These tours are available on a very limited basis and as such we always recommend early booking! The booking system has changed for 2017 and bookings for April won't be able to be confirmed until the last week of March, with bookings for April until year end being confirmed in the first half of April. We'll put any affected orders on backorder-hold status and confirm them just as soon as we're able to. This will be done on a strictly first-come, first-served basis and, as ever, no charges will be made until your booking is confirmed.

Information and ticket booking for after dark tours of the Colosseum, Rome, Italy:

Colosseum & dungeons night tour

The capital of the ancient Roman Empire was at its most resplendent under a full moon, and your visit will be illuminated by your own 'private moon', the better to recreate the atmosphere of old.

This is likely the most evocative and magical way in which to experience the splendour and history of the Colosseum, with the tour lasting about 75 minutes and including an after-dark trip through the underground areas of this ancient monument. Also included is a downloadable 'Colosseum and Roman Forum' ebook guide in PDF, mobi and epub formats.

All is rendered especially majestic as a result of the special lighting and effects, not to mention the relative lack of visitors! The tour ends with an exhibition entitled 'Colosseum. An icon'

There are tours in English at 8.40 PM, 10.10 PM, in Italian at 20.20, 20.50 and 22.30 PM, and in Spanish at 22.40 PM.

Your guide on this evocative, night tour will bring the ancient Colosseum to life with interesting descriptions and stories about the monument, the workings of the Colosseum and the lives of the gladiators who fought and died here.
