    Colosseum Under the Moon


    Our Nighttime Colosseum Tour, "Colosseum Under the Moon" will make your trip to Rome unforgettable. A great opportunity to take in the splendor of Rome in the evening, finishing up with a magical Moonlight Colosseum Guided Tour.


    We will take you on a comprehensive walking tour of the principle attractions in the environs of the Ancient Roman Forum and Colosseum. After meeting up for a quick drink to get to know your guide, you will be given a brief intro to the area. Then you will enjoy a relaxed walk along the world-famous Via Fori Imperiali and take peek at Trajan's Market and the Roman Forum. We then enter the Colosseum and we will spend over an hour looking in-depth at one of the most imposing and impressive archaeological sites in the world.


    If you choose our Forum & Colosseum by Night tour, you will start with a visit the Roman Forum without the crowds, noise and heat. Your small group will be transported back in time by one of our expert guides. You will visit some of the most interesting parts of the Roman Forum which will be lit up for this very special evening.


    Due to restorations, the Arena floor will be closed from 28th August until 10th September. Unfortunately we will not be able to include the Arena as part of your Colosseum Under the Moon tour during this period.

  • Rome

    Colosseum, Dungeons & Upper Ring plus Ancient Rome


    Come with us on a guided VIP tour of the Colosseum, with access to areas previously inaccessible to the public, taking you into the very heart of this most recognisable of stadia. Italy With Us offer you the opportunity to see the Colosseum from top to bottom, literally, from the Dungeons to the Upper levels and famous arena. Your tour guide will bring this immense arena to back life with outrageous tales that will shock and amaze. You will also visit the Palatine Hill and Forum. 


    If you choose our VIP Tour, enjoy a private tour of the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum with one of our friendly mother tongue guides. You will then join the rest of the party for the Dungeons, Arena and Upper Ring in a group with 24 people maximum. Enjoy Exclusive Access, as our group will be the only people allowed into the lower and upper levels of the Colosseum!


    Due to restorations, the Arena floor will be closed from 28th August until 10th September. Unfortunately we will not be able to include the Arena as part of your tour during this period.


    Due to new security procedures, when entering the Colosseum you may experience unexpected queues and baggage inspections.


    There is no wheelchair access on this tour due to ancient areas with limited accessibility.

    Great Art, kept all to yourself - The Telegraph
