Tour description

Enjoy an intimate night visit of the Colosseum with VIP direct access. Explore the monument without amy queues or crowds for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Stand on the arena floor as you look up to see the world's most famous amphitheater, on the spot where gladiators once fought to the death in pursuit of freedom and glory. Descend alongside your small group into the Colosseum Underground to discover the many secrets and mechanisms below the floor stage.

Your guide will meet you in Largo di Torre Argentina to embark on a journey to discover the history of Rome while the city is bathed in a magical and relaxed evening atmosphere. Away from the daytime tourism hustle and bustle, our expert guide will enliven your evening, bringing to life the sights you see with vivid accounts of their history and secrets. We start by marvelling at the temples of Pompey's Theatre in Largo di Torre Argentina where Julius Caesar was assassinated, across the little-known narrow passages of the ancient city where time has frozen, onto the Capitoline Hill, one of the famous seven hills of Rome. 

Delight in a night view of the Roman Forum, the pulsating political and economic heart of ancient Rome, to the Imperial Forums, where Trajan's Column and the Temple of Mars the Avenger in the Forum of Augustus still stand strong and mighty against the passing of time and empires.

The tour will conclude this amazing journey with the Rome’s most iconic site: the Colosseum! We’ll have direct access to the Arena to live for some moments the gladiators' view and also descend into the Underground of the Colosseum to understand the mechanisms of this majestic arena where gladiators and beasts fought against each other for survival, eternal glory, and the entertainment of the masses.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the Colosseum without masses of tourists and have a truly memorable experience in Rome. 

**** Optional Pizza Making Class ****

Why not to have dinner before starting the Colosseum Underground tour by making your own pizza and eating it in a stunning 17th-century palace? For a small additional fee of 40€ per person you will learn how to make pizza and enjoy eating it in a sit-down dinner before the tour. 

Our pizzaiolo (our expert pizza Chef) will teach you all the tricks of the trade to make a scrumptious pizza. If you have a pizza craving and prefer to start the tour with a full belly, why not joining us to learn how to prepare a perfect Roman pizza? 

You’ll take your pizza class in a state-of-the-art professional designer kitchen which is set in a gorgeous seventeenth-century Roman palace located right in the middle of the Historic Centre, behind Piazza Navona.

Here, you’ll learn hands-on the from-scratch method for making the perfect dough. Then, stretch out the dough; pick your own toppings from an array of seasonal ingredients; pop your pizza in the oven; and indulge in that gorgeous cooking aroma! When your pizza is ready, time to take it out, sit down and tuck in. Finishing it off, naturally, with a complimentary Italian dessert.

Places for this exclusive tour+class are limited and sell out quickly, so book as soon as possible to give yourself a once-in-a-lifetime culinary and art experience and enjoy Rome at its fullest!
