Meet your English-speaking guide outside the monumental Colosseum and get an introduction to the finest arena of the Roman Empire from an expert on Roman history.

Then, skip the long lines for a privileged look at the underground tunnels and chambers, restricted to a few selected visitors each day. Marvel at the engineering skills of the Romans as you see the remains of the 88 elevators that lead up to the arena floor.

Continue to the arena floor for an exclusive chance to stand on the same spot that the gladiators stood over 2,000 years ago. Enjoy some free time to explore at leisure. Then, make you way to the Roman Forum to learn more about the heart of the ancient city. Continue to Palatine Hill, where the nobles of Ancient Rome built their luxury villas.
