Forget about the crowds and join our guide and a small group along the magic Ruins of the Roman Forum at night, inside the Dungeons of the Colosseum and get on the Arena, where the Gladiators made their appearance before the fights!
Experience the magic of the Colosseum at night and visit the Colosseum Undergrounds.
If you are in Rome from April through October you can enjoy a truly unique experience and make your visit of the Colosseum an unforgettable one. If you want to avoid the heat and the crowd of tourists and live a VIP experience choose our Colosseum Under the Moon Tour. You will admire the Amphitheater under the light of the moon: it will be just you and your group (maximum 25 people) inside the Colosseum!
The starting point of this 2 hours unique experience is at our office near the Colosseum, where you will be greeted with a welcome drink and snacks. You will then be introduced to your guide, be handed a headset and you will start your walking tour. First you will stroll along Imperial Forum Street, where on both sides of the road you will admire stunning ancient Roman ruins, illuminated by romantic lights. You will then reach Venice Square with the majestic white Monument to Victor Emmanuel II, also known as “Vittoriano” and, by most foreigners, as “The Wedding Cake” or the “Typewriter”. Five more minutes and you will see the nearby Capitol Hill, now headquarters of the Mayor of Rome. Afterwards, you will walk all the way back and finally enter the Colosseum, enjoying a relaxing 45 minutes visit away from the daily crowd. You will learn all about the history of the Colosseum and about gladiator combats that used to take place inside. During the tour you will be able to set foot in areas usually closed to the public, like the Arena and the Dungeons, where gladiators and wild beasts were held during the events. Your group will listen to their guide sharing amazing anecdotes about the mind-blowing history of this center of Ancient Roman entertainment, the histories of gladiators and which kind of beasts were brought inside to combat. You will really feel as though you are there among the gladiators, lions and emperors!
