    Must visit! First Sunday of each month is free. Ticket includes Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Book your reservation before hand to skip lines. Free entry also costs EUR 2 online. Level 2 is must.

    What else can be said, it's the colloseum! Amazing. However, very crowded. Buy tickets in advance and go early in the morning. Download the free Rick Steve's audio tour and listen as you walk through.

    If you want to have a unique view from the underground and the third level, you can acquire the guided tour for an additional fee. You will learn a lot and will enjoy it. Worth it.

    We took a tour via CityWonders (through Viator), and it was one of the best decisions we made during our week in Rome. We skipped the lines & gained access to areas below & above that most don't see.

    Absolute must see. Add it to your bucket list. If you go in the individual/single ticket line you'll wait over an hour. If you go in with a tour group you get right in. No wait.

    Of course you have to visit this legendary structure. Don't be too disappointed in it's ruins, it's still a wonderous feat. Also, if you want the third level/underground tour, BOOK MONTHS IN ADVANCE!!

    Absolutely a must see! The sheer size of it is amazing. Book online to skip the queue & then skip that queue by heading to Palatine Hill & the forum first, the ticket queue there is a lot shorter!

    A must see on any tour of Rome. If you can, get a skip the line or a behind the scenes tour, you get a special experience and miss a lot of the other tourists.

    Amazing construction, unbelievable way of "fun" for the Romans. 50,000 spectators to watch gladiators , beasts fight and criminal execution. #200,000 were killed here over 400 years of operation.

    My life-long dream of seing the arena, finally accomplished! Took the audio tour because I had no time or $ to buy a group tour but it was good enough. Will be back when it is not under restoration!

    As a must in Rome! And buy tickets online: http://www.coopculture.it/en/colosseo-e-shop.cfm (combined ticket colosseum roman forum and palatine, valid for 2 days); not allowed to take any liquids in!

    Better to book the tour online. We showed up and bought the ticket on the spot and missed the chance to visit the arena and lower level. But it did not spoil the impression though

    Before 8 am. you can come here and get around as much as you wish without crowd. I highly recommend you to visit Colosseo with tour, costs 5€ more. It is worth to visit by this way. Enjoy!

    You have to do a guided tour. There is just so much to this place. We did the 3hr Dark Rome tour with the Palatine hill and it was great. Could definitely have spent lots more time though!

    Awesome, just awesome, must see also from inside. Take a guided tour it's worth it. Many people offer the tours outside for approximately 30 euros per person.

    If you go to Rome, this place is a must see. I felt like I was in a Gladiator Movie! The architecture and how everything was minimally designed gains a whole new meaning when you realize how old it is

    The Roman Empire comes alive at the Colosseum! Cruise with your imagination through historic times when fight-games were organized, as depicted by Russel Crowe in "The Gladiator".
  • Michelle M.

    Pay the extra 5 euro's for the tour, its worth it! Also, try and book (way) in advance to get the third ring and underground tour to see areas not normally available for tourists

    It appears even more magical + breathtaking in person! A must, must, must visit for visitors to Rome. Be cautious of your surroundings though and try as best to stay together. The highlight of my trip

    Caveat emptor! The guided tour is worth 5€ -- be aware that it's *really* a 10€ uplift since you've got to buy BOTH tours (Colloseo + Forum) if you want a real guide rather than the audio stick.
  • Amy L.
    Amy LaiOctober 2, 2013
    Try to go early in the morning, the queue is long for just the tickets, then queue again for the audio guides, do bring along your ID as a deposit for those guides. Plan your bathroom trip early ;)

    Get Roma pass to avoid the crowd. Place needs around an hour to check. Go to the second floor. Views r awesome. You will need to be dressed comfortably. Better visit in the afternoon to avoid the heat

    Tickets are only 12€ and you also get access to The Forum and the Ruins AND it's also good for the next day. It's not necessary that you go on a guided tour, but you do get extra info.

    The greatest Romania amphitheatre - book tickets for the underground tour which gets you out onto the floor and then down to see the tunnels and preparation areas

    Great sights of Roman history, amazing place to visit with family and friends. Amazing and breathtaking history right in front of your eyes, a must see place at least once in your life.

    Beat the lines and get the Roma Pass to save time. It provides public transportation and a visit to two museums including the Colloseum. The visit to the Colloseum is well worth the € 30,00!

    take ur time to properly visit the whole colosseum. the guided visit is 45 mins which is not enough time to take pictures and read everything about the history. you can now visit the third stage.

    Audio guide is a bit basic. Great to see and imagine the history. Go early and beat the crowds and heat. Roma pass sometimes has a queue but it speeds up after the metal detectors.

    One ticket with Palatin and roman forum. It smaller line in the second part of the day. You can start with Palatin and forum and then as you have pass to colisseo-you can skip the line

    Book your entrance ticket online for 2 Euros extra to skip the long queue. Remember to book in advance as well for underground tour if you're interested. Keep watch of your possessions around the area

    Buy combo ticket at the Palantine Hill entrance. It includes admission to the Colosseum but you get to avoid the ridiculously long line. Try going to the Palantine and Roman forum first and then visit

    Get a tour guide. No lines and you'll enjoy the whole thing so much more! Tour guides usually also guide you through the Roman Forum. Totally worth the extra 15€/pax
  • Miguel Angel B.
    You MUST vist the Colosseo while in Rome even if only to take a pic. Be aware: lines are massive and it closes at 4pm. Get your tickets online

    If the ticket queue is long, buy tickets at the Forum or Palatine Hill ticket office and head back to the Colosseo. Now you can skip the queue :)

    The Colosseum or Coliseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of Rome, Italy. Built of concrete and stone. It is the largest amphitheatre in the world Read more

    Amazing historic site, must see when in Rome. Buy online otherwise the queue will be terrible. Never buy from the touts, it's never a good deal.

    Worth going to the very top level for an even more impressive experience. Queue a little while longer at the free entrance if you're willing! This has to be part of your Rome experience no doubt.

    Loved it with my whole heart! Really worth going inside - it's breathtaking and inspiring. Worth buying tickets online - you won't wait in a queue (really good organization 👌)

    So much of history 😻. If you want to visit the underground you gotta make reservations. Long queues but there are agents outside who take double charges but give free tour. Worth the doubles.

    Colosseo without the history is just a huge half ruined building. So get prepared. To go underground & 3rd floor u need guided tour for €9. To imagine the atmosphere go to Stadio Olimpico :-)

    For the price of the audio guide you can bypass the line. We shared one for a total of 8€, well worth it to jump the queue and the audio guide was very helpful

    Take the Roma Pass which price is 34 € from Termini Station and then you will have free metro and free entrance to Colloseum,Roman Forum and Palatino! And with this pass you can avoid the huge queue!

    You can buy tickets for the Colosseo (and the Palatino) across the street, at the Panatino's entrance. Usually the line there is much shorter and you can skip the huge line for the Colosseo

    Well worth seeing, avoid the queues and get there early or buy your tickets at the Palatine Hill entrance, which has a very small queue.

    Skip the long lines by buying tickets for the colloseum at the Palatino (follow the signs to the right of the colloseum). Palatino is on the right side of the street after 250m (see photo).

    Magnifico structure of the ancient city of Roma in Italy. Mesmerising due to its architecture and history. The city is complimented with limited Metro lines and bus transport system.

    If u love history,hire guide. If not,just venture inside freely n take pictures. For palatine hill n roman forum, be prepared to walk a thousand steps. Buy ticket from reliable operator

    Amazing place to visit. We actually found it quicker to buy tickets on the gate rather than get them in advance online! We had a much smaller queue to wait in!
