The Colosseum basement is a VIP restricted area due to record demand. It's been coming since before the pandemic and is now a difficult place to reach. There are dozens of offers out there, but prices are either sky high or availability lower than low.

 This is a fully guided "under the stars" tour that delivers the de facto Colosseum Underground experience.

 Let's begin at the beginning. The days of booking a standard "small group" walking tour of the Colosseum have long gone. Either DIY or go underground. There is no middle ground.

 The reality is that it takes just half an hour for any real person guide, audioguide, or some other type of guide to deliver satisfactory information about the most important areas of the arena, and that's that.

 It's common knowledge that the most sought-after places are Colosseum Arena Floor and the hypogeum, the latter space being precisely where you will wander on Machinery of Death. Share air with legions of lost souls and long dead gladiators!

 As you will already know, having read through our Colosseum † Combat Level View, we are way ahead of other tour operators as regards how to experience the Colosseum. This is the only guided Colosseum tour we offer and you need to take it.

 The bowels of the Colosseum will disorientate and disturb. Many travellers want to feel what they saw in the movie Gladiator for real, and on this subterranean safari through an actual underworld, we deliver.

 Walk where combatants prepared to kill or be killed. Stand where wild animals were hoisted up to shred flesh. Female gladiators castrated limbless dwarves, elephants crushed those in death throes, and mock sea battles were played out, as were hunting seasons. Body counts were huge and nothing was off limits.

 If you want your Colosseum experience to surpass all expectations, this is it.




 Rated 5 / 5 by Ginny M on May 6th, 2023  What a tour. 12 people with us and NO other groups anywhere to be found inside the Colosseum. I don't know if we were just lucky but it seemed as though we had the entire Colosseum and underground to ourselves. A simply sensational tour! Eternal Tours Rome is a sleeping giant in Rome that's for sure and my new favourite partner for Colosseum tours as i'm a travel agent.
