Your LivTours Semi-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.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
