TOUR COLOSSEUM BY NIGHT
Discover the beauty of the symbol of Rome under a different light.
Thanks to new, extraordinary night openings, you can experience something unforgettable under the suggestive nocturnal lightening of the galleries and the internal arches of the Colosseum. The tour also covers the underground area of the building.
Nearly 2000 years later, the Colosseum, the monument that represents Rome and the Roman Empire, still amazes millions of people who come to visit it from all over the world. Your tour stars directly from the arena, the heart of the monument and the best spot to admire the majesty of the Colosseum. Here our guides, well versed in archaeology and art history, will outline the events that took place in the arena and they will tell you all about the audience of these events. You will learn about circus games, such as “venationes” (hunts of exotic animals), “noxii” (the executions of the condemned performed by wild animals) and “munera” (gladiatorial combats). The tour goes on in the underground area, where gladiators and wild animals waited for the fights to begin, explaining how the technical apparatus which lifted men and animals worked.
