Perfect Colosseum VIP tour!

This tour is the closest I’ve felt to a VIP. Our guide, Stefano, was very attentive and made suggestions on what we might like based on our small comments! He also asked us what interested us most and then spent 30 minutes discussing the Colosseum’s supposed naval battles. His entire focus was purely on us, and I felt very taken care of. Also, this tour includes privileged entry to the Colosseum, which is great! Highly recommend booking this tour if you want to explore the Colosseum in peace!

A journey back through time in style

I visited the Colosseum for the first time on this private tour, and it was one of the best experiences of my life! First of all, the sheer size of the amphitheater left me speechless, and then our guide started explaining the history of the gladiator battles, which impressed me even more. The tour wouldn’t have been the same without her - she answered all my questions, and I learned so much!

DESCRIPTION

Colosseum Private Tour

Start your Colosseum private tour by meeting your guide in front of Caffè Roma at 31 Via del Colosseo. You’ll recognize them by a sign with your name on it. Get ready to explore ancient Rome!

EXCLUSIVE ACCESS & PRIVATE TOUR OF THE COLOSSEUM

Your guide will take you through the legendary amphitheater, teaching you about 2,000 years of its history. As you admire its architecture and learn about its past, don’t forget to ask your guide questions on any topic. After all, they are fully at your disposal during this private tour.

HIERARCHY OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

During this Colosseum private tour, you’ll learn about the Roman Empire’s social hierarchy. Gladiators were nearly always slaves or prisoners of war and wildly despised by the Roman people. But, there was also division among standard citizens. For example, only the Emperor and senators could sit in the best seats in the Colosseum (the ones closest to the arena). Below them sat the Equestrians, who were the second tier of the elite class. The worst seats were reserved for women, the poor, and slaves.

VISIT THE ROMAN FORUM

After visiting the Colosseum, your guide will lead you to the Roman Forum. You’ll pass through privileged entry and skip the line, avoiding any waiting times. Admire the ruins of the Roman Forum as your guide explains its history. The Roman Forum was the center of Ancient Rome, home to temples, elections, and all kinds of public affairs. You’ll also see the Via Sacra - Ancient Rome’s main street.

Colosseum Private Tour

Did you know that the Colosseum had VIP sections and ticket stubs?

There were 80 entrances to the Colosseum - but the north entrance was specifically reserved for the Emperor. Other high-ranking citizens could use the east, south, and west entrances, and the remaining 76 entryways were for common citizens of Rome.

In ancient times, a Colosseum 'ticket' was actually a part of a broken pot, which had a seat number carved into it. This helped each spectator identify and find their designated spot in the amphitheater.

Good to know before you go

  • Please note that you must pass a metal detector security check to enter the Colosseum.
  • It is required to bring a photo ID - either a passport or an identity card. This also applies to children.
  • We recommend wearing comfortable shoes and bringing a bottle of water so you can enjoy the tour as much as possible.
  • This private Colosseum tour is available in English, Spanish, German, French and Italian.
  • If your plans change, you can cancel your tour up to 24 hours in advance for a 100 % refund.
