VIP Experiences at the Colosseum

VIP Experiences at the Colosseum

The Colosseum is Rome's best-known icon, so it's a good idea to plan ahead and avoid getting stuck in long entry lines. For the ultimate experience, choose a VIP tour that offers special access and exclusive activities. See below for your options.

Skip-the-Line Tours

The easiest way to make your Colosseum experience more pleasant is to avoid waiting in what can be extremely long lines at the monument's entrance. Some skip-the-line options still require a wait since so many people now book in advance, but group tours go through a different entrance. This means that booking a spot on a guided tour helps you bypass the longer queues and quickly get inside to start exploring.

Combination Tours

Most people who visit the Colosseum have other Roman attractions on their must-see list, and a number of tour options combine skip-the-line entry to the Colosseum with visits to other nearby sights at a discounted rate. Explore the Palatine Hill and the Forum, or opt to stop at less-visited ruins such as the Casa di Augusto and Casa di Livia.

Dinner and a Show

Make an evening of your Colosseum tour. Start with dinner at a rooftop restaurant that overlooks the amphitheater, followed by a nighttime tour of the Colosseum — including the exclusive underground level. If you're more of a morning person, replace dinner with a buffet breakfast overlooking the Forum and then get a tour of the Colosseum through the gladiator's entrance.
