Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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.

Ok, it's crowded, not to mention the security. But, if you are going to visit only once, by all means take the underground tour. You'll get to see what it's like to be down below, what regular visitors don't get to see. Plus, your group will be small(er). You've come to the Coloseo, take it all in.

Incredible site, didn't book a tour but when we got to the site there were loads of tour groups looking for customers. Price varies from $30 US and up. Price usually includes fast track entrance and the tour. Wear good shoes as cobblestones are very uneven. I am still amazed and grateful the coliseum has survived all the years. Put this at the top of your must see list when in Rome

Well worth your time to see this impressive most interesting historical structure. Down load your own free audio guide on your phone and skip the organized tours. The line for tickets was not too long .

Pay the money and arrange a tour! LivItaly was great tour company. You will skip the lines and be able to experience the entire Colosseum from top to bottom including underground. This was truly the BEST time ever!

We booked the English tour of the Colosseum through the official website of the Colosseum. We got to go on the platform alone and under ground. The ticket included the ability to go to the Forum/Palentine Hill on same day or next day. If I did it again I would plan more time for the Forum/Hill. 2 hours was not enough!
