Tour details

Leave those crowds behind and skip the queue with group & private tours of the unmissable Colosseum experience. Explore the inside of one of the world's greatest attractions that’s waiting for you here in Rome.

Join a group tour or private tour of the Colosseum and let one of our expert English-speaking guides educate and amaze you with facts you can’t wait to share with friends at home and memorable tales of the glorious gladiatorial games you’ll never forget.

The Colosseum in Rome had over 80 entrances and could accommodate around 50,000 spectators. Learn the history behind this magnificent monument and all that surrounds it. Rome's most popular structure was built for three reasons... As a gift to the Roman Citizens from the Flavian Dynasty to increase their popularity, to stage various forms of entertainment, and of course to showcase Roman engineering techniques to the world. Festivals as well as games could last up to 100 days in the Colosseum. Your Crown Tour Guide will walk you through the Colosseum explaining the true brilliance behind the engineering of this structure. Listen to our Tour Guides' tales of the gladiators that so gallantly entertained hundreds of people.

Palatine Hill & Roman Forum

Your tour will then lead you on a journey through the Palatine Hill & Roman Forum where you will be able to admire the incredible ruins, and enjoy panoramic views of the Colosseum. 

The Roman Forum was the social, political, religious and financial centre of the Roman Empire and the most incredible site of Ancient Roman civilization with various structures still standing. All layers of Roman society rubbed shoulders together daily whether for personal, business or political purposes, anyone from homeless beggars to rich senators could be found there. 

The Palatine Hill is the foundation point of Rome and still holds today, many layers of history. You can find ruins from the early kingdom of Rome in 7th century BCE and the Roman Republic in the later centuries BCE to the jaw dropping palace of the Emperor Domitian in the Imperial Age. Further, you can see the more recent presence of the Farnese family during the Renaissance and that of Mussolini in the 20th century. 

Picture perfect moments that are not to be missed when visiting the Eternal City, Rome.


Please note that your ID is required at the entrance. Guests who show up without an ID will not be able to access the areas of the Colosseum. No suitcase compartment is available.

Meeting point: At the green kiosk just outside the Colosseum Metro station (downstairs exit). You will be looking for our representative holding a purple "Crown Tours" sign.

I came to Rome on a girls trip with my sister and best friend. Christian approached us and offered us a tour at the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. I'm so glad we took him up on it! We were a small group so Christian was able to tailor the information in a way that his audience would really enjoy. He shared with us a lot of knowledge about the history of the buildings, asked us questions and pointed out details we would have otherwise looked over. After the tour was over we spent another two hours wandering around the Forum, reminding each other of all the facts Christian had given us, making it so much more enjoyable. We loved it so much, we signed up for a tour the next day at the Vatican! Great price, great guide, totally worth it.

Although the Roman forum and palantine hill remains are amazing to look at. An expert guide like Christian really brings them to life. He certainly helps you use your imagination through comparisons of every day life and pictures of what the forum would of looked like. Small intimate groups for very reasonable price. Did not feel like a boring history lesson either as was interactive, upbeat and interesting. Christian (tour guide) had excellent English so never felt lost during his tour.
