Smart Colosseum


The symbol of Rome

Are you in Rome and you don't know which monument to start visiting? Are you passionate about history but have little time available? For all these and many other reasons this tour is the perfect solution for you! Save time and listen to the passionate explanation of an art historian guide.

You cannot have been to Rome and not have visited the symbolic monument of this city, known all over the world: the Colosseum.

Your guide is waiting for your small group tour directly at the Colosseum, and you’ll soon be inside thanks to the skip-the-line ticket included in the tour! This will be a top-of-the-line tour of perhaps the most famous Roman landmark, and you will be surely stunned by the magnificence of this Arena. While walking the tribune rows you’ll learn all about its origin and history, the games and the celebrations, the legends of the gladiators and their triumphs and defeats, the festivals held as a massive display of power by the emperors.

If you have extra time, this ticket will allow you to keep wandering around inside the Colosseum or maybe add your own moment of exploration and take a walk in the Roman Forum and go see from up close the outstanding set of other landmarks, buildings and ruins there, such as the temples of various emperors or the impressive Arch of Titus.
