This guided tour with skip the line access to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum offers an in-depth look at the fascinating true stories behind the city’s most famous ancient sites. Along the way, you'll dispel popular misconceptions and get expert insights into their purpose—including the brutal spectacles that once took place inside the arena. There’s no more entertaining or enlightening way to experience the Colosseum.

Beat the crowds with skip the line Colosseum tickets.

This skip the line Roman Colosseum tour lets you bypass the crowds and walk right into Rome's preeminent attraction with a small group of 16 people (or fewer) and a local expert guide. You'll explore the first and second levels of the Colosseum as your guide regales you with stories and anecdotes that will enthrall young and old alike. Ancient history has never been more accessible or engaging than it is when its stories are brought to life by a guide who has dedicated their life to studying it.

We booked and paid for a morning tour that included the underground areas of the Colosseum. We were told at the last minute that the tour was cancelled and we were booked for a later tour that was less extensive than the one we booked. This was the second Walks tour that was either totally cancelled or modified. We have not been offered any refund, even though we paid for a more extensive tour. That being said, the tour was excellent as was the tour guide.
