What to expect

The mighty Colosseum is the most beautiful and mysterious at night. This guided night tour includes the Roman Forum, seen from the bird’s eye view from the Campidoglio, as well as other sites of Ancient Rome.

The tour starts with Trajan’s Column where you’ll pass through Via dei Fori Imperiali overlooking the Roman Forum (closed at this hour), the civic historical center. Once home to a bustling marketplace, ruled by moneylenders and shopkeepers, this was Rome at its finest. As the light fades, your professional English-speaking guide will talk you through the heart and history of Rome’s historic center, pointing out the temples, arches, and the sanctuary of Ancient Rome’s famous Vestal Virgins.

As you continue your walk, your guide will point out Caesar’s and Augustus’ Forums, among other ruins. As you walk past the Forums you will come to the highlight of the tour – the Roman Colosseum. At this time of night, the Colosseum is virtually empty and your guide will lead you around, telling stories about the history and people that once tread on the same ground. You will roam the arena floor where you will gain a better understanding of the magnitude of Ancient Rome’s greatest amphitheater. Unfortunately, you won't get to visit the Underground on this tour but you'll get to see the newly discovered graffiti.

    Everything was perfect! The timing of the 7 PM trip to the Colosseum is a great time to go. No crowds whatsoever. But beyond that Christina our guide ...
