This often sold-out and highly sought-after addition to the Colosseum tour provides access to the Colosseum's Hypogeum (underground) and Third Tier.
Below the arena in the Hypogeum, you'll see where gladiators, slaves, and wild beasts were prepped for battle before being elevated (often to their deaths) to the main arena. Above in the Third Tier, you will get a view of the arena that the lower class had of the games, from the cheapest seats in the house, but still close to the brutal and bloody action. Be sure to inquire if tickets are available for your tour dates!
