If you've ever tried to defeat a rampaging tiger with a trident, you'll sympathize with the daily grind of ancient Rome. If not, join this immersive Colosseum guided tour to time-travel back to the gory glory days of the once-mighty empire. You'll also visit the Roman Forum.

Skip the long lines and get guided through Rome's iconic amphitheater, see its old political center, and learn about the mythical hill upon which the city was founded.

Are you not entertained?

Few places in the world are as haunting and awe-inspiring as the Colosseum in Rome. Unsurprisingly, few places have such long queues to get in! Give a thumbs down to waiting around, and skip past the grumbling lines like a happy gladiator who just won their freedom.

This Colosseum guided tour will paint a vivid picture of the violent history held within the ancient walls as you wander the arena floor. See the VIP section where Caesar sat, the cheaper seats where baying crowds begged for bloodshed, and the trapdoors through which wild animals were raised into the arena.

The odyssey continues with a visit to the spectacular ruins of the Roman Forum – the hub of ancient Rome. Here's where rousing political speeches were made, criminals were sentenced, goods were traded, and where angry mobs assembled.
