You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
This tour will include several flights of stairs to arrive at the very top of the Colosseum on the Fifth Level and some walking on uneven terrain.
Your tour begins outside the Colosseum, where you’ll take a few minutes to admire the ancient stadium’s incredible exterior. You will then skip the line and enter the Colosseum.
With views this amazing, you'll wonder why these areas were limited to the Roman plebeian class. Your guide will reveal some of the Colosseum’s many secrets and legends.
After visiting the Colosseum’s third level, you’ll ascend even higher to the fourth. Access to the upper levels is perfectly safe, but we recommend wearing comfortable shoes for the hike.
Take one last climb to the fifth tier, the highest point in the Colosseum. The climb is worth it for the views over the Eternal City alone.
Much like in a modern-day stadium, the less you spend, the further away from the action you are. This is why we call this section, the "nosebleed" section.
Walk the streets of Ancient Rome’s political, economical and religious center on a guided tour of the Roman Forum.
This building was where many of the world's most important decisions at the time were made - imagine if these walls could speak.
The ancient temple is one of the best-preserved ancient temples of Rome.
It is impossible to miss the ruins of this incredible cathedral that towers above all of the other buildings in the area.
You’ll have top-to-bottom access to the Colosseum Underground, Arena Floor, lower levels and the recently-reopened top levels. Access all of the Colosseum’s restricted areas and see 2,000 years of history up close. This Colosseum underground and top levels tour features a guided exploration of the Roman Forum. This four-hour tour includes:
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.

The access to all of the tiers really blew me away!

The tour I had previously taken was brief and not as in-depth. Choosing to revisit Italy, and retake a Colosseum tour was one of my best choices in life. Choosing The Roman Guy to tour from was the first best choice! Undeniably great!..more

Each member of their team seems to be smart and reliable. Our guide this year, Serena, was very fun and professional.
