For those that are a little short on time the Colosseum Express is the best tour to get the most out of the monument while still leaving time to visit the rest of this great city.
When you join the Express Colosseum tour...
we get you immediate access into the Colosseum with one of our helpful and knowledgeable guides who can make sure you get the full experience without having to miss out on anything else. After a short introduction about the Colosseum, the Flavian dynasty who built the amphitheatre, and the architecture of the stadium, you will walk around the outside of the building toward the entrance. As we head inside the Colosseum, we will be entering through the same gates that eager Romans would have rushed into to see the games.
Once inside we will rise up to the seating area where rich Patrician families would have sat, and which now offers a perfect view onto the arena floor and an aerial viewpoint of the underground tunnels. From there we will walk around the enormous building with its many different angles offering great photo opportunities. As we make our way around we will come downstairs for a closer look at the arena and get an idea of what it would have felt like walking out in front of thousands of fans screaming out for blood.
An express tour doesn’t mean that you miss out on any of the thrills, you will still discover many hidden secrets, both ancient and modern. Lasting only 1½ hours, this tour is perfect for those who want to quickly visit the Colosseum but not miss out on all the wonders it has to offer.
