Colosseum with Arena: on the stage of Ancient Rome

The privilege to have both gladiators’ perspective and Emperors’ view, in the same day. We will visit the Colosseum with Arena Floor, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

In this tour you can visit the heart of ancient Rome with a exceptional treatment! A special ticket will allow you to start this Colosseum’s visit right from its core: the stage (Arena). Yes, exactly where the gladiators would face their destiny and their fierce opponents in no-holds-barred duels and terrifying battles that would drive the Romans insane. More than anywhere else, from the arena you’ll appreciate Colosseum’s imposing structure conceived with an exceptional modernity and impeccable engineering skills. Ancient world’s wonders that still amaze contemporary. We will carry on by visiting the extended Roman Forum ruins focal point of Romans everyday life. Here is where they’ll meet to take carry out their businesses and to participate in public life. Last but not least, to have an overall view we have to reach the Palatine hill, Roman emperors’ residence from where they would decide the fate of the Roman Empire.

Everyone in our family, adults and children alike, really enjoyed our two tours with Romebylocals.  Chiara brought the Coliseum and Forum to life for us all, with interesting pictures to show us what each area used to look like. Stephania gave us a great tour of the Vatican, pointing out things we would definitely have missed otherwise. Highly recommend.

We requested 3 tours for our family of 7.  We specifically wanted something that was intimate and designed for just us- to have a personal experience where we would be submerged in the Roman culture and history, while at the same time having an open dialogue with the tour person.  All our tours were amazing and the experience was top notch.  I feel that we learned so much more having these personal tours than we would have using a large group tour company.  One member of our family had some limited physical abilities and both tour guides were very accommodating.  The experience will never be forgotten!

Emanuele was extremely easy to work with on our bookings.  He was very responsive, professional and just downright a joy to work with all around!  Romebylocals exceeded all expectations!
