Best place to purchase tickets for Colosseum etc

Hi, I will be in Rome only for a short time, 22/5-23/5/14, as the 23rd will be our whole day we are intending to do the underground tour at the Colosseum late in the day, I believe I will have to ring the Colosseum site to book this tour, however do I have to also book and pay for the entry ticket. Is it possible if we buy this from the Roman Forum whether we visit there either the 22nd or 23rd and then use on the 23rd for access to the Colosseum. Also what time is the Forum and Palatine open to, just in case we decide to do after the Colosseum.

Thankyou for any help.

best place to purchase tickets - in my experience - to save yourself time and hopefully avoid the incredible queues at the Colosseum - my suggestion - is to go directly to Palatine hill - purchase tickets there for both (www.aviewoncities.com › Rome › Rome Attractions www.tripadvisor.com.au › ... › Lazio › Rome › Things to do in Rome‎) - then you are able to go directly into the colosseum and avoid the queues - earlier in the day the better !

Read the sticky at the top of the main page. It has all the information for booking the colosseum.
