  • Discover the history of the Colosseum through an interactive historical 3D certified reconstruction

  • Skip the line to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill and enjoy the most important ancient Roman monuments
What to expect

Join this innovative tour and explore the Colosseum like never before. Thanks to an animated and interactive 3D certified reconstruction integrated by a narrative-friendly voice, discover the most important ancient monument in the world. Meet the staff to collect your skip-the-line ticket and to receive the latest generation display Oculus VR to wear throughout the tour.

Be prepared to be virtually immersed in the ancient Rome of nearly 2000 years ago, when the Colosseum knew its moments of greatest glory and fame. You can walk virtually into its three areas, thanks to virtual reality: the square, admiring the gilded bronze statue of Nero; inside the arena between the roar of ferocious lions and gladiators fighting; into various corridors of the mysterious underground (and typically unknown to tourists) where slaves move around silently to prepare the shows and hungry animals are ready to suddenly be projected into the arena.

After completing the virtual experience, you will be escorted by staff to the entrance of the Colosseum to complete the overview of its history "on your own". Once your adventure inside the Colosseum has ended, if you're not tired, you can continue the cultural visit on your own, with the same skip-the-line ticket, inside a real open-air museum: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill (house of Romulus, the founder of Rome).
