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.

Wonderful site to see and enjoy

What a majestic place. We stood on the floor of the arena and it was so fascinating to hear about ancient history that makes us realize how small we are. The actual archeological place of the Colosseum was astounding. I will never forget this. This company is a real tour provider that everyone should use.

Really good attraction

Marvelous place. It’s a famous place that one must-see. We learned so much. I would recommend a guided tour so the guide will explain to you the history behind it. Our guide was excellent and covered all that a tour needs to be an excellent one!

Could have spent a bit more time

I'm so happy that my wife and I were able to see the Colosseum from the arena floor. It really does help to assume the richness of the place from the viewpoint of the gladiators. This tour was an excellent way to start our visit to Rome. So many highlights will be witnessed during your 2.30 hours. Do it!

View from the Colosseum arena is so awesome

Bypass the long lines and see the Colosseum through the eyes of gladiators on this tour. Entry through the gladiators gate will thrill you. We’ve enjoyed a tour to remember for a long time. There is a floor named Arena Floor and you’ll have a magnificent view from that place. Thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there.

Very lively tour with a professional guide

The Gladiator Special Access Tour of the Colosseum is surely the best way to experience Colosseum. Our guide Angela was absolutely charming. So much unheard and fascinating information to take in. Easy to book, excellent check in process, and professional services from an experienced tour operation. You’ll surely love the tour!

Our guide was astounding

We arrived 20 minutes early. The tour started on time. We had an amazing guide called Maria. She was insightful, thoughtful, playful, and really learned. We had an amazing time and smiled a lot. We weren't hastened around like other tours I have been on and I would definitely love to go with this tour agent again for any other tours in Rome.

Excellent trip with an excellent guide

A really great place to visit. The meeting place was in a great location. Having such a knowledgeable, passionate, and entertaining guide added our visit extra enjoyment. The Gladiator's gate seemed a great price and proved excellent. This particular tour allows the fast lower entrance at a reasonable price.

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.

History of Rome Lies Here

This historical masterpiece lived up to expectations. A massive building that is captivating to see in person. I would recommend this tour because you skip the 2 hours-long line. The artifacts inside of the colosseum provide a nice addition of history and context. Overall it was great to see up close and personal. I won’t forget this amazing experience any sooner!
