When we went to Italy one of our favorite tours was a private Colosseum Underground tour we booked with LivItaly.  We went to the top tier which you can't do with general admission. We also went to the underground section which isn't open to the public. Our tour host Rachel was incredible and truly made the experience even better. She shared lots of great information and was so much fun. We had a small group of only our family and two other people so it was very personal.
