Colosseum Underground Tour – The Dungeons

  • Duration: 2 Hours
  • Max Participants: 18
  • Min Participants: 2
  • English, Italian, Spanish
  • Effort: Easy

This is not a regular Colosseum tour, this is the most exclusive Colosseum tour in Rome! Let us treat you like a VIP as we enter with skip the line tickets and get behind the scenes access to explore the Colosseum Underground and Ancient Rome.
The first stop of the tour is the Colosseum Underground or “The Dungeons”. Used for keeping slaves and animals, the “Hypogeum” featured two levels and an entire network of tunnels. This is where gladiators and wild animals awaited their gruesome fate. You will explore this behind the scenes area together with your professional licensed guide.
You will be standing in an area that was unknown to the tens of thousands of screaming spectators above. Your expert guide will explain you how you would have felt at this moment if you were a gladiator- it was dark, you were alone and you knew that you might be taking your last breaths in this world. You will get to walk directly beneath the stage and get the best view of what went on behind the scenes. You will also see a trap door used to raise gladiators and animals on the stage.

Once you’ve had your glorious historical experience inside the Colosseum, you will have the chance to explore the heart of Ancient Rome, the Roman Forum. Get a front-row seat to Ancient Roman history as you take a guided walk through the ruins of The Temple of Julius Caesar, The Arch of Titus, The Roman Senate House, and other incredible ruins. Your guide will bring it all to life for you, with the amazing tales of Marc Antony, Cleopatra, and Julius Caesar.
Last but not least, visit Palatine Hill. This awe-inspiring area of towering pine trees, majestic ruins, and unparalleled views where Romulus was said to have founded Rome. This is also where Rome’s Emperors lived in opulent luxury.
