Rome Small Group Walking Tour of Ancient Rome, the Colosseum and the underground of the Colosseum with a limit of 12 pax. No standing-in-line to enter!  Our small-group tours have a maximum of 12 participants, unlike our competitors who may allow as many as 25 people in a group, making our tours more intimate and quite like a private tour! Private tours for your group or family are also available for the same tour with your own private guide.

Join a shared tour of Ancient Rome and enjoy exclusive VIP access to the Underground of the Colosseum. This is not normally offered with the standard Colosseum tour.

Discover the secrets to the groundbreaking trap doors of the arena floor, from which ravenous animals would suddenly appear and where the bodies of the slain would vanish from the light of day.

Descend into the depths of the Colosseum and wander its complex of underground tunnels, uncovering the backstage magic used to create epic gladiator clashes and battle reenactments. Both on the sand of the arena and – when the arena was flooded to recreate naval battles – on water.

Then move onto ‘downtown’ Ancient Rome, the Roman Forum. A guided visit of the Forum is necessary as the site can be confusing to untrained eyes. Yet with a guide discover where Julius Caesar was cremated or where the Vestal Virgins kept their burning flame for the Goddess Vesta. The forum offers glorious views of the Palatine Hill, a site even older than the Forum and where Romulus and Remus founded Rome.

Tour Details

Colosseum Security: N.B You need to bring a valid ID or a photocopy to enter the Colosseum. You will be unable to enter without it and no refund will be granted. With the modern era and threats to areas that are highly populated, the security at the Colosseum has stepped up measures to protect its visitors and the monument. As of now, the Security control at the Colosseum is NOT allowing liquids and creams inside the monument. The following items have been stopped by the Security and forced to be thrown away: No large back packs, Water Spray bottles. We recommend that people visiting the Colosseum, do not bring these items on their tour when going inside the Colosseum.

We would like to remind you that the Underground tickets no longer include the Upper 3rd Ring. The areas included are the Underground and the Arena Floor only.
