Enjoying the skies of Rome from the top of the city’s most iconic monument: a stunning and unique view which is now accessible to all thanks to the new panoramic lift that from the XXVII fornix of the Colosseum reaches the highest levels of the cavea, particularly the gallery located between the 2nd and 3rd orders, which was carefully restored to secure and enhance its structures.
Built respecting the ancient masonry and totally reversible, the lift allows people with motor difficulties to overcome the hundred steep steps that separate the first order from the intermediate gallery. The Colosseum Archaeological Park has always been attentive to the issue of physical, cultural and cognitive accessibility and this is a further step towards inclusiveness and culture open to all.
Panoramic lift tours can be booked starting 29 June and will take place daily between 7:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m., at an exceptional and suggestive time. The intermediate gallery can be explored in its entire length without architectural barriers. Access to the 3rd order and from there to the attic is possible at present by climbing a few steep steps but a small elevator will be available from September.
