You will meet your guide at our office in Via della Polveriera nr.8 in Rome.
Being one of the most visited monuments in the world, there are regularly long ticket lines at the Colosseum. By joining our Early Morning Colosseum Tour we will provide you with 'skip the line' entrance tickets, so the group can head straight inside and not waste time standing around in ticket lines.
As you walk inside the Colosseum, you will begin to feel the magnitude of where you are. Exploring the ground floor level and up to the second tier, your guide will recreate the past, with stories of epic battles, painting pictures in your mind, bringing to life the walls that surround you.
Learn about the types of games and ferocious battles that the Romans enjoyed the most. See where the emperor would be perched, high above the arena floor, ready to decide the fate of another gladiator as he stood before a roaring Roman crowd. Along with providing you with expert knowledge, your guide will also point out the best places to capture that perfect picture during your tour, as you tour the circumference of the Colosseum.
The tour will consist of 2 separate parts, 1 hour in the Colosseum & 1 hour in the Roman Forum and Palatine hill area.
