Largo Romolo e Remo, Rome, 00186

The Basics

The site is most often visited on three-hour tours that combine a visit to the ancient city with a Colosseum tour. Whether you choose a private tour or small-group tour, it's wise to visit with an expert guide who can help you navigate the large space and bring the ruins to life with true stories of gladiators, Roman emperors, and Julius Caesar. After your visit, check out the adjacent ruins at Circus Maximus or pay a visit to the Capitoline Museums to see the display of classical Roman empire sculptures.

Colosseum Underground Guided Tour with Palatine Hill & Roman Forum Access
Absolutely fantastic! From beginning to end the tour was exactly what we wanted and more. Our guide was passionate, knowledgable and really easy going. The tour was well organised and for someone who had OCD around COVID they took every measure possible to ensure the trip was safe for everyone! The tour made the final day of our trip - I’m so glad we booked it. Thanks, we would 100% book other tours with you!

Wonderful Colosseo Tour by Daniel

Daniel was amazing!! His knowledge of the history and so many other minute details was impressive. More importantly he was passionate about the history of Roma! His excitement for history and presenting it to others was so visible and made the tour a very special experience. This was my first ever tour and could not have picked a better one. Daniel also brought along a very cool book that had overlays showing gown some of the sites would have looked thousands of years ago, a very special touch. I even bought the book myself. I have friends coming to visit Roma next year and will highly recommend Daniel. Please convey to him again My Thanks for an AMAZING tour experience.

To try and absorb centuries of the Roman empire in 3 hours can be daunting, but we had an extraordinary guide, Zenda who made it seem so easy. These are once in a lifetime visits and we were so glad that it was so well-conducted. Thanks.

Our guide was wonderful. She met us and walked us through the Colosseum, to Palatine Hill and showed us the Roman Forum, which we were able to explore after the tour. She was quick with taking care of the entrance issues and gave us so much interesting information. Definitely worth it’

Great experience visiting the Colosseum in Rome with the family. Was a bit concerned about bringing my kids (10 and 14) but they really enjoyed the tour as well, the guide was fantastic in keeping the children engaged and involved. Money well spent!

When to Get There

As the Roman Forum shares an admission ticket with the Colosseum, it stays consistently busy throughout the day and often has long lines. Choose a walking tour with priority access to jump the queue and maximize your time.

Discovering the Roman Forum Ruins

Inside the archaeological area, stick to the Forum’s main thoroughfare, Via Sacra, to pass by important ruins such as the Julia Curia and the house of the Vestal Virgins. Some of the forum’s most impressive ruins include the white marble arch of Settimio Severo, the first-century Arch of Titus, and the remains of the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine. If you can’t get enough of ancient Rome, there’s plenty more history just outside the city with day trips available to Pompeii and the Appian Way.
