No trip to Rome would be complete without a visit to the Colosseum! Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Roman Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire. It was completed in 80 AD, and had a capacity for between 50,000 and 75,000 spectators.
For over 500 years, the Colosseum's arena was the site of fight after fight; the Colosseum was the stage for games between the most famous gladiators, who battled to the death. Lions, panthers, crocodiles, elephants, hippopotamuses and giraffes fresh out of Africa were also brought here to fight the gladiators. The arena could even be filled with water to stage naval battles in the very heart of Rome!
With your skip-the-line ticket, you will be able to avoid waiting in the long lines at the entrance and gain direct access to this historic monument.
After the visit to the Colosseum, your guide will take you to the Roman Forum, the heart of Roman society, via the Palatine Hill and the Sacred Way.
NB: the Colosseum is currently undergoing renovation works which will continue for the foreseeable future. Certain parts of the Colosseum may therefore be unavailable for public access.
