Meeting point

Meet your guide at Largo Gaetana Agnesi, a small, oval-shaped ‘square’ near the Colosseum. Look for a guide wearing GetYourGuide attire and holding a red GetYourGuide flag.

By metro
Take metro line B (the blue line) to the ‘Colosseo’ stop. After the turnstiles, follow the signs for ‘Largo Gaetana Agnesi’, taking an immediate right down the tiled hall to the escalators in the metro station. At the top of the escalator, head right and up a short flight of stairs to exit the station. Once outside, turn left and take the stairs ahead on the left to arrive at Largo Gaetana Agnesi.

On foot
At the ‘Colosseo’ metro station look for the ‘Largo Gaetana Agnesi’ exit, following the same instructions as if you were arriving by metro (see above). If you reach the top floor exit first look for the square, located a few meters away from the metro exit and directly facing the Colosseum.
