Tour Description

A Colosseum tour with a difference

Step off the normal tourist path for a top level Colosseum tour that offers unparalleled views of the ancient ruin and the historic center of Rome. Your tour starts with skip-the-line Colosseum tickets and a full tour of the general-access areas as you learn the story of this iconic building.

After you've seen the general-access areas, you'll pass through gates normally closed to visitors and climb to the heights of the building for a top level Colosseum tour. Exploring 3rd, 4th, and 5th levels, you'll bask in jaw-dropping views and have plenty of time to take pictures as your guide transports you back to Ancient Rome with stories of the people who once used this magnificent building.

Enjoy a Roman Forum and Colosseum tour with an expert guide

After your top tier Colosseum tour, you'll skip the lines over at the Roman Forum and head inside for a full tour of Ancient Rome's bustling civic center and the Palatine Hill. As you literally walk in the footsteps of men like Julius Caesar (the roads contain their original paving stones) you'll get a fascinating crash course in the history of the empire that founded Western civilization. Along the way, you'll stop by old palaces, monuments, temples, and governmental buildings that your guide will help you interpret and understand. There is no better way to take in this incredible archeological site which can seem jumbled and confusing if you see it without someone who has spent years studying it.

I apologize for this late response. Felix was a wonderful tour guide. It was a very hot afternoon and he had already done a hot morning tour. He was energetic, fun and had many interesting stories to tell that related to what we were seeing. We were all hot, uncomfortable and tired but he kept us motivated and interested. How he kept going was amazing. Thank you Felix.
