Today a symbol of the Eternal City – and Italy – in the world, as well as a symbol of opulence, the Colosseum has been considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World, becoming a historical and archaeological treasure capable of reminding us of the greatness and the power of the Roman Empire.

So, if you are passionate about Imperial Rome and are visiting the Italian capital for the first time you can not miss the Colosseum. Through a Colosseum tour underground private you gain privileged access to sections of the Colosseum not available with a standard ticket and it will be an unforgettable experience. As well as visiting the Colosseum in its entirety, this tour will also take you to the ruins of the Roman Forum and the Palatine. Exploring the most famous amphitheater in the world allows you to discover how Roman citizens lived in ancient Rome.
Learn about the history of the Colosseum and retrace the vestiges and lust of the past
Also known as Flavian Amphitheater, this imposing building – the largest amphitheater in the world – in 1980 has been declared a World Heritage Site together with the entire historic center of Rome within the city walls in their widest extension.
The Colosseum was once the place where gladiator fights, wild animal hunts, and even public executions took place but in 438 AD began its decline when Emperor Valentinian III banned gladiatorial games. During the Middle Ages, the Colosseum was used for different purposes, as a place for craftsmen’s workshops, an animal hospital, and even housing. It is only recently that a meticulous work of archaeological excavations and renovation has shed light on its original functions.
The archaeological site of the Colosseum is very vast and includes several areas. The general area is open to anyone with a regular ticket, while the arena and the underground are only accessible with a licensed guide.
Through a guided tour you can access the arena and underground passages, enter the chambers and explore the subterranean area. Have a memorable experience in the company of your knowledgeable guide that will allow you to see behind the scenes where wild animals waited to enter the hall where they fought gladiators. In the arena, which you can only see from above, the gladiators were engaged in fighting, while descending into the bowels of the structure you can see the intricate architecture that brought the gladiators and the animals into the arena.
