Tour Description

Book our Attic Colosseum Tour and visit the top tiers of the Colosseum!

Our Attic Colossem Tour offers you the unique chance to explore some breathtaking areas of the Colosseum, restricted to most visitors. 

One of our expert tour guides will pick you up at your hotel and you’ll reach the Colosseum together. 

1. Attic Colosseum Tour

Here, you will have exclusive skip-the-line tickets that will allow you to get on a glass elevator.

You will reach the 3rd tier, and enjoy a walk through come very well-preserved parts of the building. 

Then, you will climb to the 4th and, if you are not scared of heights, even to the 5th tier, the highest reachable point. 

The panorama is unique, and it offers a 360º view of the whole area. 

You will also explore the second and first floors so that you can fully experience the most famous building in Rome. 

Your guide will tell you about the gladiators’ combats, the hunting games, and the executions. You will learn about the incredible Roman building technique, and your guide will help you understand how the Romans managed to build such an impressive building in only 8 years. 

But, that is not the end of it: actually, it’s just the start of our Attic Colosseum tour. 

2. The Palatine Hill

After the Amphitheater, your Attic Colosseum Tour will continue with a tour of the Palatine Hill, the most important of the seven hills of Rome.

This is where Romulus founded Rome over 2700 years ago, and where he killed his brother Remus for violating the sacred boundary of the newly founded City.

You will explore the monumental ruins of the imperial palace, and learn about the life and death of some of the emperors, who ruled over the empire from the top of this gorgeous hill. 

3. The Roman Forum

The last stop of your Attic Colosseum Tour is the Roman Forum, the heart of Ancient Rome. 

Even if the Colosseum is the most famous building in Rome, the Forum was the most important part of the city. 

The Roman Forum was the center of Roman politics, justice administration, and religion. It was truly the core of the empire.  

The Forum is where the most important Roman characters lived or did memorable things. 

This is where Julius Caesar was cremated, where Cicero gave his memorable speeches, and where Mark Anthony read the will of Caesar. 

The Forum is full of iconic Roman buildings, such as the Arch of Titus, the Temple of Julius Caesar, the Temple of Vesta, the Senate House, and many others. 

It’s the perfect place to end your ancient Roman experience.

    Italian ArtVentures' Feedbacks

    Above & Beyond

    We were amazed by the service we received in Rome and even in Benevento. Giovanni went above and beyond to organize tours and transportation for our family of 15 traveling. Massimo was an incredible and knowledgeable tour guide in Rome. He made it fun for the kids and knew when to take a break. Provided water and an amazing lunch spot for us all. We still are talking about some of the stories he told us. Stefano met us at the train in Benevento and was only supposed to drive us through San Bartolomeo, my father's hometown. But he pulled up my father's and grandfather's genealogy and found some interesting facts that were amazing to find out. He printed and laminated it for us to take. It was an emotional day but such a wonderful part of the trip. The minibus was perfect for everyone to fit comfortably and head over to Almafi. Thank you Giovanni and your amazing staff for making this trip one of the most memorable trips ever!!!

    Giovanni was so exceptional at his job that you left the trip feeling torn between wanting to tell the World and also keeping him a best kept secret. Everything that he had orchestrated happened, seamlessly for us as if he had choreographed the entire country of Italy to show up, act, behave on queue. I put together a lot of trips, all over the world, for a group of around 20 friends each adventure. As the chief coordinator, you are always a little concerned about third party tours and tour guides: will everyone show up, is this a scam, can they speak English? Giovanni had infinite patience answering my questions and provided so much detail about our adventure, that everyone knew what to expect ahead of time. He took into consideration everyone’s interest, abilities and aptitudes. We saw a side of Italy that felt intimate and entertaining. There are not enough stars in the galaxy to award him.
    Great Experience!

    What a great experience for me and my family to have these private tours planned by Giovanni. We wanted a curated set of events during our time in Rome and Florence and Gio delivered such a wonderful set of activities to suit my husband and I and our two teenagers. Each of the four days was a memorable experience. Alex was so fantastic and I would recommend him highly- we had one our best meals with him just learning from him and having great conversation. Andres in Florence was a blast and incredibly connected to the history of the area, just a wealth of information so much so that we are definitely coming back to Florence to spend more time. Caterina walked us through the Roman ruins and the Colosseum which was awe inspiring. And, one of the best things we did which I highly recommend is a pasta making class with Romina. We learned to make two dishes with her and then ate the food we had prepared. Such a great way to spend our time connecting to Roma. Thank you Gio and to all our guides! We will cherish our memories made together.
    Thank you!

    Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend Italian ArtVentures. We decided to use a private tour company, rather than the cruise ship excursions, and we were not disappointed. Giovanni was excellent at planning. We booked a tour in Rome and Pompeii. Giovanni was able to customize a tour that was special to us, so we could visit the LDS temple. Maria was our guide at the Vatican. She was fun, smart, and thoughtful. She translated for us as needed and was able to answer all of our questions. One major bonus of having a tour guide is skipping the line for St. Peter's Basilica. Our driver was awesome, traveling quickly and safely. The van was new, clean, and comfortable. We asked for a restaurant recommendation, and Giovanni made us reservations for Amalfi. It was incredible. The next day, we went to Pompeii with Stefano. He was fantastic. He made sure we saw the highlights and we avoided the crowds because of his expertise in the area. Booking was simple, communication was excellent, the cost was well worth what you get. This company is very professional. Totally awesome experience!
    Perfect Tour

    Truly outstanding experience visiting the Vatican with Maria! She was the perfect guide - knowledgable, smart, funny, passionate about the subject matter. She had a deep knowledge of the art, architecture, history, and the religious significance of the whole area, and gave us thoughtful, interesting commentary throughout our tour. Although she seemed to have a bottomless knowledge of everything, she also knew how to present the information in a way that was considered, insightful, and crucially, not too overwhelming for us. As we walked, she called attention to many things, some big, others details that could easily be missed. She was well prepared, but also brilliant at answering questions and flexible about following our interests. Several times she pointed out a small detail, then drew a connection back to it later in the tour. She knew the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, courtyard and Basilica like the back of her hand, steering us to less crowded routes and perfect viewing vantages. One of us is Catholic, and one of us loves art, and Maria brilliantly held both our interests throughout the tour. Highly Recommend!
