The tour guide can make or break any tour and the Walks guide was great! We learned a great deal from her, unfortunately we had to use a Colosseum guide once inside and she seemed to be in a hurry. She was very knowledgeable but talked so fast it was hard to follow her. The length of the tour was good and the sites that were shown were nice. Just wished out Walks guide could have done it all.

This was a highlight of our entire Italy trip. I had seen the Colosseum before, but not like this: at night, no crowds, walking through the floor area. Both of our tour guides were awesome: starting downtown Rome and then walking along the Forum, and then going into the Colosseum. Everything was very well planned out and both guides were engaging, entertaining, and very informative. Being in the Colosseum at night with no crowds really was surreal. Highly recommended.

This was an excellent tour to the inner workings of the Colosseum and complemented our day tour to the venue. Both the tour guides were knowledgeable and full of information we could never have discovered on our own.

The VIP night tour of the Colosseum was an amazing experience. Because we were there without the crowds, we could really appreciate the atmosphere and historical significance of the site.

Please meet 15 minutes prior to the tour start time.


Do we always see the sights in the same order that you have listed in the description?
No. Sometimes the order of our visits change due to logistical issues or your guide make a snap decision to avoid crowds in order to increase the quality of your visit.
Is this tour accessible for wheelchairs, strollers or for those with mobility impairments?
Unfortunately due to the nature of this tour it is not suitable for guests with mobility impairments, or for wheelchairs or strollers. Please contact the Guest Experience team at [email protected] or call +39 068-596-0143 (Italy) or 888-683-8670 (USA) to make alternative arrangements.
Does the order of the itinerary on this tour ever change?
Occasionally the sights on this tour are visited in a different order. This happens due to logistical changes and snap decisions made by our guides to avoid crowds and thus improve your visit.
Is there wheelchair access in the Colosseum?
Wheelchair access in the Colosseum is limited at best and non-existent when its crowded. The specific route of this tour does not accomodate wheelchairs (as we have to go up and down stairs). If you use a wheelchair or have impaired mobility and would like to see the Colosseum, please contact our customer service department for private tour options at [email protected]
Are selfie sticks allowed in the Colosseum?
Yes, but please be careful when using them - during the summer months they can be more dangerous than gladiators' weapons.
What if the weather is bad (rain, snow, hail, etc.) on the day of my tour?
Our tours run rain or shine so please dress for the elements. We also ask you to please remember hats and sunscreen if you are taking this tour in the summer as it might be very hot.
Does the Colosseum ever close without warning?
Unfortunately, Yes. The Colosseum is subject to unforeseen closures due to weather conditions and worker strikes, as well as last minute changes in reservations, all of which are out of Walks of Italy (or any other tour operator's) control. If for any reason we cannot run the tour as described, we will contact you immediately, offering the best alternatives. Depending on the situation this might result in a modification of the itinerary or a change in the tour start time. Our aim is to offer you the highest level of service and in the rare occasion in which circumstances outside of our control mean that you cannot participate in a variation of this tour we will offer you a full refund.
Do I need to bring a photo identification with me?
Yes! This is especially important if you have purchased a student ticket because some sights will check when we arrive.
