The Colosseum: Choose Your Tour

by Gavin Darvell

Step inside The Colosseum and then stop for a moment. Stop everything and look around you; let your imagination carry you back to a day in Ancient Rome. Standing in the exact spot where you are, a gladiator once stood. Perhaps sword in hand, ready to fight for their life! The baying crowd shouting and screaming for his blood! It’s a chilling thought and thankfully one you don’t have to witness today. 


A visit to the Colosseum will evoke those kinds of feelings; it’s what this place does to you — this ancient monument that reaches high into the Rome sky. So on your visit to Rome what type of Colosseum tour should you take to have the ultimate experience. We take a look at your options.


Into a 3D world


How about the feeling of actually being there, instead of just imagining it? With a Virtual tour, you can do precisely that. Stick your VR headset on and enjoy an immersive experience that’ll take you back in time. This tour is history brought back to life, so choose your language and dive right in, literally!


Priority Entrance


On a busy high season day, the queues for the Colosseum can be very long! Snaking their way down the road, probably like the ancient Romans waiting to watch the next Gladiator battle. Do you want to wait in line and inch your way forward bit by bit while others walk by and head straight into the arena? Get yourself Priority Entrance tickets, and you’ll be the one jumping the queue. And what’s more, you can pick your slot! Morning or afternoon, you decide.
