Painting and graffitti in the Colosseum!

Visitors come to the Colosseum will be able to see something really special: Original, painted decorations… Not only that, but some pretty interesting graffiti was discovered.

A lot of graffiti is written in admiration of the gladiators and their deeds. Found during a restoration of the third level, the gallery could be open as early as next summer.

But it probably will only be open to those who are booking the third-level access (which isn’t an automatic part of your normal Colosseum ticket, but instead is currently included in a visit of the hypogeum), so stay tuned!

You can book your tour of the Colosseum underground and third level with us here. And don’t miss our fun video of what it’s like to explore the Colosseum underground!
