Colosseum Arena Floor & Prison of St. Peter Tour in Rome Itinerary

13:30 - Mamertine Prison
  • The tour starts with a visit to one of the most fascinating yet little-known sites of Ancient Rome - the Mamertine Prison (Please present your ticket at the entrance).
  • Explore with the help of a multimedia video guide the prison where the Saints Peter and Paul were captivated by Emperor Nero before their execution. Until today an altar remains to remind visitors about the incarnation of the Saints. You will see as well the remains of the ancient cistern, where St. Peter baptized his fellow captives.
15:00 Guided Tour of the Colosseum & the Roman Forum
  • After a short break, you will meet your expert guide just a few steps away from the Colosseum - it will be a great opportunity to take some pictures!
  • You'll walk through the different levels of the Colosseum as your guide tells you the stories and legends that surround this incredible place.
  • After that, there will be time to explore the original Arena Floor.
  • This is the very floor where gladiators fought brutally for fame and their lives for the entertainment of others, and echoes of its past permeate every stone.
  • The last stop of the day will be the Roman Forum.
  • Ramble down the stone avenues and twisting streets that will lead you to monumental temples, shrines, and beautiful basilicas that make up the one-of-a-kind Roman Forum.
