Colosseum Arena Floor Tickets

Avoid the crowds as you walk out onto the most sought after restricted area of the Colosseum, not available to regular Colosseum ticket holders - the Arena Floor. Travel back in time as you trace the footsteps of gladiators. Visit the opening to the reconstructed trap door and let your imagination go wild, as your guide describes the types of wild animals that also once contributed to the Colosseum's popularity and significance in ancient Roman society.

Roman Colosseum History

After the Arena Floor, go on a journey to the Colosseum's first and second levels. See where Emperors sat and learn the rules of the gladiatorial games for both competitors and spectators. Learn why the ancient amphitheater was named the Colosseum and more.  After spending a total of 1.5 hours inside of the Colosseum, begin your guided Roman Forum tour.

Guided Roman Forum Tour

This Colosseum Arena Floor tour includes Roman Forum tickets and a guided tour of the ruins inside. This area, also referred to as the "Ancient Downtown", is a Roman archaeological site that was once the location of downtown Ancient Rome. Visit some of the most famous Roman Forum buildings, including the Temple of Julius Caesar, Arch of Titus, the Roman Senate House and more. Relive ancient history as you walk down the same roads taken by famous Roman Emperors and philosophers.

Climb Palatine Hill 

When your Colosseum Arena Floor with Roman Forum tour concludes, you are free to wander around on your own. Climb the Palatine Hill and take in the views over Circus Maximus, relax in the Farnese Gardens, or simply perch on an ancient piece of marble and take in the beautiful surroundings. By the end of the tour, leave the Colosseum and Forum with a camera full of incredible pictures of the Colosseum and a mind full of knowledge about life in ancient Roman.

Great Tour!

We booked pretty last minute but it was jot a problem at all. Loretta was an outstanding guide, very knowledgeable and funny, joking with us the entire time. She was always considerate of the heat and people needing a rest break which was very kind. The communication with the company was great, down to how to find the meeting place and updating us with changes in the meeting time. We really enjoyed our colosseum tour and the service from the roman guy company. Thanks Loretta!!

Amazing Colosseum and Forum Tour

Being able to visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum with such an experienced and thoughtful guide was a real treat. While getting into the Forum took a little longer than necessary because of extra Covid-19 controls, our guide added a bonus visit to the lookout point over the Palatine Hill to compensate for the wait. This was a definite highlight of an amazing tour!

AWESOME experience!!

You MUST book this company for your tours in Rome. Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful and we couldn’t ask for more. She was detailed, knowledgeable, entertaining, and personable. I’m writing this review late and unfortunately can’t remember her name but our tour was of the Colosseum at 1300 on Dec 4th. Again, she was excellent!!!

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.

What if the Arena Floor is Closed?

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.

What if I'm not sure about my mobility?

If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Private Colosseum Tour.

Does my tour still run if it rains?

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.
