  • Overview

    There's something creepy down there! Why don't you come and see? Wonder what you'll see? Get ready to explore the ancient side of Rome, learn about the prisoners and walk the sneaky entrance to the mighty Colosseum.

    Plug your video guide in and head into the Mamertine Prison of St. Peter. It's where they vanquished the good, and the bad and wrong-doers, Kings, didn't get away with it either! Including St Peter and St Paul. It might be dark and cramped, but you'll get a real sense of the place and what it was like. Including the bars that St. Peter was allegedly chained to, and the water he used to baptize visitors.

    Then you'll head to the Colosseum through a sneaky tunnel where you can take in the grand arena. You can't fail to be impressed. Then to cap it all the Roman Forum is there to explore at your own pace. History brought to life through video and self-exploring. A perfect Roman conquest.
