The Walks guide (Mauro) who led us around town before the Colosseum was superb. The archaeologist once in the C, however, was not. She was hard to understand, didn't speak much about the interesting history of the building and instead focused overmuch on the lift system and the Jerusalem mural presentation, which was not very interesting and I daresay, was also not what most of us had come to see. We felt that Mauro would have done amuch better job (he's written books on the Colosseum!) but apparently that is not an option since the authorities have control over who leads tours in the C. Just be aware that if you love your Walks guide (as we did), he/she may not be leading the group in the structure itself, which is a shame.

Kylie is a fantastic guide. The tour was well constructed and any questions we had were brilliantly answered with facts and humor. Very informative and enjoyable.

Phenomenal your! Worth waiting for the evening.

Absolutely the best. The tour was organized, beautiful, and both guides were very knowledgeable, friendly with good English.

A very novel concept and we were the only group in the Colosseum after closing - which, when you compare it to the crowds during the day, makes the tour very special! Our first guide, Mikaela, was engaging, witty and interesting with lots of energy and a great ability to hold the crowd and keep everyone interested. Our guide within the Colosseum, Gianluca, was unfortunately not as engaging as Mikaela - he was clearly very knowledgeable, but lost the interest of the group pretty early on - it was a little like attending a lecture.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
