What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome Italy

In ancient times, the public did not see the underground area of the Colosseum, as it was a staging area where animals were caged and gladiators sharpened their swords and prepared themselves for the games. The Gladiators’ Dungeons have been opened to the public only recently and you’ll have the opportunity to see them with an official guide, who will show you the working of the underground system from below the arena, and on the arena floor itself.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Roman Forum, Piazza Santa Maria Nova, 53, 00186 Rome Italy

At the Roman Forum, you’ll be surrounded by famous ancient structures such as the Rostra, upon which Marc Antony delivered Caesar’s funeral eulogy, the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina, and the temples of Julius Caesar and Romulus, to name just a few.

Your guide will tell you about the history of the Forum, the purposes of the temples, arches, and monuments and describe the activities that took place in this sacred part of ancient Rome, which was the epicenter of Roman life.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
