What a spectacular tour with the most passionate tour guide Anton
Amber, Dani, Kelvin & Caitie from Amsterdam did the evening underground Colosseum Tour on Saturday 2 November, with more than one glass of prosecco, it was a memorable tour. Anton our tour guide spoke so passionately about the Roman history and described the Colosseum in so much detail during the Roman times that it felt like we were actually there. Anton had an awesome sense of humor too. We also got to see the backstage (underground) and other parts of the Colosseum that the day time tours don't get to see. It was worth with every penny. Thank you Anton for this spectacular tour. If you are ever in Amsterdam let us know :)

Back stage view of the colosseum
Sep 2019
Santos provided a great quantity of Prosecco to relax the group in anticipation of exploring the coliseum.
He went into great detail describing the history and background of this place.
We were then handed over to staff inside who took us on most levels to see the inside area.
Although under the moon was a clue I didn’t realise just how dark it was and difficult to see many aspects of the arena and missing good opportunities to take exclusive photos.
There were mini videos and auditory exhibits describing events and you were able to go down to the bottom gladiator/ slave/ animal area as.well.
It took in all about 2 hours for €80,s each

Great tour!
We had such a great time during our tour. Santos kicked it off with Prosecco and he made the tour very informative, interactive and entertaining. It was also great to beat the heat, crowds and no lines at night. Would 100% recommend!

We picked this tour so we could visit under the Colosseum and we weren’t disappointed! Also the views with the sky at sunset were beautiful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the tour. Would definitely recommend!

Great tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
Due to thunder and heavy rain the tour was cancelled. We were offered either a refund or the same tour any other time. So we came back the next evening and received a great deal of information from Santos, one of the Explore Italy tour guides. He was a great storyteller and his italian accent made his stories even livelier. In fact, he was much more interesting to listen to than the female guide who took over the moment we stepped into the Colosseum. Unfortunately for us, Santos was not allowed to guide the tour inside the Colosseum, for the museum has its own guides who are the only ones allowed to give tours within the Colosseum.
Nevertheless, the tour all together was a great way of getting to know about the Colosseum and I can definitely recommend Explore Italy to book it with. Ask when Santos is on duty! You won’t regret it.

Colosseum After Dark tour

Was a decent tour. Didn t really do much underground. Was a little disappointed that you only got to see o e small part for 10 minutes. Nice that there were no crowds. But enjoyed the longer day tour that included the forum etc. better

Recommend tour- without the crowds of tourist.
Aug 2019
This tour is basically a two part tour - we were amazed on everything our tour guide Anton told us before our tour of the colosseum.
He was VERY knowledgeable and kept us intrigued through the first half of the tour.
The second half of the tour was in the actual colosseum and just being inside and seeing things made up for the rushed walk through with Tour guide that told us a lot of what we already learned from Anton.
If you don’t want to wait in lines with a lot of tourist specially in the heat - this is the way to go!!!

2 part tour: a chat overlooking the Colosseum (a miss) and then tour of the actual attraction (a hit!)
Aug 2019 • Couples
The tour of the Colosseum and the guide were excellent: informative and engaging, and highly recommended. It was a stunning tour, with no crowds and the cool night air.

However, beforehand the meeting at the office to enjoy a Prosecco in a room packed with strangers (and have the initial guide provide a seemingly too long presentation with the venue in the background) was not up to the same standard: rambling and frankly left you anxious for the main tour to start (and then regretful that you did not spend more time at the actual venue).

Definitely take in the venue, but try and skip the fluff.
