Tour details

Our best-selling tour! The Colosseum Underground and Arena floor are some of the most fascinating and brilliant sites you will ever see in Rome. Discover all the facets that these structures conceal, how they were built, what their purpose was, and who their protagonists were. The way the Romans designed these underpaths will blow your mind... 

The glorious Arena, which was home for shows on water and sand, was famous for hosting extremely dramatic and cruel shows. Be amazed by how far the Emperor would go to make these shows most fascinating for his audience.   

The Colosseum Underground and Arena can easily be considered some of the most important constructions for politics and entertainment for many centuries. Filled with tunnels and walls, some still standing from the Roman times, these areas will allow you to dive deep into the past and understand how the Emperor communicated his power to his people, through battles and shows, and how the Romans spent their leisure time.

Enjoy the spectacular views into the city from the Emperor's Palace and enjoy wandering around these amazing historical areas.


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.

Customer reviews


Friday, May 18, 2018
My wife and I decided to book a private tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum to help enrich the experience and we were very pleased with Crown Tours. Brent was our tour guide-- he was extremely knowledgable, took the time to explain everything and answer all our questions. We learned more in 3 hours than we ever imagined we would. Best tour we've had in Italy, we are so happy with our experience we are going to use them for the Vatican tour as well. Prices are very reasonable compared to some of the other quotes we received, and the personal experience Brent provided made the final cost feel like a steal.
