Our tour will make you discover the Colosseum and its dungeons. 
The Colosseum is the biggest amphitheater in the world. In 1980, UNESCO has added it in the “World Heritage” list. Its construction started in 72 a.C. and ended 8 years later. 
It could contain between 50 to 75 thousand spectators, and was used until 523 A.C.


Your tour guide will tell you about the different techniques used to build it and he will introduce you to the Gladiators' world, the famous fighters who used to duel in the arena: it appears that this type of fighting started in ancient Greece in order to celebrate private memorial services and the Romans transformed them in acclaimed public shows. The Colosseum day type was split in three sections: fights between men and animals in the morning, execution of criminals at lunch time, gladiator fights in the afternoon.
The Flavian Amphiteathre's organization’s center was in the dungeons, who were important areas for the show's setup and extremely fascinating places, because they have been well preserved. Our tour will go on through every details: from the organization to the social and economical aspects. In particular they will introduce you all types of gladiators: they used to be around 30 types and each one of them used the roman emperor’s military fighting techniques.
Next stop is Palazzo dei Cesari, on the Palatine Hill. This is where the word “Palatium” (building) comes from. You will be taken to see the ruins of the Domus Augustana and then the paintings of Nero's first palace: the only ones that were saved after the arson that took place in 64 A.C.
Our tour ends with a visit to the Roman Forum: in archaic times it used to be a necropolis and has been transformed in the heart of Rome with its temples, its cathedrals, the Popes' Curia and Domus.
The morning ends in the marvelous Piazza del Campidoglio designed by Michelangelo and finished before World War II by the architect Antonio Munoz.
