Our tour is one of the most exciting and fascinating tours of ancient Rome available. We offer you the experience of seeing the Colosseum from a unique perspective. Not only will you get a tour of the main stage arena, you will also be allowed to scour the depths of the Dungeons and lower levels as well gaining an unrivaled view of the arena and its surroundings from the restricted access upper levels, known as the “Upper Ring” of the Colosseum. Also included are tours of the other nearby key archaeological sites, the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
This all-inclusive tour is subject to limited availability, with only very few reservations permitted on a weekly basis. You can be one of the few lucky ones who join us on this tour of a lifetime. The Dungeons and Upper levels are restricted areas where ordinary Colosseum tours are not allowed access. Down in the Dungeons and lower-levels of the Colosseum you will gain a terrifying insight into the quarters which were used to house slaves and wild beasts before they were winched up to the arena by slave powered elevators, then through trap doors to the waiting audience above and almost certain death-You will come to understand the complex network of pulleys, levers and platforms which were used to raise man and beast alike to the arena above.
Only For You
From there, the tour moves on towards the Upper levels of the Colosseum. These upper levels, the so called “Upper Ring”, like the dungeons were previously off-limits, but are now open subject to special reservation. Our expert tour-guides will show you the steep seating where the lower members of society (women, slaves etc) were forced to sit farthest away from the action on the stage. Fortunately now, these levels offer the best view in the house, both of the arena itself and surrounding sites. And that view will be waiting for you when you book this exclusive access all areas tour.
