An amazing way to spend a day in Rome. This combo tour will span over two millenia from the ancient city center to one of the hippest neighborhoods of modern Rome. On the first portion of the tour step out onto the reconstructed Colosseum Arena Floor where you can feel like a gladiator and get a panoramic view of the historic stadium. Then continue the ancient journey through the Roman Forum, the ruins of the Roman Empire which include the Senate House and Roman temples. This tour includes access to the Arena Floor, but does not include access to the Colosseum underground or upper levels. After the first half of the tour you will have an incredible evening on our Local Rome Food Tour in Trastevere, consisting of stops for authentic Roman pizza, cheeses, pastas, gelato and plenty of wine.  

  • A local English-speaking professional guide
  • Skip the line Colosseum tickets
  • Guided Tour of the Roman Forum
  • A maximum group size of 15
  • 4 carefully selected stops with multiple tastings including wine
  • Sit-down dinner at a local Roman restaurant

Colosseum Arena Floor 

Entering through the "Gate of Death" you will enter the Colosseum onto the reconstructed Arena Floor. Not accessible to the public, here you will feel like a VIP avoiding the long lines and crowds. You will also feel like a gladiator standing in the same spot that the great fighters battled to the death. After the Arena Floor we will also visit the first and second tiers where the richest Romans sat in the stadium which held 60,000. 

Guided Roman Forum Tour

Ancient Rome was a bustling marketplace with temples, shops and political entities. The Roman Forum had many similarities with downtowns today. Your guide will explain how these ruins used to stand as the center of the western world. After experiencing gladiator life, you will be ready for some amazing food and wine on the Local Rome Food Tour in Trastevere.

Roman Bakery and Pizza

For centuries Romans have been baking in wood fired ovens creating incredible breads and pizzas. The most common pizza in Rome, pizza bianca is served without cheese or sauce. A cousin of foccacia, these olive oil flatbreads are enjoyed for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After your visit to a Roman forno you will have a new appreciation and definition of pizza. 

Roman Street Food

A perfect example of "cibo del popolo" here you will try some of Rome's great street food. Simple and delicious, the fried fish at Dar Filettaro is a representation of its neighborhood and the culinary tradition of the city. 

An Authentic Roman Restaurant

Romans are very proud of their food and especially proud of their pasta. Here you will join us for a sit down dinner including a selection of traditional Roman pastas. Paired with fine Italian wines, after dinner you will cleanse your palate with limoncello. 

The Best Organic Gelato in Trastevere

Dinner in Rome is not complete without a cup of delicious gelato. With flavors like pistachio, chocolate, straciatella and even mango there is a perfect gelato for everyone. 

There is plenty of food to fill up even the above average eater on this tour. If you have food allergies or dietary restrictions, it’s important we know so we can do our best to accommodate them. Please email us immediately after you book and we will make notes so your guide knows. If you'd like to be certain before booking or have any questions, email us at [email protected].

Great combo!

I was going to book both of these tours anyway so I'm happy I got that extra discount. I'm not going to Rome until June but the customer service has been great. So excited to go to Italy!

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. During the food tour, you'll also be on your feet walking between tasting stops.

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 closes 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. 

Q: First things first, how much wine do we actually get?

A: We promise at least 3 glasses, but in many places, it is served by the carafe which is the typical family style way in Rome. In this case, you can probably drink more, but don't overdo it!

Q: What if I have food allergies, intolerances or other requirements?

A: Please contact us in advance so we can do our best to accommodate your needs. We will work with our collaborators to provide you an alternative when possible.

Q: Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?

A: Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Rome Food Tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with very little to no notice. In this situation, your guide will take you to another nearby eatery.
