Colosseum undergound tickets

I need to find the official website of the Colosseum. I want to buy tickets to the underground tour.

When I go to the website which is on an old post I get an error message.

I would prefer buying tickets through the official website other than a commercial agency.

I'm getting the same error on the official site, they must be having a problem at the moment,.

Might be better to call them to make a booking.

The website is down for bookings until further notice. You have to phone during Italian business hours. Instructions and phone number are in Top Questions.

The website isn't down, but they're not selling tours at the moment, just entry tickets. You have to call to reserve tours.

I tried that number and I got a signal that indicated that the number was not valid, it was not a busy signal. I tried the number at 10:30 am Rome time on a Saturday. the website stated that they were opened until 2 pm on a Saturday. Does anyone have any further ideas?

Did you put 011 in front of the full telephone number? If not, it won't go through

If you use the plus sign, you don't put the 011.

I just tried it now, and the number is working.

True - sorry. Most people I know though, are unaware of the plus sign.

Hopefully, either of these two will help the poster make the call -

The plus sign doesn't work on a landline phone. You have to use the 011 (from the US) to make the call. Not everyone uses a cell phone for their calls.

I was just warning people not to try using both, which I thought the combination of Dbabe's and Momcat's messages might suggest.
