The ultimate Colosseum Underground tour experience!

I cannot recommend this tour enough! The instructions to find our tour guide were clear and we found her without problems. There were only about nine people in our Colosseum underground tour group. A visit to the underground level gave us a really interesting perspective of the Colosseum. Our tour of the Roman Forum was also amazing. When we finished our guided tour, we were able to explore the Forum and Palatine Hill at our leisure. 10/10 experience!

Tom was an excellent guide! He was so knowledgeable, and we learned things about the history of Rome that we had never heard before. Wandering through the ancient underground tunnels was such a unique experience. We really liked the Colosseum Underground tour - it has a special feel - don't miss it!
