THIS TOUR INCLUDES:
Start your journey into the Ancient Roman world. Focus on the marvels of the free shows th Emperor offered to the people of Rome, live the atmosphere of gladiator fights and wild animal hunts with the “extras”, the executions.
Gladiatorial combat, wild animal fights & imperial decisions will come alive during the Colosseum Tour through the words of our passionate, entertaining official guides.
Follow us up to the first and second tier of the most interesting amphitheater in the world and hear the stories of its construction and the events!
Less than you think!!
How many slaves were used? Which animals were used during the shows? Discover this and many other things with our local Roman guide in a entertaining Colosseum Tour! You will explore the incredible “emergency” exit system … Still working quite well today to distribute the thousands of visitors in the structure.
Public executions and behind the scene gladiator stories will enchant you. Your tour guide will help you discover how reality was much more spectacular than any movie … we are sure your Colosseum Tour will be even more memorable than Russel Crowe story 🙂
How many spectators attended every show? How many shows in one year? Where did the Emperor sit? Where were the poor ones seated? how many gladiators died in every show?! we will answer all of your questions!
