Not everyone can say that they have stood where the gladiators used to fight, but with this privileged entrance floor Colosseum tour you will be able to.
Start your guided tour at the Colosseum and explore the arena where gladiators and animals fought to the death for the entertainment of bloodthirsty Roman citizens and emperors.

Your guide will tell you fascinating stories about these events and debunk some popular myths along the way.

Learn the history of Ancient Rome as you walk among 2000 year old ruins.
Stroll through the Roman Forum, where Romans lived out their daily lives. Here, politics, business, state funerals and military parades all took centre stage. See the wall on which famous orators such as Cicero made their speeches.

Take a look at the remains of the Temple of Antoninus and Faustina and the temples of Julius Caesar and Romulus.


Listen to your guide’s explanations about the history of the Forum and what the temples, arches, and monuments were used for. Hear about all the activities that took place in this sacred part of Ancient Rome during the days of the Roman Republic.


Visit the Palatine Hill, which was home to the wealthiest of Rome’s noble citizens during the time of the Republic, and later, exclusively the emperor. Today, you can still see remains of some of the imperial palace’s former splendour.


The Palatine Hill looked over the Roman Forum, and it was no accident that the elite ruling class of Rome resided there, eventually becoming home to the Emperors, who built such large residences that the word “palace” takes its name from the hill. Another reason for the importance of this hill was its legendary connection with the birth of Rome.


A visit to the Palatine Hill is a must if you want to understand how the Romans felt about their city.


With this Gladiator’s Gate Colosseum tour you will be able to connect with the culture and people who inhabited these buildings twenty centuries ago.
