About
Avoid the crowds and skip the lines with our fast track entrance to the colosseum underground, our expert guides will be sure to bring history to life. Starting off below ground, you'll explore the restricted areas of the colosseum underground as you listen to the stories of the Great Roman Histories. Walk in the footsteps of Gladiators, as you'll also be given access to the Arena Stage. Dive deep into the past and understand how the Emperor communicated his power to his people, through battles and shows, and how the Romans spent their leisure time. The tour doesn't stop there, you'll also have the chance to get away from the crowds with a semi private small group tour of the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Here you will be able to admire the incredible ruins, and enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum.

We arranged a private tour of the Colosseum and the Roman Forum for our extended family of six people. Our tour guide Roberto was exceptional. His knowledge of ancient Roman history was impressive and his storytelling fun and engaging. He was patient and playful with the 7-year old in our group. Overall, a 5-star experience. Highly recommended.

Nicola (Nick) was our guide and he was so great! His English was very good, very understandable. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions. He was really fun and friendly. The colosseum, forum, and palatine hill were very interesting and definitely worth it. The underground was really cool and worth the price if you’re interested in the history.
Everyone at crown tours was friendly and helpful

We did the ultimate 360 tour. We were very lucky and there were only 4 people on our tour with Maya. Maya was excellent, very informative and friendly and great fun. The Colosseum was just amazing and it was well worth paying the extra to see the newly opened underground section.
