Walk in the footsteps of Gladiators and tread on that floor they marched on as they prepared for the battles. Nowhere else on earth you will ever get to be this close to the mightiness and the brutality of this civilization that once aspired to rule the world. You will enter the World’s largest amphitheatre through the Gladiator’s entrance without losing time by standing into a queue and reaching straight onto the partially reconstructed Arena floor.

Listen to your professional guide telling you stories about how the Gladiators and exotic wild animals once battled right in the spot in front of your eyes. You can surely feel kind of chill that the gladiators must have experienced right before the fights. This Colosseum’s gladiator entrance tour is the most unique experience that you would never want to miss out on.

Guided tour seemed the best way to know a place better

I loved this tour. The guided tour was a good choice and blessed us with wonderful memories. Richard, simply amazing and enthusiastic tour guide I’ve ever met. Helped us to enjoy it to the highest possible extent. Nothing to complain about. Thanks to Rome tour tickets for arranging a tour that engraved the memories in our hearts.

a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide

Our guide Maris made this tour so interesting. She managed to make us experience the place as if we lived in the Roman era. Also, skip the queue access helped us to get fast entry and it was a hassle-free tour experience.

Tour with adorable guide

Going through the gladiators gate and standing on the arena floor was a super cool experience. No waiting in the queues got us a quick entry. Our guide was absolutely adorable. She has an absolutely amazing sense of humor. Her knowledge and the way of sharing interesting tidbits of history just amazed me.

Amazing Colosseum Experience

For god sake I booked this tour because it included skip line access. I knew from past experience to other countries how a queue could waste the excitement of visiting a tour. I almost saved more than 1 hour. If I stood in line for long in the hot basking sun then my mind would be like burnt toast and definitely I would lose interest. It’s pretty amazing to see the Colosseum filled with amazing and wonderful history and stories. My kids enjoyed listening to gladiator's history.

Charismatic tour

Our tour guide Sebastino was superb! It was a very enjoyable tour in a good sized group. The only thing we missed was taking more pictures at the centre of the arena. Charismatic and fantastic tour :-)

Some tips to travelers

I had a good experience and enjoyed this tour so shooting some advices if you planning to visit Colosseum: 1. As it’s HOT in the summer so keep a bottle of water 2. Keep a small umbrella to save your skin from the heat 3. Wear comfortable shoes you might need to walk a lot 4. The queues are huge so book skip the line tickets. 5. Book guided to enjoy the Colosseum in the best possible way. 6. Take as many pictures as you want to feed your FB newsfeed for the next 1 year. I did this lol!

Best tour agency indeed

It was a right decision to book my tour with rome tour tickets. Our tour experience was wonderful. I had heard a lot about the architectural and ancient Colosseum. So, I had a keen interest to go there and wasn’t able to resist myself from visiting Rome, especially the Colosseum. We booked instant confirmation to our email after booking the tour online. We had some questions and the support team cleared all the confusion. I had a great time there. I am particularly much happier about having a great visit to Colosseum. If you are planning for a Colosseum tour, I will definitely recommend this tour agency. They are the best I should say.

Strongly recommend tour agency

Rome is such a beautiful place to visit so I along with four of my other friends had to decide to visit again this year. Last time when we were in Rome we booked a tour to the Vatican with the company and service was so good and professional. So, this time we communicated with the company again and based on the recommendation we booked the underground guided tour to Colosseum. We were extremely satisfied with the service and the guide that we had was mind blowing. The way of explanation was soothing and we felt we were living in the era of gladiators. We didn;t forget to catch some breathtaking moments from the arena floor. This agency is providing some freaking good services to the tourists so I would say book any type of tour in Rome With them and you won’t be disappointed.

Guided tour is the ultimate way to explore Colosseum

We booked a guided tour of the Colosseum and with this tour we got the skip the line access. Without skip line access we would have had to wait almost an hour in line just to get in. Our Guide was really helpful, very knowledgeable and made the experience of visiting Colosseum memorable. Overall guided tour with skip line access was really worth it.

A fascinating tour with the wonderful guide

Amazing feeling and experience on a wonderful sunny day. Having a tour guide helped us to get great insights about the history of the Colosseum. Our guide Alex was excellent, spent the whole time with us and the overall tour experience was fantastic. I would recommend guided tours with the skip the line access as the queues can be really long on busy days.
