The Colosseum is without any doubt the first place that has to be visited in Rome, as well as one of the main attractions in the city. Built in 80AD, this almost two thousand years old monument was the largest amphitheater of ancient Rome. Today is one of the symbols of Rome and Italy in the world.
Inside the Colosseum were held gladiator fights, bloody battles between men and wild beasts, and duels between slaves; but recent discoveries show that it was possible to flood the arena, in order to stage authentic naval battles: a clear sign that the Colosseum was at the forefront of architecture and technology.
Today, the Colosseum is one of the most visited archaeological sites in Italy and throughout the world. Visiting this outstanding monument is a unique opportunity to go back in time: a must-see for all tourists who visit Rome for the first time, but also for those who think they already know the city.
You can visit the Colosseum through guided tours for groups and small groups, or, for a truly intimate and unforgettable eXPerience, also through a private tour that will make you your trip to Rome unforgettable. These guided tours also give you access to the archaeological area of the Roman Forum, which will give you a glimpse of the opulence of ancient Rome.
