Beginning on November 1, the Colosseum’s fourth and fifth floors will open to visitors for the first time in more than a generation. These upper sections contained the “nosebleed” seats, from which regular ancient Romans could watch gladiatorial combats and other spectacles.

Modern visitors who wish to see the fourth and fifth floors must pay an additional fee (on top of the regular ticket price) for a guided tour. From these heights, visitors can see a fuller view of the ancient amphitheater as well as the Roman cityscape. The guided tour also gives access to a newly restored connecting hallway, which has never been open to visitors.

The reopening of these upper sections is thanks to the recent, years-long renovation funded by Italian entrepreneur Diego Della Valle.
