Colosseum Night Tour With Underground Access
Skip the queues, avoid the crowds and behold the spectacle that is the Colosseum by night. As the sun sets over Rome, and many have finished their sightseeing for the day, this is when we begin our intimate tour of Ancient Rome and the Colosseum. Savour every moment inside one of the most imposing and must see ancient structures in Rome.
As day gives way to night we see the Colosseum in a new light, as an ancient structure filled with more shadows than shuffling feet, where the shady history of this spectacular arena can truly be appreciated. Our tour starts with Trajan’s Column, moving past Piazza Venezia and up Michelangelo’s staircase to reach the Campidoglio. We find a lesser known vantage point over the Roman Forum before heading through the heart of Ancient Rome towards the might Colosseum.
Once inside, the Colosseum will be virtually empty, and you’ll experience it at is eeriest as your guide regales you with the history and stories that make this structure come alive. The highlight of the tour is when we head underground treading the tunnels that gladiators and beasts walked before being hoisted onto the arena floor via trap doors. Few visitors have the opportunity to visit the Colosseum underground, and fewer still see it at night, making this peaceful, spooky visit even more exceptional.
