While visiting this area, your guide will reveal these and many other incredible details about the long lost days of the Colosseum.
After the Arena Floor, go on a journey to the Colosseum’s first and second levels. See where Emperors sat and learn the rules of the gladiatorial games for both competitors and spectators. Learn why the ancient amphitheater was named the Colosseum and more.
