Owner description: 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.

The Colosseum is an amazing part of history! Do not miss it! We booked a guide onsite, and while he was very knowledgeable, he was long-winded and hard to hear, so we ended up walking off on our own to marvel.

This was really wonderful to go into after seeing pictures for so many years. It is very large and in good shape. Great atmosphere. Of course, huge queues so get a ticket like Rome Pass which enables you to take the shorter line or get a guide.

I had a tour here and it was fascinating, unmissable.
I did find the atmosphere rather oppressive though and the reality of all the bloodshed hit me full force when I looked into the underground cells and saw the descriptions of the different types of gladiators, how they fought and what weaponry they used. Tbh I was glad to leave & get outside into the sunlight again.

With the Colosseum you also get entry to the Palatine. It was a great day out, and it was amazing to see the history and the roots of Rome. Definitely recommended.

The Colosseum is a must visit for first time visitors to Rome. It tells a lot of Roman history. The only regret is the admission ticket counter lacks of information in English and the staffs are not helpful.
