Magica Rome Colosseum Night Tour - short description

About Rome Colosseum Night Tour 

If you wish to experience the Colosseum without the maddening rush of crowds, then book your tour now. The tour starts with Michelangelo – he designed the Campidoglio, which is one of the most exquisite squares in Rome, located just outside the Capitoline Museums. From there, your guide will lead you to a viewing point where, as dusk falls into evening, you will be able to view the historic centre of Rome all the way to the sanctuary of the Vestal Virgins who in the past kept the fires burning for the prosperity and security of Rome. You will also be able to view the ruins of temples and arches. See if you can spot Trajan’s Column as well as Ceaser’s Forum further down the hill. The tour then heads to the Colosseum and visiting the Colosseum at night is very different from the day. There is an air of mystery as your guide leads you to the underbelly, the underground part of the Colosseum where you will learn about the trapdoors, tunnels and passages and imagine what it was like for the inhabitants below as they waited for their fate above.

About Rome Colosseum Night Tour - long description


The tour begins on the platform right in front of Trajan’s Column, which is on Via Dei Fori Imperiali nearby Piazza Venezia. When facing the Victor Emmanuel II Monument, it’s directly to the left across the street. A tour coordinator will be waiting there wearing either a blue jacket or polo shirt with the City Wonders logo printed on it. By taxi: Ask the driver to drive you to Piazza Foro Traiano. As you enter the Piazza, you’ll see the 30m high Trajan’s Column and go up the steps on the nearby platform. The meeting time is 15 minutes before the start of the tour.

The ultimate Colosseum Tour Experience


I saw the Colosseum in the past, and I have always marveled at Roman architecture and ingenuity. Because of this, I wanted to experience a different twist, so I opted for the night tour. This kind of tour is rather new. It was a very nice experience to see this landmark in a different light. Highly recommended!
