Enjoy a 1.5 hour express small group tour of the Colosseum with fast track entrance onto the arena through the Gladiator Entrance! Get ready to experience the Colosseum like never before.
You will meet your enthusiastic guide and group (max 24 participants but average in off-peak times is smaller) in our office near the Colosseum. In our office you will be given earpieces to ensure you can clearly hear your guide throughout the tour, even if you wander out of earshot to take that perfect photo! After check in, our licensed and entertaining guide will lead your group out of our office and up towards the Colosseum, where you will be caught up to speed with the history of Ancient Rome by our engaging guide.
Once you arrive at the Colosseum you will walk straight past the long ticket line, as well as the main entrance. Instead, you will head to a special reserved fast track entrance. Here you will enter the Colosseum like true VIPs. This is the so-called Gladiator Entrance, as it was once the very entrance from which the gladiator's entered the Colosseum to the roars of the crowd, as they prepared to begin their infamous combats. You will enter the Colosseum directly onto the arena stage, the quickest way to enter the Colosseum! This is a once in a lifetime experience, as the arena of the Colosseum is usually off-bounds to the general public.
There couldn't be a more special place from which to listen to your guide's intriguing commentary on the Colosseum and Ancient Rome. Of course our Colosseum Express Tour also includes a visit to the main two rings of the Colosseum. From here you will continue to learn all about the lives of the Emperors, nobles, Gladiators, everyday Romans and slaves that all congregated in the huge amphitheater of entertainment that is the Colosseum. In just 1.5 hours you will learn everything you've ever needed to know about the Colosseum. Do you have a burning question you've always wanted to ask about the Colosseum or Ancient Rome? Group participation is encouraged on our Arena Entrance Colosseum Express Tour. We want to make sure this small group Colosseum tour is interactive for everybody, so go ahead an ask! Your guide will be delighted to answer you.
