Walk in the footsteps of gladiators

The sounds were deafening - public teasing and mocking, animals grunting and howling, opponents supplicating. Air filled with a horrid mix of smells, blood soaked sand, animal feces, scorching iron and sweat.


Experience the long existence of this awesome monument right in the heart of the Eternal City. A monument that after all the centuries still stands today as a symbol of a nation, its rise to greatness and power, and finally loss from grace. Il Colosseo; the Colosseum--and at the center of it all, the dark, gory but glorious existence of the Gladiators of Ancient Rome..


Join Walks to make a journey via this live-online tour deep into the somber yet jubilant reality of these world’s most feared and celebrated warriors - the Gladiators, and the monumental structure built as their playground, which now stands as one of the world’s most symbolic ancient sites. Within the Colosseum, the Eternal City has its eternal symbolic representation. Now, let's dive a little deeper into its hidden secrets.


Our guide will walk you through how stolen lands for an Emperor’s vain Domus Aurea (Golden Palace) became the location of the largest building of Ancient Rome and the host of the free public games. Ramble under the arches to be introduced into the life of the Colosseum’s raging occupants - where glory was found and lost within the boundaries of the arena floor.


Over the hour, your guide will share the secrets and stories of their life working within the Colosseum - reveal what they have come to learn in their studies and share, too often overpassed, items of interest about the Colosseum.


Experience this live tour, engage in conversation, get response to your questions from the comfort of your own home - a perfect experience for those who have yet to visit Italy, for travelers yarning to go back, or those simply fascinated by the history of Ancient Rome.


With any online tour, you'll also receive a $10 gift voucher which you can use to book any Secret Food Tour, valid for 2 years!
