Tour description

If you are looking for a private Colosseum tour with a slightly different itinerary to the norm, why not choose our Colosseum and Underground Rome private tour? With this 3-hour walking tour you will be assigned an engaging private guide who is an archaeologist or expert in Ancient Rome. Together with your private guide you will visit the incredible and impressive archaeological sites of Underground Rome.

As this is a Colosseum tour, you will meet your enthusiastic guide at the mind-blowing ancient amphitheater to start your private tour. You will enter inside using pre-booked access as your private guide explains the uses of the Colosseum in Ancient Rome and the prominent place it held in the everyday life of people from all social backgrounds.

Next you can continue to learn about the gladiators as you walk up to the Ludus Magnus Gladiator Arena, where the gladiators used to train. Alternatively you can go further in depth into day to day life in Ancient Rome with a panoramic tour from outside of the ruins of the Roman Forum.

Next you will reach the underground portion of your tour, as your guide leads you inside St Clemente’s Basilica. Built on three levels, with undergrounds dating back to the 1st century (an ancient Roman house), 2nd century (a Pagan school dedicated to the god Mithra) and 4th century (an Early Christian Basilica), St Clemente’s Basilica is truly unique. On the ground level, you will visit the present basilica where you can admire stunning golden mosaics. Your Colosseum and Underground Rome Private tour will be a wonderful way to explore the treasures of Ancient Rome and its history, all the time in the safe hands of an entertaining and knowledgeable guide.
