Once past security, venture through the colossal arches and delve into the most renowned ancient monument globally, the Colosseum. Constructed in the 1st Century AD under the reign of the Flavian Emperors – Vespasian, Titus, and Domitian – this edifice earned its moniker, 'Colosseo,' owing to its proximity to a mammoth golden statue of the sun god Apollo. Across centuries, the Colosseum embodied the might, opulence, and spectacle of Ancient Rome's public entertainment. During this expedited 1.5-hour tour, featuring exclusive access to the Arena Floor, delve into the rich history of this extraordinary site. Discover the rigorous training and combat techniques of the gladiators, their dietary regimen for peak performance, as well as the intricacies of their armor and weaponry. Hear gripping accounts of savage animal contests and legendary staged naval skirmishes, alongside tales of emperors, slaves, vestal virgins, and celebrated gladiators. As the tour concludes within the Colosseum, you're free to further explore at your leisure, continuing to unravel the mysteries of this ancient marvel.
