The Moon over the Colosseum is back with a special edition. It’s an all new experience with the new Full Experience ticket

17 July 2020

The reopening of the Parco archeologico del Colosseo is forging ahead while expanding the selection of cultural experiences on offer: in full respect of visitors’ safety and social distancing, The Moon over the Colosseum is back with a brand new, special edition, and a new version of the Full Experience ticket.

The Moon over the Colosseum — every Saturday, from 25 July to 19 September 2020 (booking open from Friday the 17th at 9:00 AM).

An all new narration has been added to the previous ones: “Of wizards, necromancers, shepherds and other trades”, an unusual itinerary which, for the first time, will take advantage of the recent rediscovery of the graffiti found in the ambulacrum of the 1st tier, dateable between the late Middle Ages and the 17th century.

The itinerary will take visitors through the arena floor and then up to the 2nd tier, a testimony to the uninterrupted life of the monument through time, and will conclude after evening falls with a view over the Piazza del Colosseo, in front of the majestic Arch of Constantine and the solemn Temple of Venus and Roma.
