    Colosseum
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Your tour starts steps away from the Colosseum, where you’ll meet your guide, a Roman history enthusiast. After an introductory tour of the structure from outside you will proceed to the skip the line privileged access. Once inside, begin below ground to explore the Colosseum’s tunnels, chambers and pits. This section of the Colosseum is restricted to the public and only allows a select number of visitors each day, so enjoy this exclusive chance to see more than most people do. Here you will be able to admire the engineering of the 88 elevators that brought to life Rome's best spectacle. Next you will head to the arena floor. Most visitors are restricted to walk only around the edge, but you have access to walk on the floor itself, standing on the same spot where the battles took place. After the tour of the Colosseum is over you will be left inside to enjoy some free time and really take in the energy of this world wonder. Once outside, if you wish to continue visiting the nearby areas, home of Ancient Rome, on your own, our tickets allow you to access the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum areas, and wander at your own pace.

Did a tour with Roberto/crown tours. Roberto was fantastic in sharing his passion & picking the highlights in a confusing Forum Romanum & gave us great knowledge nuggets while engaging us through the story + making it all alive with visual storyyelling. Absolutely loved it, would do again & will recommend to friends.

Our tour included underground in the Collosseum led by a Collosseum guide, followed by a guided walk overview of the Forum led by Lumi of Crown Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed both parts. Our guides were quite knowledgeable, and though we’d visited the Collosseum before above ground, the underground tour gave us access to emerging archeological research. The visit to and discussion of the working model of the wooden lift that sent animals to the surface was particularly enlightening. Along the Forum, Lumi provided a fresh take on history and the Palatine, the transition after Nero leading to the burying of the Domus Aurea, covering over its artificial lake for the construction of the Collosseum. Fascinating, particularly as we have a tour of the new excavations of the Domus Aurea the following day. We would certainly take a tour again with Crown Tours.

We had a great tour with Mircea today, he gave a lot of insight into the historical sites visited, the tour itself was a pleasant 2.5 hours with many loo breaks along the way, and even fountains for water refills. Definitely worth the money - so much more informative and interesting than you could do by yourself. Mircea was a very pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide - definitely recommend him. Go Crown Tours!

This tour was highly informative and it was really cool to go into the underground areas. Our guide (Mircea I believe his name was?) was awesome, and really knows his history. Totally worth the time and money!

It started off well. The meeting point was easy enough to find and an extra worker from Crown Tours was at the lower entrance of the station who guided us to the meeting point at the upper entrance.

The colosseum tour was guided by a very funny and enthusiastic Italian guide who seems to enjoy his job and made everyone laugh but he was a little difficult to understand sometimes, the tour felt quite rushed and I didn't find it that interesting. The underground section of the tour was extremely limited and not really worth the hype in my opinion.

At the end of the tour he told us to meet at the colosseum exit in 20 minutes for the next tour and then left us. We were all very confused as none of us had realised the tour continued to Palatine Hill. In addition I found 20 minutes to be a bit limited and would have liked a little more time between tours to look around at the colosseum.

After regrouping with our still confused tour group who were still unsure if there was a second part to the tour we found out that yes indeed we were to continue to Palatine Hill. Then there was a whole lot more confusion as we were passed from guide to guide to guide. We had no idea what was going on and who we were supposed to follow. We ended up making friends with other people in the group just because we were super confused and were trying to figure out what was going on.

The saving grace of the day was the tour at Palatine Hill. We had a wonderful guide: 'The Gladiator Guide' (look him up), who was SUPER knowledgeable and engaging and very witty with his dry and sarcastic British humour. He alone makes the rating three stars instead of two and I'm sure if we'd have had him as a guide all day this review would look very different. He apparently was only filling in for someone else so don't book this tour hoping you'll get him.
