Full description
The Colosseum is easily the most well-known of all Rome’s ancient architectural marvels. Its massive, towering walls still stand largely intact after 19 centuries, and its symmetrically arranged archways are a constant reminder of the orderly nature of Roman society. Benefit from fast track entry and learn fascinating stories from your expert local guide. Enter the Colosseum through its secret back door, called the “Gate of Death” because it was used to take out of the arena the ones who failed in battle. From there, go straight onto a wooden reconstruction of the original arena floor. From the center of the Colosseum, enjoy fantastic views over the tiered seating of the monument. There will be plenty of space to move around and take some insta-worthy pictures. Discover the best of the Eternal City and continue your adventure to the Roman Forum, a place that was once the political heart of ancient Rome. Visit the ruins of the Temple of Caesar, the Senate and many other important buildings to fully understand the daily life of the Roman citizen. You will end up this fascinating tour with spectacular views from the top of the Palatine Hill.

The first guide was amazing and kind. The second guide was great. Remember that this is a two part tour. The coliseum was long and amazing. We cut the second part of the tour short due to hunger and being tired. We weren’t ready for part two of the tour. Bring snacks and water. The check in can be tricky because it’s up the hill from the train station. Your map will probably land you at the bottom of the hill.

The visit to the Colosseum and the forum was a real pleasure. The perfectly French speaking guide was very pleasant and interesting. Be careful, however, we were originally told to meet at 4:45 p.m., brought forward the day before at 4:00 p.m. and fortunately since the forum closes at 6.30 p.m. and we would not have had time to finish our visit in this case.

La visita guiada al coliseo es un must para realmente entender la historia. El foro Romano, desde mi punto de vista no tiene el mismo interés.
