Nights at the Parco archeologico del Colosseo: The Moon over the Colosseum continues until January 2022

2 November 2021

From November 5, 2021 to January 8, 2022 the series of guided tours The Moon over the Colosseum continues with a completely renewed edition, in collaboration with Electa.

Also in winter, every Friday and Saturday, from 6 pm to 10 pm (last entrance at 8.30 pm), for groups of maximum 25 people, it will be possible to follow the new and evocative itinerary of the arena and the underground areas, made possible by the recent restoration of the entire surface of the spaces that housed beasts, gladiators and stage sets.

The itinerary unfolds the story of the topography of the valley where the Colosseum was built while, crossing the area of the underground levels, we discover the materials with which the amphitheatre was built, allowing it to overcome the passage of time, the functionalities and the rules that made it an extraordinary spectacle machine. The tour continues along the corridor around the arena level, passing in front of the Aedicule of the Way of the Cross, reconstructed with the original 19th-century fragments, and ends on the arena level itself, with an extraordinary view of the underground levels and a 360° view of the immensity of the seating areas, which held more than 60,000 spectators, outlined in the night by the lights and shadows of the hollows of the arches.
