Short Tour Description

Discover the Colosseum in “deep”, getting inside through a privileged access, the Gladiators’ Entrance and imagine the spectators noise waiting for he show, entering directly to the Arena Floor, where animals and gladiators died to entertain the Romans.

Descend to the exclusive Underground, once a dark and noisy place where slaves, gladiators and animals where stored waiting to be lifted up to the Arena Floor and fight.

Follow your local expert guide to the first floor of the Colosseum, and imagine how gladiators lived and fought in the arena for their freedom and how the Roman emperors used the spectacles in the Amphitheater to show their power and authority.

Pass by the Triumphal Arch of the Emperor Constantine, still intact, and enter the Roman Forum.

Climb up to the Palatine Hill, where Romulus and Remus were suckled by the she-wolf and struggled to get the leadership and found the city of Rome. Led to the Roman Forum, the real heart of Rome for centuries, admire the triumphal arches of Titus and Septimius Severus and walk along the Via Sacra, the main street where once were held festivals and triumphal processions and where the Vestal Virgins lived and kept the Sacred Fire constantly burning. Know more about Julius Caesar’s life and death, discovering his Temple and the Curia Julia, the Senate House.
