What to expect

Enter the Colosseum (just a quick security check) and start your tour. You can visit the ground level and the first floor of the Colosseum. The guide will give the entire family an overview about Ancient Roman history, life, loves and (of course) shows and gladiators fights. Your guides will ask questions and especially focus on interacting with the children, to create the best learning experience!

No need to climb the steep steps: the first tier is accessible by an elevator and our guide will take care of the whole family with a special care for anyone with mobility problems. You will set the pace of this tour and there’s no rush, this is your tour! You will learn about the combats and behind the scenes facts, you’ll see where the gladiators barracks were and where wild animals, prisoners condemned to death and hunters were kept before combat started. If you think that gladiator fights were the only shows performed in this amphitheatre, you’ll be surprised to know how much more made a day at the Colosseum great!

At the end of the tour, the guide will take you for an ice-cream nearby the Colosseum….your “small-gladiators” have followed us for two hours and now we have to buy them a small prize, made of chocolate, mint or any flavour they like.
