Full description
Start the tour at one of the most famous monuments in the world, the Colosseum. Avoid the long lines and enter with your skip-the-line admission tickets and make your way in to see the immense amphitheater. Your professional, English speaking guide will tell stories of emperors and gladiators, as you imagine what it would have felt like to be a spectator. Outside the Colosseum, visit the Roman gladiator school ruins where the warriors once lived and trained in preparation for their battles. At the Basilica of Saint Clement you’ll learn about the 3-tiered basilica, which was built over the 1st, 4th, and 12th centuries, while you admire the grand interior. Your guide will provide insight into why it was built, how each layer was discovered, and the stories behind the impressive frescoes. Head through maze-like aisles, one level beneath the ground, where the 4th century basilica lies, then proceed down to a lower level where you’ll see the remains of the 1st-century building, secret rooms and corridors made from volcanic stone.

We had a wonderful guide named Donato. He was extremely knowledgeable about the colosseum and the church and underground. He was passionate and personable. My daughter had taken a tour of the Colosseum once before and was not excited to do it again. After the tour she shared that she learned so much more with Donato as the guide. We were a group of four family members and all felt that this was the best tour of our entire trip. He is an asset to your company. Thank you and thank him again for us.
