Rome (Civitavecchia) Colosseum Excursion Reviews

Rome's Colosseum, once home to brutal gladiatorial combat, is the largest amphitheater ever built in the Roman Empire. One of the new seven wonders of the world, this famous feat of architecture is not to be missed.
They should actually let you spend more than 22 minutes in the Colosseum.
They should actually let you spend more than 22 minutes in the Colosseum. We visited Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, The Roman Forum and The Colusseum...for 22 minutes. The name was very deceiving.

Amazing tour. Our guide was excellent and brought history to life. You could close your eyes and almost hear the roar of the crowd as the Gladiators entered the arena.

Visiting the Roman Coliseum was great. Once there, we arranged for our own guided tour for an additional cost. It was a great tour and allowed us to see more of the coliseum with an additional historical narrative.

Amazed at the ingenuity of the Romans in building it. Imagine having a floor raise up from the lower level to present the gladiators. Tunnels and canvas awning that stretched over the stands to protect the viewers from the heat.

Viator - Rome in a Day – this is actually two half day tours, morning at the Vatican and afternoon at the Colosseum; due to transportation issues, we were late for the Vatican group tour, but we called the tour company and were provided our Vatican museum tickets to explore on our own with a non-guided group an hour later; on our own for lunch and a cab ride to the Colosseum, then we met the Colosseum group for the afternoon tour; skip the line tickets are highly recommended, but the guide was very slow and we ended up turning in our headsets to explore on our own before catching our ride back to the ship Read Less
