Rome Colosseum & Gelato Tour ~ 3 Hours 

Choose from our Colosseum & Gelato Tour or Gelato Tour only.

Join us in the heart of Rome for a historical tour of the Colosseum.  Walk through ancient doors and alleyways that date back over 2000 years and discover the Enteral City’s greatest landmark.  Meet your English-speaking guide for a morning or afternoon tour through the largest amphitheater in the world – one of the greatest works of architecture and engineering of the Roman Empire -and discover Rome’s glorious past.

First started by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD then completed in 80 AD under his successor Titus, the Colosseum is a treasure of history giving a glimpse into Rome’s ancient past.  Estimated to hold up to 80,000 spectators, it was once the center of entertainment during Imperial Rome with gladiators and beast battles, re-enactments of sea conquests and spectacles including classical mythological dramas.  The Colosseums’ role changed in Medieval times and was once even a place of Christian worship.

For the 2016 Jubilee, the Colosseum underwent a total refurbishing bringing it back to its once original white color respecting its original architecture as it continues to be a must-see for any visitor.  Our Colosseum & Gelato Tour has been specially designed for the first-time visitor or the returning traveler (we will work with you to understand your interest level and children’s age).

After the Colosseum visit, your tour continues to one of the most famous Roman gelateria of its time for an ice cream tasting tour that will fill you with the creamy confection!  Starting with fresh milk and seasonal fruits:  strawberries, pistachios, hazelnuts, chocolate, berries or lemons – our Chef creates flavors for every palette.  Dig into velvety chocolate and Nutella, nutty nocciola, crunchy pistacchio, creamy stracciatella, sweet lemon or bourbon vanilla.  The sky is the limit, as we taste our way through combinations of flavors made with wholesome ingredients.

Our Gelato Tasting Tour is designed to each group’s interests and is family-friendly paying special attention to all food allergies.
