Eco-sustainable tourism, designed to respect and support local culture, art and traditions

Your LivTours Private Colosseum at Night Tour with Underground & Arena Floor Access begins when you meet your guide and fellow travelers at the bottom of the steps of Piazza del Campidoglio. This centrally located meeting point offers spectacular views.  After introducing themselves, your guide will give you an introduction to the tour, and a quick walk later, you will be outside the oldest public museum in the world – the Capitoline Museums.  Here is where you can find the replica of the Statue of Marcus Aurelius on his horse which is an impressive 14 feet tall. In the evening, this piazza comes to life with the subtle glow of the street lighting of this eternally beautiful city. Just around the corner, you will find the Roman Forum and Caesar’s Forum offering a view that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Get your cameras ready as the golden evenings in Rome give this gorgeous capital city the perfect glow.  Your guide will lead you and your small group towards the Colosseum. Keep your eyes open for the glimpses of a light show which displays along the walls of the Augustus Forum and Trajan Forum. This light show was created by some of the most prominent Roman theater lighting designers.

Enjoy the luxury of LivTours VIP night entrance into the, now calm, Colosseum. Once inside the Colosseum, you will get to enjoy two areas that are otherwise closed to the public as your assigned custodian opens restricted gates exclusively for this tour.

Your first stop will be the Colosseum arena – stand in the very place where gladiators once fought their final battle. Imagine yourself standing on the very arena floor with only a limited LivTours groups in sight. Enjoy the special moment without the crowds.

Now it is time for you to head underground and visit the Colosseum dungeons – this is another restricted Colosseum area that once was filled with cages and even mechanical elevators, gladiator rooms, and prisons. Here is where the battle tales you have only read about really come to life – this time by moonlight!

This is the perfect tour for travelers who want to see the Colosseum at its best during the evening hours.

Great way to see the Colosseum

"We booked the Colosseum Underground Small-Group Night Tour. Giulia was our guide and she was excellent. I highly recommend this tour. Being at Colosseum in the evening when it wasn't crowded was great and we got to take some awesome pictures. Brought home lifetime memories."

Great tour

"Laura S our guide was pleasant, knowledgable, engaging and fun. Despite the rainy weather and the crowds, she was able to navigate the challenges without difficulty and make sure that we thoroughly enjoyed our time together. She helped bring Ancient Rome to life for us. We were thrilled to have been booked with her through Livitaly."
