Italy With Us gives you the opportunity to take one of the most exciting and fascinating tours of ancient Rome available. We offer you the experience of seeing the Colosseum from a unique perspective. Not only will you get a tour of the main arena, you will also be allowed to scour the depths of the Dungeons and lower levels as well gaining an unrivaled view of the arena and its surroundings from the restricted upper levels of the Colosseum. Also included are tours of other key archaeological sites such as the Roman forum and Palatine hill.
This all-inclusive tour is subject to limited availability, with only very few reservations permitted on a weekly basis. The Dungeons and Upper levels are restricted areas where ordinary Colosseum tours are not allowed access. Down in the Dungeons and lower-levels of the Colosseum you will gain a terrifying insight into the quarters which were use to house slaves and wild beasts before they were brought to the arena, and almost certain death...You will come to understand the complex network of pulleys, levers and platforms which were used to raise man and beast alike to the arena above.
From there, the tour moves on towards the Upper levels of the Colosseum. These upper levels, like the dungeons were previously off-limits, but are now open subject to special reservation. Our expert tour-guides will show you the steep seating where the lower members of society (women, slaves etc) were forced to sit. Fortunately now, these levels offer the best view in the house, both of the arena itself and surrounding sites.
