The interesting landmark in central Rome

We entered the world's largest amphitheater through the gladiator’s entrance without losing time and it was the most unique experience. Stepped onto the arena floor and we could feel how the gladiators and exotic wild animals battled right in the spot in front of crowds. It was a great moment and we could feel the brutal experience Gladiators used to live. Our guide was proficient and well-skilled who narrated everything in a very engaging way. We were hooked in the whole time we were with her. Amazing experience!

Passionate tour guide

The tour was instructive. It was easy to understand what our guide was explaining. The tour was very well arranged. We really skipped the crowd and went straight into each site. She was a marvelous guide to know many records and features about the ancient Roma history. Thank you for making our trip to Colosseum a bit more special.

Such an amazing tour

Roberta was absolutely the most astounding guide we had in Rome. She described to us every perspective of the Colosseum without any dull details. She executed the tour like we were part of a story that was written in front of our eyes. When you have a wonderful guide like her your tour experience is bound to be great. My special thanks to Rometourtickets for providing such an enthusiastic guide who knows how to conduct a tour well.

A thought came true

This place took our breath away. We stayed for a week in Rome and the day at Colosseum was the best day ever. It seemed one visit is just not enough. Well worth the visit. This company provided great services from the beginning of the booking process.

Lots of interesting information

We did a pre-booked tour and skipped all lines, got direct entry into the colosseum. While this is a wreckage it shows the significance of what was achieved by early Romans. We were able to walk where the Romans and gladiators walked. Lots of interesting information all around the Colosseum. You can’t miss visiting this place while in Rome.

Very good value for money

Me and my better half are really interested in history, great stories and facts to be discovered. So this tour was the perfect match for us. Absolutely fascinating, especially the gladiator’s entrance to the colosseum and stepped onto the arena floor. An amazing view to see this iconic place.

The exhibits are excellent

This was simply an incredible visit. It was a glory to explore the vast history and I recommend this tour to visit the magnificent Colosseum. It must have been an unimaginable spectacle when in use and full. Pretty hectic place but very good value especially when you step on the arena floor.

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.
