Full description
Escape the agonizing queues of tourists trying to get entrance to Rome’s most iconic landmark and enjoy priority access through the back entrance. From there, enter the reconstructed Arena Floor, an area not accessible to the general public. Take an amazing panorama photo as the Colosseum will be surrounding you in its beauty. Next, visit the first and second tiers of the Colosseum where the wealthiest of Romans sat. The best seats in the house are located in the same area as modern stadiums today. Your guide will then lead you through the ancient downtown known as the Roman Forum. Here you will see the remains of ancient senate buildings, temples to Roman gods, and multiple grand arches. Listen to stories of ancient Rome and learn all about Roman life from a passionate guide.
