Tickets for Mamertine Prison + Colosseum, Roman Forum & Palatine Hill: Priority Entrance
Join your audio tour through the Mamertine prison in the somewhat creepy basement of the church of San Pietro in Carcere. Learn more about the prisoners who sat here, including Saints Peter and Paul, and enter the Colosseum through a special treacherous entrance!
The prisoners in Mamertine Prison, also known as the Tullianum, were once lowered into the cell through a hole in the ceiling, but luckily you can use the stairs.
Put on your audio headset and explore the basement of the Church of San Pietro in Carcere, a prison that housed defeated kings, other sinners and even Saints Peter and Paul.
It's small, it's dark, it's tight, but it's one of the most atmospheric parts of the forum! You will even see the bars to which St. Peter was supposedly chained, and the water basin with which he baptized the visitors.
Once you have absorbed this special part of history, enter the architectural triumph of the Colosseum via a special, fast entrance and explore it and the Forum Romanum at your own pace.
