Colosseum, underground level, underneath the arena
People visiting the Colosseum can now walk around the underground chambers where lions and tigers
were caged and gladiators waited to hear their fate...
Colosseum: Take a tour of the Underground levels and the "third ring"!
IMPORTANT NOTE:The do-ability of this tour depends on the availability of a time slot for the day/time you want to go. We need to check with the Colosseum office about time slot availability, and need to be ready to book a time slot if available. Any delay in this procedure may result in loosing the possibility of entering the site.
So, in order to do this we need for you to send a payment in order to cover the costs or time slot reservation + admissions. In case we do not find a time slot available for the day/time you wish to go we will send you a full refund.
The Colosseum has added to its allure by opening the undergrounds pits where gladiators and wild beasts waited before being winched from darkness into the light of the killing ground.
As well as revealing the bowels of the one-time blood-and-guts arena, the famed monument is also reopening its third story, closed since the 1970s, affording a breathtaking view of Rome!!
