Colosseum Arena Floor Tour
The Colosseum Arena Floor is a landmark that is majorly out of reach for the majority of visitors there.

There is also one sort of VIP ticketing facility, availing which one could directly skip the line and directly enter the area that’s not for the general mass. From this ground, you could almost have a first-person view of what the gladiators saw from there, the unprecedented, peerless Palatine hills and the Roman Forum.
