Explore more of the Colosseum than was previously possible on previous tour our Colosseum Underground experience Tour, which takes you to areas of this majestic structure not usually open to the public. With special access to the Colosseum underground, you can explore the tunnels where gladiators once prepared for fights and lions and tigers were caged before being hoisted onto the arena floor through trap doors using lifts and pulleys. Access to the Colosseum underground is only available on guided tours booked in advance. This extended Colosseum tour also takes you to the third-tier level of the Colosseum, as well as the arena floor - areas not visited on regular Colosseum tours. Of course we’ll also visit all the general access areas visited on our regular Colosseum tours, giving you a more rounded view of this ancient structure. After the Colosseum we’ll head onward to the Roman Forum and the “Via Sacra” or
“Sacred Way” which is the main path through the Forum that once sparkled with festivals and triumphal processions. It begins at the temple which houses the altar where Julius Caesar was
cremated. Listen as your guide points out all of this, plus moneylenders’ shops and the home of the famous Vestal Virgins, bringing these magnificent ruins to life. We finish our tour at the beginning, the Palatine Hill, where legend has it Remus and Romulus were found by the she -wolf, and where they went on to fight for the right to build their own city. Romulus won, making this exact spot where Rome was founded. Explore some of Rome’s oldest ruins, once decadent palaces and gardens, as well as some of the most beautiful views in the whole city. Using headsets for the duration of the tour, will make it more intimate and your expert, English-speaking guide will be easy to hear and interact with.
