The highest floors of the Colosseum will be made available to tourists

From November 1, 2017, visitors will be provided with a new route including the 4th and 5th level of the Roman Coliseum. Tourists have already been able to explore the underground with the purposes of gladiators and the third level of the Coliseum, now after the announcement of the decision last week by the Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini, the top two floors of this attraction will be at their disposal.

They will be reopened after 40 years. In the past they were occupied by small traders and petty bourgeoisie (level IV) and plebeian classes (level five). The lower parts were occupied by: Emperor and senators (1st level), imperial officials (2nd level) and middle class (3rd level).

Attica, because it is called the highest level, rises to a height of 40 meters above the arena and offers a breathtaking view not only to the lower parts of the monument, but also to the entire Eternal City.

For safety reasons, these floors can be visited in groups of up to 25 people. The route will be there from the only gallery entirely preserved, located between the second and third floor.

Minister Franceschini also informed that the last stage of the restoration of the facility, including the renewal of the arena itself, had just been signed. It is also planned to renovate the undergrounds of the Flavian Amphitheater. 18 million euros were allocated to finance the renewal project.

You will have to pay extra for access to "new" floors. The Coliseum is the most popular place in Rome and Italy, annually visited by about 6 million tourists.
