The Colosseum


The world’s largest Roman amphitheatre, the Colosseum, is Rome’s most visited attraction, built nearly 2000 years ago with a seating capacity of 45,000. Spectators flocked to see gladiator fights, animal hunts, battle re-enactments and mythology plays. Learn about its bloodthirsty history from an expert guide and avoid the queue battles by taking a tour with priority entry which is combined with a visit to another historical site like the Roman Forum - ancient seat of government and commerce, or VIP tickets to Caesar’s Palace, home of the Emperor Augustus.

48 hour City Sightseeing packages include VIP entry to the Colosseum, and also the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel.  If you’re short of time, the Colosseum and Vatican Museums are included on the Rome In A Day tour, which takes you around all the top sights of the city with fast track entry, and includes a free gelato!

For those without much time to see Rome, we’ve combined two of our best-selling tours into one; to introduce you to all of Rome’s most important sights in a single day. Our Rome In A Day Tour distills the very essence of Roman history, culture, art, and architecture into a single day of immersive travel. Our expert guides will take you from the ancient roots of the Eternal City to the very height of its empire while giving you the stories and anecdotes that bring the epic tale to life. We start at the Colosseum, bypassing the long lines with all-inclusive tickets that bring you straight into the ancient world’s greatest sports arena.

Your guide will give you the harrowing tails of gladiators and martyrs that have made the Colosseum famous and also explain their political and social importance to ancient Romans. Next you’ll stroll over to the Roman Forum to learn how it functioned as the beating heart of Rome’s all-encompassing empire. Instead of slogging through the crowds inside the Forum (we don’t have much time, after all!) your guide will lead you to a stunning overlook.

From there you cant take in the entire Forum including the Senate House, and Temple of the Vestal Virgins. It will be easy to imagine how the Forum must have appeared 2,000 years ago as you hear the stories of war, politics, economics, and
religion that shaped the ancient city. No walk through ancient Rome is complete without stepping into the Pantheon. This nearly 2,000-year-old building has the largest un-reinforced concrete dome in the world. As you goggle up at it from inside, you’ll hear the story of how it was built and why it has inspired so many other buildings, from St. Peter’s Basilica to the U.S. Capitol Building. 

Jumping ahead in history, you’ll be treated to a delicious gelato as you stroll through streets made famous by films like “Roman Holiday”, stopping at the Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona for a few glamorous photo ops. After a break for lunch your local expert will accompany you in a taxi or a bus to the Vatican just to make sure you don’t have any transport issues. Once you’ve skipped the long lines of people waiting to get in with your all-inclusive ticket you’ll meet your Vatican expert and delve into one of the world’s greatest collections of art. Our specially-curated Vatican tour highlights the best works in the huge (some might say “overwhelming”) collections and give you a road understanding and appreciation of what you’re seeing. Along the way we’ll take in the sculpture galleries, and the world-famous ‘Laocoön Group’. 

The day ends contemplating Michelangelo’s frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. From there you can choose between extending your stay in the chapel a nd the Vatican Museums, or skip the lines and enter St. Peter’s Basilica directly from the Sistine Chapel. We recommend that you follow your guide since it will save you a walk of 30 - 40 minutes and, during busy times, over an hour of waiting in line. With a group of 15 people or fewer, an expert local guide and no time wasted waiting in lines this tour guarantees unfettered access to Rome’s greatest historical and cultural treasures. If you only have a day to see it all, this is the ultimate tour to experience the epic grandeur of the Eternal City.

Important Information:

There is a new rule at the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill that only small backpacks and regular-size handbags are allowed inside. Guests with larger bags will not be allowed to enter (there are no storage facilities) and all guests must now pass through a security check before entering the Colosseum.

The Colosseum has changed its admission policy to ensure that only 3,000 people are allowed within the amphitheater at any given time, meaning much less crowding during busy periods. Although our tickets are pre-booked with Skip the Line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. In all, it should make for a much nicer experience for all (and longer general access lines!).

This tour combines our morning “Best Of Rome – Colosseum & City Highlights” tour and our afternoon “Vatican Highlights - Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel” Vatican tour. It also includes a fresh-made, free Italian gelato, and transportation by taxi from the city center to the Vatican. All at a more convenient price than just buying the two aforementioned tours separately!

St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine Chapel are holy places and thus, the attire must be appropriate for the visit. Both men and women are asked to wear clothing that covers at least the shoulders and knees. Walks of Italy cannot be held responsible for denied entry due to improper dress. Please note that, since the chapel is at the end of the Vatican visit, it is sufficient to bring extra coverings with you and put them on before our entrance to the Vatican.

Your tour will end in St. Peter's Basilica where you will have skip the line entrance to get inside, though there is no guided explanation inside the church.

Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for a senior, student, or child reduction.

IMPORTANT: While the Vatican Museums are equipped with elevators for wheelchair access, they are not conveniently located on the regular tour route and only give access to specific sections of the Museums.
