These are our own exclusive tours - using fully qualified local guides and lasting around 3 hours - and they offer an emotional and informed immersion in the splendour of Ancient Rome. Our English speaking guides will bring the Roman Empire to life and their passion will illuminate aspects of Roman history that would ordinarily pass you by. The tour take in the Colosseum, the Colosseum dungeons and the floor of the arena, and a tour of the nearby Roman Forum.
It's becoming harder to arrange tours of the Colosseum - regulations are ever-changing - and this exclusive tour is becoming an increasingly popular option. The price reflects the small group size (not exceeding 12 people), but you are getting skip-the-queue special access to the 'restricted' areas of the Colosseum - the underground areas, the arena floor as well as a full exploration of the Forum.
The running order of the tour may well begin with the Forum and then the Colosseum, or vice-versa - much depends on other groups and level of visitors.
This tour lasts approximately 3 hours and will end at the Roman Forum or at the Colosseum (depending on where it started).
* Regulation changes at the Colosseum mean that for the tour sections covering the lower levels you'll be temporarily joining a larger group where the explanations will be given by internal staff.
