The highlights of Ancient Rome for the modern visitor are the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Standing in the center of the city, these epic monuments attract thousands of visitors every day. If you want to visit on your own, but do not want to get stuck in the lines outside, you can still take advantage of our Skip-the-Line tickets. Our coordinator will escort you inside both the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, exchanging your voucher for an actual ticket and bypassing the crowds. All you need to do is explore.

Explore the Colosseum in your own way

You will be able to experience the magnitude of Ancient Rome’s most iconic symbol at your own pace. No Lines. No following guides on a pre-set route. Just an experience of the Colosseum the way you want it. Maybe you want to get as close as you can to the underground area where the slaves and wild animals waited. Perhaps you want to climb the steep steps to take in the views through the arches over Rome. Or maybe you just want to wander through the tiered ruins that were once filled with some 50,000-80,000 bloodthirsty spectators.

Skip the Line into the Roman Forum

After the tour, you will also have the option of staying inside the Colosseum to continue exploring or follow our representative to take advantage of Skip-the-Line Access to the Roman Forum. Our City Wonders coordinator will give you instructions on where to meet to pick up your tickets. You will also be able to hike to the top of the Palatine Hill for an exceptional bird’s-eye view over Rome, the Forum and Circus Maximus.

Upgrade Option

The Gladiator perspective of the Colosseum has always fascinated visitors. You can now enjoy privileged access directly to the Arena Floor through the recently opened ‘Gladiator Gate’. Feel the glory and majesty of Rome at the height of its power as you walk on the very same stones as those who came to fight here in gladiatorial combat. You’ll tread in their footsteps, out onto a partial reconstruction of the arena floor. Looking down you’ll enjoy up-close views of the underground area where the spectacle was brought to life. Not far away are the best seats in the house where the Emperor waited.

These are all special access areas that standard ticket holders don’t get to see. If that was not enough, you’ll also gain access to the second floor, tracing the Colosseum’s circumference to understand what it must have been like when the stands filled, the crowds were roaring, and a gladiator’s fate hung on their moods.
