What to expect

Retrace the glorious past of Ancient Rome visiting the Colosseum and stepping into its arena! This experience is part of Iconic Insiders, a selection of tours designed for first time visitors to uncover what matters and get oriented in a new city. Your destination insider is a licensed guide who will offer recommendations and highlight the most visually attractive places of the itinerary.

Begin your tour in the archaeological area, where you'll have the chance to take the most instagrammable shots at the Colosseum and the other sites, including the Arch of Constantine, built to commemorate ten years of the emperor's reign, and Palatine Hill, the most ancient part of the city.

Entering the reconstructed arena floor through the 'Death Gate', you'll travel back in time and live an authentic gladiator experience. Imagine the roar of the crowds as combatants were poised to battle and the thrill of fighting for your life in front of 50,000 people. Your guide will be happy to tell you plenty of curiosities about the Colosseum's history, anecdotes about the most important gladiators, and myths surrounding the renowned amphitheater.
