These incredibly popular - understandably so - tours are back for 2019, running from the 22nd of April right through until the first week of January 2020. Demand always outsrips supply, and unless you book well in advance you're likely to be disappointed. For now we know that the tour will be even more spectacular, enriched by a multimedia experience entitled 'Il sogno del Gladiatore' - the Gladiator's dream, but detail is still thin on the ground - we'll update here as soon as things are clearer. Note that the realistic content means that children under 6 are not allowed to join these tours.
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!

Please note that in the case of bad weather the tours may not be able to go ahead, especially in winter months. You should always show up for the tour as decisions are often made at the eleventh hour and you would not want to miss out!
