Live Colosseum Tour Virtual Reality and Exclusive Vip Arena Floor Access

Live the most complete and exciting experience in a fully immersive way through Virtual Reality Colosseum Arena Floor Tour with Special Gladiators Entrance & Underground 3D and access like a Gladiator from the privileged entrance of the amphitheater, without any queue and long security checks, a true VIP entry!

With the Oculus VR technology you will begin your journey in the history of the Colosseum among the Roman spectators, fights between gladiators and fierce beasts, transforming yourself into the various characters of ancient Rome.

Through the exclusive animated and interactive 3D historical reconstruction, certified by well-known historians and integrated by epic music and narrative voices, it is possible to explore the Colosseum as never before. A real family tour and at the same time an informative, educational and fun experience, suitable for all ages

Before entering the Arena your expert local guide will welcome you outside the monument with a brief introduction. Soon, after you will wear your latest generation Oculus VR device that will immerse you through an animated 3D reconstruction into the ancient Colosseum’s square.

About 2000 years ago, just like a Roman spectator who walked in the square to admire the magnificence of the Colosseum, the majestic statue of Nero or “Il Colosso”, the Meta Sudans and the Temple of Venus and Roma.

The time has come to feel like a Gladiator and to access from the privileged entrance directly on the Arena floor where you can admire a unique 360 degrees perspective of the cavea, a panorama that leaves you breathless and that welcomed up to 75,000 spectators and to have a close view on the underground’s corridors where the shows were prepared.

Now turn yourself into a Gladiator by wearing the Oculus VR again and walking virtually you will make your triumphal entry directly to the Arena floor between the roar of ferocious lions, the applause of the crowd and the gladiatorial combat, to turn this time into the Emperor to decide the fate of the wounded gladiator with the simple gesture of the thumb: “Death or Grace”.

While continues with the historical narration, your guide will take you to the second most stunning breathtaking panoramic spot of the amphitheater, the upper floor, where the Roman spactators sat and enjoyed the historical performances that took place right below your eyes.

At the exit from the monument, your guide will assist you again to complete the third and last virtual stage: the immersion in a three-dimensional reconstruction of the mysterious underground where you can witness how the slaves move in silence coordinating all the elements necessary to make the show a success, explore through the narrow corridors between gladiators who prepare their weapons for the battle and admire a detailed 3D reconstruction of the hoists, geniuses works of ancient Rome and used to suddenly catapult the beasts on the Arena.

If you are still not too tired, do not miss the opportunity to visit the Roman Forums and the Palatine Hill, a true outdoor archaeological museum and you will be accompanied to their entrance to continue on your own the visit with the same entrance ticket.
