Experience the thrill of a real insider’s view seeing the little cells where the gladiators warmed up before the fight, the animals’ cages and spectacular wood elevator allowed fighters to literally jump up onto the Arena floor from below. Learn the details of the Colosseum’s enthralling, and brutal, history: what mainly excited the crowds were the fights between gladiators, frequently slaves, criminals or prisoners of war fighting for rich prizes or their freedom.

Among these you will see Titus’ arch, the temple of Saturn, Vespasian and Antoninus Pius, temples, basilicas and vibrant public spaces which will lead you straight into the daily life and customs of 2000 years ago.
