Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Green Souvenir Kiosk in front of the Colosseo metro stop - located just outside the lower level. A representative will be there holding a sign with our company name on it.
What to bring?
Archaeological sites are normally paved with rocky terrain so wear comfortable sneakers. Bring sunscreen and a water bottle for hot summer months.
Q: What happens after I book this tour?
A: Upon booking, we send you an email requesting the dates of birth and names of all members in your party. If you have children under the age of 18 in your party, please send us a copy of their passports for proof of age so we can purchase their tickets in advance.
Q: Does my tour still run if it rains?
A: The Roman Guy runs guided tours rain or shine. In cases of heavy rainfall, the Colosseum management may close the Arena Floor at the last minute for safety. We do our best to make alternate Arena Floor arrangements, but we cannot guarantee a substitute date. If your group is subject to closures by the Colosseum and does not get access to the Arena Floor, we still continue on a 2.5-hour tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. There is no refund given if the arena is closed for this tour.
Q: What if I'm not sure about my mobility?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Private Colosseum Tour.
Q: What if the Arena Floor is Closed?
A: Sometimes the Colosseum closing down access to restricted areas with very little notice. This could be due to rain or some sort of repair going on. In this case, we will visit other areas and the tour will run with the same duration. Sorry, but we do not offer a refund if the Arena Floor is closed.

Excellent Experience of the Colosseum!!
We had an excellent tour of the Colosseum with Faby! We were pleased that we didn't have to wait long to get inside the Colosseum, it was a very easy and stress free process, which is why we booked the tour. We also appreciated having access to the Arena Floor, it gave us such perspective of the history of the Colosseum. Faby did an amazing job explaining the history..very thorough and answered all of our questions. She used a lot of visual things to explain as well as point out areas of importance on the tour. Originally we were going to go on our own, but I am so glad we booked this tour to learn the significance of what we were looking at. This tour also included the Forum which was super informative. We really enjoyed walking around the grounds and enjoyed the information Faby shared. At the end of the tour we had time to explore Palatine Hill on our own and it was well worth the view of the entire city! I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to truly appreciate the history of the Colosseum!
Fabulous access and details!!
We've been to Colosseum before but never to the underground areas. This tour offers a private, unparalleled experience. Our guide (Faby) went above and beyond with her explanations and time, and truly seemed to enjoy her work. This tour was the highlight of our trip!
