The Colosseum


The world’s largest Roman amphitheatre, the Colosseum, is Rome’s most visited attraction, built nearly 2000 years ago with a seating capacity of 45,000. Spectators flocked to see gladiator fights, animal hunts, battle re-enactments and mythology plays. Learn about its bloodthirsty history from an expert guide and avoid the queue battles by taking a tour with priority entry which is combined with a visit to another historical site like the Roman Forum - ancient seat of government and commerce, or VIP tickets to Caesar’s Palace, home of the Emperor Augustus.

48 hour City Sightseeing packages include VIP entry to the Colosseum, and also the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel.  If you’re short of time, the Colosseum and Vatican Museums are included on the Rome In A Day tour, which takes you around all the top sights of the city with fast track entry, and includes a free gelato!

Emperor Augustus is one of the most important figures in the history of Western Civilization but for years his amazing palace has been closed to the public and its interiors kept a closely guarded secret. With its opening Walks of Italy is proud to be the first tour operator to take you inside the intimate living quarters of this forefather of the Roman empire. With our new VIP Caesar’s Palace Tour, we’ll take you beyond security gates into the home of one of history’s great leaders. You will admire incredible frescoes and architecture as you learn about the fascinating lives that unfurled here, with appearances from Mark Anthony and Cleopatra; and rumors of murder by poisoning. This amazingly well-preserved palace is every bit as impressive as Pompei i but sits directly in the heart of Rome. Afterwards, head to the Colosseum to learn about the astounding blood sports that took place here. With Skip the Line Access, you won’t waste in long ticket lines for a fully-guided tour of the first and second levels. On this VIP Ancient Rome tour you’ll also stroll through the Roman Forum, where money-lenders, temples, and debate forums once hosted the teaming civic life of the ancient city; visit the Temple of The Vestal Virgins; climb the Palatine Hill for a lesson in the mythic founding of the city by Romulus and Remus; and learn of the great victories that inspired the Arches of Constantine and Titus. With skip-the-line access at all sites, an expert guide, and a small group of 15 people or fewer, this is the perfect tour for those who want an insight into Roman history that goes far beyond the conventional tourist trail and introduces you to some of Antiquity’s greatest sites.

Step off the trodden trail for a “new” experience of Ancient Rome! Security gates, previously opened only for archaeologists and historians, will swing open for you on this Ancient Rome tour; allowing you exclusive access to the 1st century BC home of Rome’s first emperor, Augustus Caesar (nephew of Julius Caesar) and his formidable wife, Empress Livia Drusilla.

For many years archaeologists and preservationists have been hard at work restoring these ancient treasures: Shoring up the walls and recapturing the colors and details of 2000 year old fresco painting. The result is an archaeological complex, ready to be seen like never before. Be amongst the first to experience it as our handpicked guides bring history to life. Then continue with tales of gladiators and beasts on a guided Colosseum & Ancient Rome tour.

At the imperial houses, in a small group of 15 people or fewer, you’ll learn why they are, in fact, the world’s first “palaces.” Your group will be the only ones inside for a full hour, plenty of time to imagine the days when the world was ruled from here. Your Ancient Rome tour also continues to the Roman Forum and Colosseum, by-passing the regular entrance lines with pre-reserved tickets for a truly rounded view of life during that period.

Important Information

There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.

The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).

No map is available for this attraction at the moment.
