tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

If you like to make an entrance then this is the Colosseum guided tour for you! A fully guided tour of the Roman Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill archaeological area, it sees you enter the Colosseum via the Gladiator's Gate and emerge directly onto the sand-covered arena floor, a section of the Colosseum that is ordinarily closed to visitors.

The tours lasts around three hours and is fully guided, fully skip-the-queue - in fact it's an 'express' entry as the Gladiator's Gate is not used for standard Colosseum access. As well as the restricted battle-floor area, you'll also see the 'Cross' area, the spot where Rome's Good Friday celebrations are initiated each year.

  • Disposable single-use gloves must be worn at all times.
  • Hands (or gloves) must be cleaned with a disinfectant gel on entry.
  • Your temperature (which will be measured on entry) must not be above 37.5°C.
  • Visitors must maintain a social distance of 1.8m at all times.
