Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.
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
We nearly didn't go inside as I was unfortunate enough to end up in a wheelchair for my trip.. So glad we did as there is a lift and the Italians are so helpful to wheelchair users, ie you do not queue up. It is...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
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
I have been there twice, first time in May and second time in November and we always bought tickets inside and it was all ok, had to wait for 10 max. for the tickets. But maybe we were just lucky. Anyway you have to visit...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
Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
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
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. It only takes roughly an hour to get through the colleseum and then you can head straight over to Palantine Hill as there are no crowds there at 9:30/10am
