TICKETS CAN BE BOOKED ON A MONTHLY BASIS

The visits with the panoramic lift to the intermediate gallery between the 2nd and the 3rd levels and from there to the attic of the Colosseum will be possible every day of the week from 8.30 a.m. to 5.45 p.m.

MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PERSONS PERMITTED PER VISIT: 8

The visit is open to all and barrier-free up to the intermediate gallery, which can be walked through its entire length; access to the third order is possible with a dedicated hoist.
The visit to the attic, on the other hand, remains possible only by climbing steep steps.

A five-stage educational path has been set up along the new route with panels in Italian and English illustrating the highest levels of the Colosseum’s cavea:

1) The gallery between the 2nd and 3rd levels
2) The water management system
3) The tituli picti i.e. symbols, drawings and inscriptions made with red traces on travertine blocks
4) The 3rd level
5) The levels above the 3rd level (the attic)

 

The panels are accompanied by drawings and prints by Luigi Canina, conserved at the Biblioteca Casanatense.
On the occasion of the opening to the public, the intermediate gallery has been equipped with a lighting system that not only creates a very evocative setting, but also enhances some original portions of the white and red plaster coatings in which traces of the ancient and more recent occupations are still visible.
