Frequently Asked Questions
Where to meet?
Behind the green souvenir kiosk in front of the “Colosseo” metro stop - located just outside the lower level entrance/exit. 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: Can my tour's start time change?
A: Yes, but not always. The system of making reservations is very complicated. Think of it like back-stage passes. The good news is that we will definitely try to reach you by telephone or email if this happens and it will almost always be at least 7 days prior to your tour date.
Q: Can my tour be canceled?
A: We run all of our tours regardless of how many people are on them, but this tour can be canceled if the Colosseum's management decides to close the areas down. It's a 2000-year-old structure so these types of things happen. We will offer you a full refund if this happens as well as some alternative options. We want to make you happy.
Q: What if it rains?
A: Rain happens, but our tour guides are waterproof! We'll run the tour rain or shine. The Colosseum Management will shut down access to the underground and other restricted areas in some cases if they feel it is unsafe. In this case, we should still be able to enter the building, but not access the restricted areas. In compensation of missing the restricted areas, we will provide an 18€ refund.
Q: I have trouble walking. Is this tour right for me?
If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Colosseum private tour.

I usually don't like guided tours, I prefer walking around at my own pace with a downloaded audio tour, but this was the exception! I learned so much about the Colosseum and was able to get into underground areas as well as the restricted top floors. Plus we walked around the Forum. I never felt like the tour was dragging or that I was "stuck" in a group - the tour guide was friendly and informative. It was well worth signing up for this tour - highly recommend it!
Really enjoyable. Well organised. I was knackered after 3 hours but you exit the forum right across the road from some nice restaurants. Really easy to book on their website and their YouTube page has lots of great content about places all over Italy.
Being able to tour the restricted areas of the Colosseum made me feel like a VIP. This tour was great and our tour guide was so knowledgable!
