The Colosseum Guided Tour, types of Guided Tours
Colosseum Guided Tour. There are many types of Guided Tours of the Colosseum: some tour operators offer a visit to the archaeological site, others offer a walking tour also in areas adjacent to the amphitheater and many other still combine a bus ride to the tour on foot in order to provide a culturally more complete service.
The Guided Tours of the Colosseum, divided into a bus tour and a walking tour, usually takes about 3 hours. It can be available every day at the scheduled times and depending on who organizes it, it can only take place on certain days of the week.
Usually this type of tour is composed of a pre-established group of up to 20 people, thanks to the instructions on the voucher (document that is sent after booking the tour, which contains all the information relating to the service purchased), meet the guide in an easily recognizable and accessible location. To be recognized, the guide will have a distinctive object or garment such as a T-shirt, an umbrella, a scarf or a particular color, as happens in most cases, a sign with the name of the tour operator organizing the visit.
Once you have met the guide, the group gets on the bus and here we begin the guide. In this part of the Tour’s visit can be carried out entirely on the bus or may provide stops to allow visitors to admire the monuments and archaeological sites included in the information provided by the guide.
Usually the Colosseum Guided Tour ends with a guided tour of the Colosseum where you need to pick up the entrance tickets, the guide will take care of this presenting the voucher at the special customer counter customer and, thanks to the reservation, the group can enter the Amphitheatre without having to queue at the ticket offices.
In order to better understand the explanations, earphones are usually available to visitors that amplify the voice of the guide and that, at the end of tour, must be returned. This service is also included because some are multi-lingual tours, which is carried out simultaneously in English and in another language (which may be the Italian, French, Spanish or German), so, through the use of these devices, every visitor has the opportunity to follow the visit in the language of prefrence.
