About
Skip the lines and enter the Colosseum through the restricted entrance of the Arena Floor. During our 2/5-hour tour, your guide will walk you through the Colosseum, while explaining the true brilliance behind its engineering. Your tour will then lead you on a journey through the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum where you will be able to admire the incredible ruins, and enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. Learn the history behind Rome's magnificent amphitheatre and all that surrounds it. The iconic structure was built as a gift to the Roman citizens, to stage various forms of entertainment and to showcase Roman engineering techniques to the rest of the world. The Colosseum featured over 80 entrances and could accommodate around 50,000 spectators. When the Colosseum was in active use, festivals as well as games could last up to 100 days. Please note: Guests under 18, may be required to show ID upon entering the sites. Guests without ID cannot be guaranteed entrance.

The tour covered every place you would want to see at the Forum Colloseum and Palerine Hill.. Our tour guide,, Lumi was an absolute joy. She was fun and engaging. She told us the story of ancient Rome in a way that we could all relate to. Like that rare gem of a person who you meet in a new town who gives you the low down on the people and places and ends up being your best friend. I don't know how else to describe it.

Sara with Crown Tours was extremely professional in setting up our tour and checking in with us each step of the way. She sent a picture of our guide and made sure that the link-up occurred without a hitch.

Roberto our guide was great. He was patient, knowledgeable and made the tour an experience rather than an itinerary based upon rote memorization. When we asked our boys about their favorite part of the day, they stated that the “nice man, Roberto” was one of their favorites.

Highly recommend Crown Tours and Roberto.

Hey Baxter Family, It was great hosting you this weekend! I'm pleased to hear you didn't have any problems meeting up with our group and that you had a great time with the wonderful Roberto! It's a shame to see you would only rate you experience as 3 stars, we'd love for you to reach out to us directly so we can see how we can improve for our future guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future, where we'll be sure to turn those 3 stars into 5! All the best, Sara Crown Tours

Mircea(pronounced Meer-cha) was our tour guide. Although, he said call him Mitch, Mike, Guy with an M, dude, it doesn't matter. He was probably our BEST tour guide we've ever had of any tour we've taken around the world. He has been doing tours of the Colosseum, Palentine Hill, and the Roman Forum for 22 years since he was 15! He was so good that we had some people try to stow away on our tour...twice. He politely asked them not to follow our tour and explained it wasn't fair to us since we paid and they hadn't. But I promise, he was super nice about it. He was so knowledgable and fun that we had very few questions, but was able to answer all of them. He could even explain where the spots in the common TV shows and movies about gladiators were accurate and those that were not. I really liked the part where he showed us the arena floor and explained how the elevators worked. This was hands down an awesome tour!
