Colosseum Underground, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill Tour

The tour starts next to Rome's Via Frangipane. Skipping all the queues, we'll start the tour by visiting the Gladiator Arena, where we'll spend 15 minutes learning all about the games, events and fights took place there for almost five centuries.

From there we'll descend to the underground tiers, the most enigmatic and special part of the Colosseum. For 20 minutes, we'll walk through areas where two millennia ago the gladiators prepared to fight. As we follow the footsteps of these ancient warriors, we'll discover the keys to this section's architecture. There we'll also learn how the elevators that gave access to the Arena worked and other parts that we dare not reveal before the tour.

Continuing on our guided tour of the Colosseum, we'll walk through the different upper tiers of this symbol of the Italian capital, declared a World Heritage Site.

Leaving the Colosseum behind, we'll pass by the Arch of Constantine and go to our next stop, the Roman Forum, one of the most important public spaces of the city in the imperial era. Here, we'll admire the incredible temples and buildings built by emperors such as Marcus Aurelius and Trajan.

We'll finish the route by visiting the Palatine, the hill that houses the archaeological sites of the ancient residences of the Roman emperors. Conveniently, it's also where you get the best views of the city!
