  • We start our tour behind locked gates; this area can only be visited with a guide. Once inside, you will descend into the underground area known as the Hypogeum, a warren of secret passages once under the stage. It was the place where, in darkness, the gladiators and animals prepared themselves for what was to come. This is a great place to visit, and during this tour you will see reconstructions of the mechanisms used to send the wild animals up onto the stage. It really makes your imagination come alive.

    We then travel up to the arena floor and walk through the "Porta Libitina", the "Gate of Death", a place where were only the dead passed through. Here we will tell you stories of the gladiators, their lives, their fights, and their loves. They were hero’s of the moment, battling with each other and deadly animals for survival. Stand here and imagine yourself as one of those gladiators the crowds cheering your name, or booing you, depending on who’s side they were on. How would you feel?
