Fascinating story telling
Our guide was Lenora and and she did an excellent job explaining every detail of this tour. Extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any question our group asked. Loved her sense of humor and appreciate how she is so proud of Rome and all its beauty. Five stars!
All went very well. Our guide was extremely informative and communicated very well. Would recommend your tours to,any friend

Incredible team.
Bruno was excellent.
Fantastic tour with Guido! He provided a great deal of historical information and had visual aids to show renderings of what structures may have looked like. A very pleasant tour!
Our guide was awesome. We were very grateful for her tour.
Sylvia did an amazing job- we throroughly enjoyed our tour! She was so knowledgeable - would highly recommend!
Tour guide was excellent. So informative thay some of us were on information overload. But that was us, not our guide. It is definitely the way not to just see, but to understand what one is seeing and understand to some degree the history. Would definitely do it again.
I was blown away by everything. |Our tour guide was obviously well studied in history. She made the tour very interesting. Was well worth the money for sure.
The tour was fantastic! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the sites we saw and all things Rome in general. When we plan another trip to Rome or anywhere in Italy that Walks of Italy provides tours, we will be sure to book another great tour! Thanks for showing us the sites!
We thought the tour was fantastic. Bruno did an excellent job. Even when a downpour stalled our tour of the Forum for a while, he still kept us interested and entertained with stories and historical information til the weather calmed.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. If anything, she imparted TOO MUCH information, and made it hard to grasp the high points. When traveling in Rome and taking all of it in, sometimes less is more. She gave us more +.
We like the tour and will refer your tour to our friend who visit Rome in the future, thanks to your tour guide team from United State of America tourist.
Great tour. Fun and very interesting!
