What you can expect
Explore ancient Rome’s most iconic landmarks at your own pace with skip-the-line tickets to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Bypass the long lines, access areas most tours aren’t allowed to see, and take your time investigating this symbol of Roman culture from top to bottom.
Your ticket allows you privileged entry through the Gladiator’s Gate: the ‘stage door’ of the Colosseum, not generally open to the public. The gate leads you directly onto the partially reconstructed Arena Floor, where gladiators performed in wild hunts and deadly duels for the entertainment of a blood-thirsty crowd.
From the Arena Floor, you’ll have a perfect view of where the Emperor’s box once stood and an up-close look at the Colosseum’s Underground: the backstage area where gladiators prepared themselves for battle. Of course, you also have access to the more public areas of the Colosseum, including the tiers of stands where audiences hungrily awaited the violent spectacles staged for their pleasure.
Take your time exploring or continue to the nearby Roman Forum, where your ticket lets you skip the line. The Forum is another place where all walks of Roman life crossed paths, from traders and soldiers to Vestal Virgins.
