Overview

Experience the Colosseum and Ancient Rome in virtual reality on this 3-hour Viator Exclusive tour. Skip the long lines at the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill, where you'll listen to your guide's engaging narrative, accompanied by 360° reconstructions of the sites with your phone and the provided cardboard headset. This small-group tour includes just 6 participants per group for guaranteed personal attention from your guide and can only be booked through Viator.
  • 3-hour guided tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome with virtual reality reconstructions
  • Small group of just 6 people guarantees personalized attention
  • Skip the line access to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill
  • Explore the ancient structures, then slip on the headset to see the reconstructions
  • Viator Exclusive tour can only be booked here
Find your way to Rome's famous Colosseum at 9:30am to meet your guide and small group of just 6 participants. Upon booking the tour, your confirmation email will invite you to download a simple app. Bring your phone to the tour, and your guide will gift you a cardboard headset, yours to keep. After a brief introduction, slip your phone into the headset and get your fist peek of the magic of virtual reality: a reconstruction of the Colosseum and the surrounding valley from the outside.

Breeze past the often-long entrance lines and proceed directly into the Colosseum. Explore the first two rings of the arena while you listen to stories of Caesar, gladiators, games, and entertainment. Learn about the architecture and engineering of the arena, then don your glasses to view what it must have been like on the arena level and on Caesar's balcony. 

Continue on to Palatine Hill, climbing as you hear about the origins of ancient Rome, including Livia and the House of Augustus. Get a view of the valley between the Palatine Hill and the Aventine Hill where Circus Maximus used to be, then don your glasses to see the reconstruction of Circus Maxiumus. 

Descend into the valley to visit the Roman Forum, where you'll see the Arch of Titus, the Basilica of Maxentius, and the Temple of Antonino and Faustina. Once you reach the main square, you'll learn about the Temple of Julius Caesar, the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Rostra, the Basilica Aemilia, and the Temple of Jupiter atop Capitoline Hill. After your guide fills you in on the history and architecture of the important structures, slip on your VR glasses, you'll be able to see some of the structures reconstructed in their original glory.

Great Coloseum Tour

Silvia was a great guide - very knowledgeable and amusing. A little bit of walking but that helped work off the great food we ate in Rome! Great tour!

We had the best experience throughout the whole tour - every place was amazing but what really made the tour so great was Giulia! She was so welcoming to our group and paid attention to what we were interested in and wanted to see. We can't say enough great things about her! The Virtual Reality was very cool because it helped you to visualize what it would have looked like back in time. Overall, it was the best tour we had in Italy!

Excellent tour. Although wed been to the Colosseum before we learned so much more about Ancient Rome. Having only 6 in our group made it easier to ask questions. Highly recommend.

Very small group, very knowledgeable guide, plus we got to skip the really long lines. There's actually no virtual reality during the tour apparentl it's been forbidden or something, but we did get the VR glasses at the end of the tour.

Skipping the line is a must! Make sure you are in the right spot for the tour. We were where they said, but apparently there is an upper and lower floor and we were waiting at the wrong spot. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable and it was all very interesting. However, the virtual reality was not worth it at all. Don't do it. Totally useless. And, our guide, while very knowledgeable, was very hard to understand.

We loved everything of this tour! The group is so small that it looks like you're simply going around with your friends and the guide is one of them. We skipped the long lines and enjoyed every moment. It's very interesting to be into the Colosseum and check how it was back in the days with the virtual reality glasses. I especially enjoyed the view from the Palatine Hill. Highly recommended!
