How to discover the most iconic monument in Rome
The influence of Rome can still be felt throughout the western world – in government, engineering, architecture, language, and literature. That’s why a trip to the Eternal City is a unique opportunity to experience if you want to go back in time. With its ancient monuments and rich historical past, the Italian capital is a wonderful city to visit at least once in a lifetime. And what is the thing that most represents it? Imposing and sumptuous, the Colosseum attracts many travelers every day. It is therefore a must in Rome, being the most incredible work and testimony of the Roman Empire. Walks Inside Rome allows you to discover the most iconic monument of the Eternal City through skip-the-line Colosseum tours.
Journey back in time to the glorious days of a great empire
Like the Vatican, the Colosseum is an essential stop once in Rome. An emblematic monument and symbol of the city, also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, it is considered one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world. It was the largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire specially designed by the emperors to entertain the people. Here the Romans used to go there to enjoy the spectacle of gladiators fighting, hunting wild beasts, and other cruel games. Nowadays, this huge building is one of the best preserved. While part of the Colosseum has not withstood the test of time, you can still contemplate its structure as well as the underground passages where animals and fighters were locked up before they entered the scene. This amphitheater remains remarkably intact 2000 years later.
Visiting the Colosseum with an expert local guide gives you privileged access, skipping the line at the main public entrance, to access those areas that were once the prerogative of gladiators for their battles. You will explore and learn more about the history of the most famous monument in Rome. Your seasoned guide will enthusiastically tell you stories and anecdotes about the men who fought in the arenas and the emperors who ruled them.
To visit the Colosseum, the archaeological area of the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill you can not improvise. All year round there are crowds of visitors and endless lines to enter. The only way to avoid grueling waits that can last for hours is to have priority access.
