Discover the Roman Empire’s most famous amphitheater on a guided visit at the quietest time of day, at night. Enter the amphitheater and listen as your guide brings to life the arena’s past. Imagine the crowds in the stands cheering on their favorite gladiator.  Continue to the Underground chambers and passageways that normally have restricted access to the public. See where the wild animals and gladiators were stowed before their battles and the numerous elevators that hoisted beasts into the arena. Let your guide bring the Colosseum’s history to life, with stories of gladiators that fought here and what life in the arena was like. Enjoy the advantage of visiting at night, when the crowds have gone and the monument is illuminated in lights.

Among the best ways to see the Colosseum. Highly enjoyable

The great surprises of this tour included the engaging guide (who had many real stories to tell), simplicity of booking and arrival, the headset system used (makes sure we all hear), great perspectives and photograph opportunities, avoidance of the crowds and of course the coolness of the evening. We are a group of four and the entire group was only fifteen people. This tour was a winner for us.
