  • Get a gladiator's-eye view of the Colosseum as you stalk the arena's floor like the warriors and entertainers of old

Description

Sink your sword into the very best of Rome with this triple bill of unmissable culture! Get a gladiator's-eye view of the iconic arena and explore areas that are off-limits to the general public. Then get to the heart of ancient Rome at the Forum, and see where it all began at the Palatine Hill.

One of the most jaw-dropping wonders of the ancient world, the Colosseum in Rome is an absolute must-see during any visit to the Eternal City. With this ticket, you’ll step into the sandals of a gladiator, on a once-in-a-lifetime visit of the bloodstained arena floor.

Feel the shivers creep down your spine as you walk across the age-old amphitheatre, where warriors and wild animals once fought to the death before the Roman public. Your ticket includes priority entrance and access to areas most people don’t get to see.

After exploring the Colosseum, choose from four walking routes that will enrich your knowledge of ancient Rome. Each path offers a unique glimpse into the ancient city, including sites like the square of the Roman Forum, the Via Sacra, and the southern slopes of the Palatine Hill. Routes takes from 30 minutes to two hours and 30 minutes.
