Full description
Skip the long lines to one of the most popular monuments in Rome and enter the Colosseum for a 1-hour guided tour of the mighty arena inside and out. Get a brief introduction to the Roman civilization from the outside of the building before learning the history beyond the iconic façade.

Journey back to the days of the Flavian dynasty and hear how they built the world's largest amphitheater to showcase Roman engineering techniques and as a stage for popular entertainments and games. Walk through the arena with your guide as they explain the history of the monument and the people behind it.

Hear tales of gladiators who gallantly entertained the crowds, separate fact from fiction and more. Then, get as much time as you like to explore within the permitted sections on your own.
