Colosseum night tour casts a spell on its onlookers. But the magic is not the only reason you should consider this tour! The largest Roman amphitheater is one of the most visited landmarks in Rome. During the day, the place is bustling with tourists. Crowds on the outside, crowds on the inside! A nighttime ticket to Colosseum tours lets you free yourself of the masses. At night, there will only be a couple of hundred visitors walking halls in awe, instead of the regular 3000 people.
Furthermore, visiting the Colosseum at night means no waiting in line to get inside. The only ones waiting will be the waiters while you enjoy a tasty Italian Aperitivo. Our expert guide will be by your side each step of the way! By the flickering lights, he or she will revive the past with stories of epic fights and bizarre practices. The nighttime atmosphere might even leave you a little spooked! A cherry on top? Our guide will also point out and take you to the best spots to snap that ideal picture of the Colosseum at night.
Is this the best night tour of the Colosseum with fast-track ticket or what? Well, we will let you be the judge of that!
The mighty Colosseum and ancient Rome are inseparable. You can’t talk about one without the other. It stands east of the Roman Forum, and even half-ruined it continues to awe its every visitor.
The structure was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian around 70 AD; a successful attempt to keep the masses entertained and distracted. The emperors used it to organize all sorts of “games” including gladiator battles and wild animal fights. However, after around four centuries of fame and active use, it fell into neglect; especially after being severely hit by an earthquake. The life went on and the rubble of the fallen facade became a source of building materials for new buildings around the city.
Even if we tried, we can’t possibly sum up the wild and intriguing Colosseum history in two short paragraphs. Better to leave this to our expert guides! After all, it’s so much better to learn while walking the down the dimly lit corridors and listening to a vivid commentary!
There is no point in trying to resist! Rome at night is calling! Book our Colosseum Night Tour with Aperitivo today and turn sightseeing into something better!
Great way to avoid the crowds and see the underground of the Colosseum... night makes it even more impressive, nice aperitivo after.
Good organization. The tour of the Colosseum was fantastic and I think much more enjoyable in the evening, as we were in Rome in the middle of a heat wave. However, you do miss out on a few things in the evening such as the view of the arena. All in all it was a fabulous experience with a great guide but if I was going to see it again, I would choose a cheaper tour without the drinks and nibbles
Excellent guide, interesting tour and tasty food and drink! Recommended
Our Guide Stef was extremely knowledgeable about Colosseums extraordinary history. The tour was very interesting and the atmosphere inside the Colosseum at night is priceless. Lovely aperitivo.
