Colosseum Private Tours

Our Colosseum private tours which also include the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill will show you the deep, rich history of the Roman Empire. You will learn about the founders of Rome, Romulus, and Remus at Palatine Hill. Roman Forum will take you back to the times of the governance; the place from where the Senate used to gather, and decisions made about Rome.

Have you wondered how the Colosseum was constructed? How did the Roman engineers, with the help of Jewish slaves, build an architectural marvel? Find out from your private guide if there were really female gladiators. And if they were, did they fight the ferocious animals too? What about the mock sea battles? Was the engineering smart enough to fill the arena with water? Let your guide dispel the myth and reveal the truth. Learn about famous historical figures such as Caesar, Nero and Augustus, their triumphs, and tragedies.

One of the most recognisable and iconic buildings ever built, the Colosseum is a statement of Roman architecture and engineering feat. It is an achievement itself that a building which is almost two thousand years old is still standing and boasts over seven million visitors a year. In 70AD, Emperor Vespasian commissioned the build. It was to thank the people and give them something back as the history before that was rather dark and bleak. Epileptically shaped, the amphitheatre measured 190 by 155 metres. The inauguration was carried out in AD80 with 100 days of celebrations. Four centuries witnessed close to half a million gladiators and one million animals lose their battle in the majestic arena. Our passionate guides will share tales with you of brave gladiators, where the animals came from, and what it would have been like to live in those times.

Roman Forum

Palatine Hill is one of the seven hills of Rome and from here, look down at the beautiful residences of the Emperors of the past. Imagine the royal life they would have led.In Rome, you cannot miss viewing the Roman Forum, which is part of this tour, and it is an incredible site which there are many stories of which will be told by your expert guide. As you step in the Roman Forum, you will be transported back into time. Here, stories will be shared about the movers and shakers – The Senate, the emperors, the generals who decided the course of history for Rome, both great and sometimes evil. During the Colosseum private tours, you will stroll along Via Sacra, which was the main road in the ancient city. Lined by the colonnades by Nero, it serves as a reminder that this was the main road where glories and triumphs were paraded and celebrated. Religious festivities and pageantry were all part of the celebrations. Here, the crowds would gather to cheer or jeer as their emperors, generals made their way with pomp.

The Roman Forum also features ruins of temples, arches, and churches dating back before the 5th century. You will see the Via Nova, as street which was built by Emperor Caracalla. Here you will see the altar where the body of Caesar was cremated and also see what remains of the Temple of Julius Caesar. Your tour will also see you visit the remains of the Temple of Vesta where the Vestal Virgins, six virgins,
guarded the eternal flames as it was believed it was for the safety and well-being of Rome

  •   Tour was good and guide was very informative! If you want to spend a lot of time in Colosseum you should do the shorter tour. There is so much to see so 3 hours goes by quick. Skip the line is a must!!!!
