Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Green Souvenir Kiosk in front of “Colosseo” metro stop - located just outside the lower level entry. 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. If you plan on staying in the Roman Forum, bring a snack.
Q: Is it possible The Roman Guy will change this tour time?
A: Yes! It is possible. This tour is highly coveted and the reservations are hard to get. This is an industry challenge for tour companies. Times often change by a few hours and we will almost always update you at least 7 days before your tour. We really want you to be happy as a traveler and will do our best to meet the needs of your schedule. That being said, we are limited by a very low supply from the Colosseum. If necessary, The Roman Guy will call the number you've provided or email you with the goal of informing you of this change. If you are nervous about keeping up with time-changes we recommend booking a different Colosseum Tour. If you want to make sure your Colosseum tour is going to run as scheduled please email or call +1 888 290 5595.
Q: Can my tour be canceled or moved to a different day?
A: Yes. Obtaining reservations for this tour is a complicated process, but we are the best at doing it! However, sometimes we don't always secure reservations for every day. While this is rare, it does happen. We will let you know at least 7 days prior to your tour if this is the case for you. You'd be entitled to 100% refund and we would do our best to move you to another one of our incredible restricted access tours! We got you covered!
Q: What happens if it rains?
A: Rain happens, but the show must go on. We'll run our Colosseum Tours rain or shine. If rainfall is extremely heavy the Colosseum management will sometimes close the restricted areas for safety reasons. In the case all of the resticted areas are closed, we will offer an 18€ refund to compensate for not accessing the areas, but we'll still take you inside the Colosseum, Palatine Hill & Roman Forum.
Q: I have issues walking. Is this tour for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Colosseum private tour.

dungeons were so cool!!
My husband and I took this tour with our kids yesterday and it blew us away. Seeing the grounds beneath the Arena Floor made for a really special experience. Props to the Roman Guys!
Amazing!!! Our tour guide Faby, was on time, super knowledgeable, and friendly. Totally recommend this tour as well. Also, one of us got sick upon arriving in Italy, and we took a chance on changing our tour date to two days from original Date, and even though we did not get the full four hour tour that we had originally booked and paid for, we did end up being able to change it and we ended up with a 2 1/2 hour tour which was just as wonderful and we didn’t lose any money it turned out it was almost the same money. The tour people were super super wonderful on the phone On trying to accommodate us. We totally recommend the Roman guy for your Tours. We did a lot of research online before going to Italy and picking the right company and we are extremely satisfied with our choice of the Roman Guy.
My husband and I did the Colosseum tour and it was amazing! Our guide, Papa Franco, was great! So knowledgeable! Highly recommend booking your tours through the Roman Guy. The whole experience with them was great!
