About Colosseum Private Tour

    For an exclusive and unforgettable experience of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, a private tour of the Colosseum is the ideal choice. With the expertise of a professional tour guide, your time in ancient Rome will be well spent and you will come away not only with a deeper understanding of ancient Rome but an entirely new appreciation for the ancient Romans and their way of life.


    This private tour includes skip-the-line access to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. During this 3 hour tour you will see the major highlights of the monuments as well as the hidden details of the site that most visitors miss. With just yourself and a local guide, you will truly have a VIP experience of the Colosseum like no other.


    The beauty of choosing a private tour of the Colosseum lies not only in the depth of knowledge you will receive but in the flexibility of the itinerary. The tour can be tailored to your needs and the guide can spend more time in areas that you find particularly interesting. A Colosseum private tour is a great option for families with children that are studying the Ancient Roman Empire as well as for those with limited mobility that might fall behind during a group tour.


    For visitors that are keen to visit the Colosseum’s restricted areas, a private tour can also accompany you to the Colosseum Arena Floor or Colosseum Underground (the underground portion may be presented by a Colosseum staff member). With a private guide, the tour of the Colosseum is a relaxing and enjoyable experience. You won’t have to worry about large groups or waiting on other travelers.


    Taking a private tour of the Colosseum is a wonderful way to explore the hidden treasures of Ancient Rome and its history at your own pace!
