This is the best attraction in Rome! I recommend getting a guided tour. They give you a lot of new information. I had seen many documentaries on The Colosseum, but it is not the same. The tour guide can tell you, "Over here is a...More

I took a guided tour of the Colosseum with Walks of Italy. It was their night time tour, which SIGNIFICANTLY reduces the number of people in the Colosseum. It was awesome! At night the Colosseum is lighted, and it makes for spectacular photographs. Our tour...More

When in Rome this is something you quite simply can’t miss. As one of the new seven wonders of the world it’s got to be seen. If it fits in with your schedule and budget please, please, please do a guided tour inside the colosseum....More

Great place to visit. I really recommend to use a guide - this way you will be able to understand better the place and the history. If you use a private tour you may also skip the line.

As a history buff, visiting the Colosseum and appreciating its history is up there with must dos. To stop and look at the skill it took to build the Colosseum in its time is amazing. To just pause and take in the size, the history,...More

One of the best historic buildings we have ever visited. Mesmerizing views, as you walk around let your imagination take you back to the times of the Gladiators & the horrendous massacres that took place within the walls, not a pleasant thought but spellbinding all...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at

Colleseum has a line for Roma pass which essentially is a skip the line. I would recommend arriving about 8am and be near the front of the queue for when the gates open at 8:30. Even the skip the line queue is a long queue... More

Yes you get to wander around the Coloseum after your tour and the ticket gets you into the palantine hill and roman forum.
