Description

Not all Colosseum secrets are accessible with a regular ticket or tour. Visiting the Colosseum underground and third ring requires a licensed guide and a special reservation. But you are in luck! Our tour of Underground and the Belvedere of the Colosseum offers a full experience.


It kicks off in the dungeons of this mighty amphitheater with an exploration of the mysterious underground tunnels. This is where the gladiators prepared for the impossible fights ahead; where caged lions and tigers waited before entering the arena through trap doors Next, you will walk down the Via Sacra of the Roman Forum and follow up to the first and second levels of the amphitheater. At last, you will access the third level which closed in the 1970s and is solely accessible as part of a VIP Colosseum guided tour. It's absolutely worth it as it gives you an astounding birds-eye view of the ancient Forum, the arch of Constantine, and the monuments of Rome.

History Sneak Peek

Colosseum sits east of the Roman Forum. It was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian around 70 AD, a tool to keep the masses happy and entertained. 


Colosseum and Gladiator Battles


Roman emperors used it to organize grand spectacles including gladiator battles and wild animal fights. The underground pathways (Ipogei), served to prepare gladiators for battle and shelter the wild beasts they had to fight. Both men and animals waited here for their turn before taking part in the violent, bloody spectacle.


Colosseum on Decline


Nonetheless, after around four centuries of active use, it fell into neglect. The partial destruction of the structure by a strong earthquake was the last drop. Still, the Romans found a use for it. The rubble from the collapsed facade was used as building material for numerous new buildings around the city.


Roman Forum


Roman Forum, on the other hand, was once Rome's bustling marketplace, its business district, and civic center. A former marshland, Romans had to drain the area to make it useable. It became the epicenter of the city's political and social activity.


There is so much more to tell but ee won't bombards you with more details.
