What you'll do

Exklusive private VIP-Tour Colosseum, Forum Romanum & Palatin Hill. Private Hotel pick up.

Behold the mighty Colosseum, one of history’s most iconic buildings! Of course, with such prestige comes hordes of tourists. But, this priority-entrance ticket lets you bypass the plebs, like a modern-day Roman dignitary, with your private guide explore the Colosseum, and then access the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill.Emperors Vespasian and Titus built the Colosseum from 72-80 C.E – or, to be accurate, thousands of their slaves did. It functioned as an amphitheater where Romans of all classes could come and be entertained by gory games. During its heydey, 80,000 people would cram into it, but today, the Colosseum has to settle for 3,000 selfie stick-wielding tourists.

Gladiators would be pitted against lions, you could watch a good old-fashioned hunt, or even an execution. Occasionally, rich families would rent the venue for private religious ceremonies, known as a munera, to show off their power. Ready for this experiemce?

The Colosseum, Italian: Colosseo is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy, just east of the Roman Forum. It is the largest ancient amphitheatre ever built, and is still the largest standing amphitheatre in the world today, despite its age. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian (r. 69–79 AD) in 72 and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir, Titus (r. 79–81). Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (r. 81–96).[3] The three emperors that were patrons of the work are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named the Flavian Amphitheatre (Latin: Amphitheatrum Flavium; Italian: Anfiteatro Flavio by later classicists and archaeologists for its association with their family name (Flavius).[citation needed]

The Colosseum is built of travertine limestone, tuff (volcanic rock), and brick-faced concrete. The Colosseum could hold an estimated 50,000 to 80,000 spectators at various points in its history having an average audience of some 65,000 it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles including animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Roman mythology, and briefly mock sea battles. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine.

Although substantially ruined because of earthquakes and stone-robbers (for spolia), the Colosseum is still an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome and was listed as one of the New7Wonders of the World. It is one of Rome's most popular tourist attractions and also has links to the Roman Catholic Church, as each Good Friday the Pope leads a torchlit "Way of the Cross" procession that starts in the area around the Colosseum.
