Visit the largest Roman amphitheater in the world on this guided tour of the Colosseum. An absolute must if you're in the Italian capital!


We'll start our guided tour of the Colosseum next to the Colosseo metro station, where we'll meet at the indicated time at the Via dei Fori Imperiali exit.

After a brief introduction, we'll enter the famous Colosseum of Rome. This imposing monument was inaugurated in 80 A.D. under the name of the Flavian Amphitheater during the reign of Emperor Titus.

During the visit, we'll walk through part of the stands of this colossal public entertainment arena. With a capacity for up to 50,000 spectators, it comes as no surprise that this is the largest Roman amphitheater in the world!

We'll continue our guided tour of the Colosseum admiring the arena area from the stands. This is where gladiators fought for their lives in bloody fights for the entertainment of hundreds of thousands of people.

The Flavian Amphitheater didn't just host gladiator fights, however. During the tour of the Colosseum, we'll also discover what other spectacles were held at this site, declared one of the 7 Wonders of the Modern World.

Following a 1.5-hour tour, we'll conclude the visit outside the Colosseum of Rome, where you can have your photo taken in front of one of the most famous monuments in Italy.
