Save time and see more of the Colosseum and Forum on this extended, small-group tour. You’ll get skip-the-line access to the perpetually crowded Colosseum, and beyond to the building’s third, fourth, and reopened fifth tiers—areas not always open to the public. The fifth tier especially, called Belvedere, is a treat with great photo opps of the Roman skyline and Palatine Hill. The tour finishes with guided visits to Via Sacra, the Forum, and Palatine Hill
What to Expect

Your tour of Ancient Rome will begin with skip the line access directly into the Colosseum where your guide will take you around the general access areas, telling stories of heroic Gladiators fighting for survival and the ravenous crowds of plebeians and extravagant nobility cheering on their glory.

Walk around the third and fourth tier of the Colosseum, an area not open to the general public, but watch your step! In a unique approach to crowd control the steps of the Colosseum where designed uneven to slow down the hordes of people and make them pay attention to where they walked. Then you’ll go where few have ever ventured, the Colosseum Belvedere. Meaning "Beautiful View" the Colosseum Belvedere is precisely that! You’ll be treated to a 360˚ view of the Colosseum from above and stunning views of the Roman skyline.

From the Colosseum, you'll walk down the length of the Via Sacra where everyday life ran its course towards the Roman Forum. Visit the house of the Vestal Virgins; the altar where Julius Caesar was cremated and hear stories of grand processions and festivals.

End at the Beginning on Palatine Hill. It was here that Romulus is fabled to have founded Rome and where Emperors and nobility built their splendid villas- the ruins of which you’ll be exploring. Take in the beautiful view of Rome complete with the iconic Colosseum and stunning gardens for that perfect vacation photo op.

There has to be a better way...

to manage skip-the-line. We waited for a VERY long time in hot sun outside colosseum while they tried to organize. To be fair, I think they restrict access to avoid overcrowding inside, so perhaps that was part of it. We purchased this with the forum...More

We took both if these tours.

We took the early access tour beginning at 7:55 and it was already crowded. Try to get an earlier tour. We only had 12 in our group. The guide was excellent. Be prepared to feel like a sardine. The earlier the better. We found this...More

This tour is amazing. We have previously been to the Colosseum, spending our time on the lower levels. Today we climbed to the recently opened 5th level and enjoyed the spectacular views both down into the Colosseum floor and seating areas and also the surrounding...More

Great tour

The City Wonder colosseum tour was really interesting. It was definitely worth being able to visit the lower tiers, as only archaeologists can take you down their, so there was lots of information. The colosseum actually has very few information signs on site, so it...More

Rome in August was very hot. Walking around the Coliseum for a few hours with two teenagers could have been asking for trouble but Antonio kept it funny and interesting. The time flew by and we headed to the Forum. I have been to the...More
