Step back in time in Italy – Private Tours of the Colosseum
Located just east of the Roman Forum, the massive stone amphitheater known as the Colosseum was commissioned around A.D. 70-72 by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty as a gift to the Roman people. In A.D. 80, Vespasian’s son Titus opened the Colosseum. At that time, the Colosseum was known as the Flavian Amphitheater. The games that took place where, gladiatorial combats and wild animal fights. After four centuries of active use, the magnificent arena fell into neglect, and up until the 18th century it was used as a source of building materials. Though two-thirds of the original Colosseum has been destroyed over time, the amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history.
The general public has limited access to the Colosseum when touring. However, CaribbeanDays has private tours that will bring small groups to places that are not available to the general public.
On our small group tours, guests will experience the highlights of ancient Rome in one day. From the Colosseum, to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Within the Colosseum you will explore the underground (Hypogeum) as well as the Belvedere (top tiers floors on the 5th floor!). Your guide will accompany you throughout the entire tour.
The private guides that take our guests on tour are knowledgeable story tellers. Guests will be walked through the ancient city and back through time. Guests won’t wait in any lines, and the tours will be without huge crowds.
