Access the Colosseum by Evening

For the first time in ages, access to the arena floor area recently opened on a very limited basis. On this special Dark Rome tour, you will hear the tales of Ancient Roman civilization as you stand on the arena floor, you will see the entire Colosseum from a gladiator’s viewpoint and imagine what it was like nearly 2,000 years ago, full of screaming spectators. Dark Rome's access to restricted areas will make your Colosseum visit spectacular – something few people can experience!

Avoid the crowds with our special evening Colosseum tour, visiting this iconic sight after most tour groups and visitors have gone home and when it is cooler outside.

Before visiting the Colosseum you'll walk through Via dei Fori Imperiali where you will be able to overlook the Roman Forum. As the light fades, your expert, English-speaking guide will provide you with a detailed overview of the origin of Rome's historic center – pointing out temples, arches and the sanctuary of Ancient Rome’s famous Vestal Virgins.

Avoid the Crowds and Bask in Rome's History

Our special evening Colosseum tour has a group size of 20 people or less so that you can easily interact with your guide. Join us on this special tour where you will avoid the crowds, stay cooler in the evening, and experience one of Rome's most famous monuments.
