A chance to enjoy areas not normally accessible to the public in the company of an experienced guide. This night walking tour lasts about two hours and 15 minutes, with varying start times from 7.00 PM to 9.10 PM, and includes major sights such as the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Imperial forums. Highlights include:
This atmospheric tour starts at Trajan's Column, exploring the surrounding area including the monumental facade of the Vittoriano monument, the Piazza Venezia and the Via dei Fori Imperiali. You'll visit the Imperial and Roman Forums - the heart of political, religious and public life in ancient Rome - and enjoy a wonderful view of the Palatine Hill before proceeding to the Colosseum. Please note that the tour will provide an external view of the Forums and Palatine Hill, it doesn't include entrance to these locations.
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. Everything is much cooler and more comfortable at night and you'll have a unique opportunity to experience these monuments in the dusk light and sunset.
The tour includes your experienced, English-speaking guide, headphones and special priority access to the Colosseum in a tour of no more than 25 people. Please note that everyone, with the exception of children under the age of one, is required to have a ticket - this is the policy of the local authorities.
This is a full 'skip-the-queue' ticket.
The tour lasts approximately 2 hours 15 minutes.
You will be part of a group tour that typically numbers under 25 people.
You'll be meeting close to the Colosseum, at Trajan's Column.
The dungeon areas are uneven and largely unpaved and as such this tour is not suited for wheelchair users or persons of markedly reduced mobility.
You may use a copy of your voucher on a mobile device to gain admittance.
The date and time of your visit cannot be modified so please be sure to arrive on time - it's recommended that you're there at least 15 to 20 minutes before start time.
