Explore where few have...go underground at the Coloseeum!
At Secrets Italy, we prefer quality over quantity. Our small groups have no more than 10-12 people – unlike some of our competitors who have up to 24 people – which makes our tours more intimate and interesting.
You will visit areas of the Colosseum that for decades have been closed off to the public on our Underground Colosseum Tour which includes the Upper Ring and the Arena Stage. Our extra special access will take you places where visitors with a regular ticket are not allowed. Follow your expert, licensed guide beyond locked gates and through underground passageways to reach areas that, until now - only the Gladiators and wild animals would see...
This special journey begins at the Arch of Constantine – a magnificent triumphal arch located at the foot of the Colosseum. Built in 315AD - the arch signifies the beginning of the Christian era in Rome. Our Colosseum "Underground" Tour continues our top VIP access. We will skip all of the lines as gates will be unlocked just for our group to reach the Underground, the Upper Ring (with its astounding views over the entire archeological park), the Forum, and the Arena Stage - from where we will enjoy a vista of the entire arena from a Gladiator's point of view.
Our comprehensive visit of Ancient Rome doesn't stop here. Next, we'll walk down the main artery of the beating heart of Ancient Rome: Via Sacra (Sacred Road). This is where all of the excitement once happened, the epicenter of the political and cultural goings-on of the Roman Empire. This is the spot where Julius Caesar was cremated, where Marc Anthony gave his infamous funerary speech, and where the beautiful and mysterious vestal virgins worked day and night to keep the flame burning for the Goddess Vestal at the temple.
A private tour of classic Ancient Rome to visit the Colosseum and the Roman Forum and discover the secrets and fascinating history of the Roman Empire.
