Introduction To Colosseum, Rome, Italy Tour

The Colosseum is an oval amphitheater located immediately east of the Roman Forum in the heart of Rome, Italy.

Despite its age, it is the largest ancient amphitheater ever erected and remains the world’s largest standing amphitheater today.

Construction began under the reign of Emperor Vespasian and was completed by his successor and heir, Titus, in the year 80 AD. During the reign of Domitian, more changes were enacted.

The Flavian dynasty is called for the three emperors who financed the project, and the amphitheater is known as the Flavian Amphitheatre.

Your journey begins on Oppian Hill, where you’ll get a birds-eye perspective of the Colosseum. With your fast-track pass, you’ll skip the lines and go straight into the Colosseum when you arrive at the world’s wonder.

Your guide will transport you back in time as he narrates tales of gladiator clashes, horrific animal fights, and executions in front of 50,000 people.

If you upgrade your experience, you’ll be able to see the arena floor and subterranean tunnels, which are normally inaccessible to the public.

Visit the cells where criminals and wild animals were held, as well as the arena where Roman gladiators fought.

The two public levels don’t have nearly as much of a sense of dread as the underground and third floors. Overall, this tour is well worth the money, and it greatly enhanced our enjoyment of our visit to the Colosseum.
