Colosseum by Night

One of the other things we did our our recent visit to Rome was to visit the Colosseum. We booked a tour with Dark Rome; we used them last time we were in Rome and they were excellent. As they’ve expanded, the company now calls itself City Wonders and Dark Rome is just a brand under the City Wonders umbrella. We also used them in Venice; so we’ve enjoyed six outings with them. I can happily recommend them, if you are going to somewhere they operate.

We tried to book one of the extended tours, but these were all full as we left it rather late. So we ended up with the Colosseum Night Tour. This turned out to be a good thing as Rome was “enjoying” temperatures of 33–34°C during the day, which had moderated somewhat by the start of the tour at 19:00.

Here’s a selection of pictures.
