Ancient Rome and Collosium with Underground, Arena and Upper Tier. Met at 8:15-, walked across the street promptly atb8:30a and then stood for 30 minutes listening to 'icela while awaiting our tour group entry time of approximately 9:00 to go through security and then turned over to the Collesium archeologist (historian) tour guide. The process irritated all. Watched many go straight through to include those without the skip the line tickets.
Underground: begins on arena floor with your group only. Definitely neat being the only ones on the area a floor with all others looking on from the side lines, Excellent view of the uncovered underground. Continued to actual underground to view aqua system, boat pull outs and "elevator" for animal raising. Quite interesting.
Upper tier: gives excellent views of arena floor and surrounding tiers along with the Forum and Pallatine Hill.
Once inside of Colosseum is complete we were turned back over to Micela for the remaining Forum and Pallantine Hill tour. Micela was very good and could have given the inside portion as well if not better than the Colosseum required historian. She was informative and had the personality lacking from the Colosseum required historian.
Recommend: would recommend the above, below and arena tour but would suggest going directly through the Colosseum vice a tied party for a discounted price since you're made to use them anyway. I would then recommend hiring someone for any additional touring you may wish if not comfortable with do it yourself, audio or Rick Steve tours. As for Micela, we would hire her for another tour outside the Colosseum.
