You just can’t go to Rome and not visit the colosseum! We booked our tickets in advance and all tickets include the forum and the palatine hill. Lots to see.

Magnificent monument easy access with the pre booked tickets. The only minor issue was the works carried out around the site but this is temporary.

Very well organised we had a great day!
Looked around the Colosseum in the morning and then had lunch in a nearby restaurant, waited for the hot sun to cool down and then spent the afternoon in the Forum.
Excellent value

The experience was simply amazing. Our Tour Guide was Gabriel who made the attraction so much more interesting. Our microphones at the start were buggy but he immediately rectified the issue to make sure our trip was perfect. As we made our way through the Colleseum grounds, his explanation and description of each part really opened our eyes. I'll be thanking Headout for its ease of use as I knew when, where and who to go to. I'll definitely be recommending Headout Tours for making everything easy and comfortable.

Absolutely stunning experience - the Colosseum really is a must-see in Rome. There is also a museum inside the ruins that are wonderful.

At the beginning of the trip the guide(Laura) started from the start, like literally. He gave us the insight of the place and the detailed history behind it. He was funny too sometimes, and had a handy image book to make us understand how the place looked before it was robbed by the romans. it was like story telling and learning at the same time.

The colosseum is something that I dont want or need to review. Its an amazing landmark, so full of history, so impressive and in my opinion the must to visit place if you go to Rome. So go for it ;-).

What you need to consider:
- book your visit online before going, as you cant buy a ticket there
- dont worry too much about entry times and about crowds - the ticket you buy is valid for 24 hours, and from the moment you enter the first attraction, you have plenty of time to see the other ones as well
-- a lot of people are visiting, but it spreads out really well, and we never felt uncomfortable

This was excellent and awe inspiring.
We booked a tour of the Colosseum. Roman Forum and Palatine Hill so was a rather challenging (but doable) walk!
A guided tour is the only way to see this. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable and really conveyed the story behind each artifact which brought it to life.
