Seeing the Colosseum is a once in a lifetime thing and the best way to do it is on an intimate private tour in Rome; you will feel like travelling through time.

Admire the magnificent Colosseum

Witness the recently restored Arena and Underground rooms and allow yourself to become immersed in the forgotten world of the gladiatorial games. Step through Porta Libitinaria and visit everything at your own pace and take the time to admire these long-standing pieces of history that will continue to dazzle generations to come. Imagine the carnage that unfolded here thousands of years before and listen to the crowds roaring as the beasts were released and the gladiators fought to the death.

Step into the Arena

The Arena is one of the absolute highlights of this private tour, with thousands upon thousands of people waiting to experience this impressive Italian location. It is hard to believe that you will have access to the very place where slaves were engaged in gladiatorial fights to the death with hungry, enraged beasts or with other gladiators, to the delight of the audience, who expected a bloodbath. Step into the Arena and picture the years of human suffering that took place in this outdoor theatre of monumental proportions. 

Explore the Underground rooms of the Colosseum

The most impressive part of this private tour is yet to come in the Underground rooms. Not nearly as well-known or as popular as the Arena, but infinitely more fascinating, the Underground of the Colosseum is where the slaves were kept, as well as the animals, and where they were prepared to fight. This is where they waited for their turn to step into the Arena and where all the behind the scenes action took place. There is so much unknown to be discovered in these underground spaces, and as you descend into the Underground Colosseum, you will feel like you are entering a past world ready to be explored on this intimate experience.
