Walk through the square, inside the arena to the roar of ferocious lions and fighting gladiators and along mysterious underground corridors where slaves prepared the shows. After your virtual experience, skip the line to enter the Colosseum. This iconic symbol of Rome was built to accommodate 50,000 to 75,000 spectators. Once you have explored the Colosseum, continue the cultural visit at the ruins of the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, where Rome was founded.

    Because we wanted a different experience this time we accessed a tour with virtual reality glasses. It was a perfect choice to better understand the grandeur of the place visited but also to better enter the "story of the place". An excellent idea that I hope to meet again at other tourist attractions such as the Romanian Forum and more. The guide who accompanied us took great care to explain what we have to do but also to make this interactive experience for children and teenagers. The little surprise at the end was welcome and will help us remember the place visited but also the wonderful experience at the Colosseum.

We got to tour the inner underground workings of the colosseum as well as the arena floor and all of the regular places as well. Such an amazing tour! Absolutely loved it.
