The information on this page relates to Tickitaly's semi-private tours of the Colosseum and dungeons (plus the Roman Forum). These tours last 3 hours and have the same format (Colosseum, dungeons, Roman Forum) as our group tours on this page ... they differ only in that they are mainly* private tours, offering you and your party a privileged and dedicated tour. These are exclusive products, and the price reflects this.
* 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.
PLEASE NOTE: we do not offer refunds if the underground areas are closed (for security reasons or due to flooding after heavy rain). Your guide will, nonetheless, give a full explanation and history of the subterranean zones.
The underground - ipogei, hypogeum - areas are what made possible the long and spectacular days of the Colosseum in all their gore and glory - the subterranean backstage, as it were, where slaves worked, animals (read lions, tigers, hyenas and bears) were stored and gladiators rested, ate and offered up their prayers. They were completely filled in during the 5th century AD and as a result show a remarkable state of preservation.
Underground and above-ground, not for decades has it been possible for the visitor to achieve such a full sense of the scale and spectacular that is the Roman Colosseum.
