Gladiator's Glory 

Vip Colosseum Tour 

 

When most people think of the Colosseum, they think of gladiators and the roaring bloodthirsty crowds cheering at the sight of another’s defeat, while a great emperor watched intently as his people are entertained. This is why we’ve developed a tour to take you right into the heart of the Colosseum, the arena, to stand in the place of a Gladiator’s Glory. 

 

On this tour, you will be taken through the Gladiator’s Gate, a private access back entrance. From there, you will be led straight to the reconstructed arena floor where you will get a 360-degree view of one of the oldest, and best preserved sports stadiums in history. This area is reserved only for select tours and times, so it is a great opportunity to leave the crowds behind and experience the grandeur of the Colosseum without any distractions. 

 

Because this is a special access area, a photo ID or passport is REQUIRED in order to gain entry into the arena. It is ESSENTIAL to remember this. Without documents you risk holding up the group and missing the focal point of this tour. 

 

Once inside our expert guide, will provide you with tales of the legendary blood sports filled with victory and loss, the death sentences, and the historical figures who have stepped into this great stadium. 

 

After you’ve left the arena, you will also explore the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill (the downtown of ancient Rome) to get a deeper understanding of this enormous empire. In the Forum, you will see all of the palaces, government buildings, temples and monuments that were at the center of this great nation. You will then complete the tour at Palatine Hill, where you will witness the actual birthplace of Rome, and learn of the elements of its culture that still exist today.
