It really is something to see this in person. We paid for a guide before entering - there are a whole bunch out front selling their services. The tour was good and provided lots of opportunities for photos, and a lot of extra info that I had never heard, read, or seen before. There was some 2000 year old graffiti... More

Each has a different approach to what you will see, how many will be in your tour, and what levels of access you can have throughout the Colosseum. Take your time and review the different offerings to assure that... More

I enjoyed this visit and was glad I took a guide through. It was such a neat thing to finally see! I ended swinging back the night before I left and it was fun to see at night as well!

I loved visiting the coliseum! The queues are scary during high season, but it's definitely worth it. We chose not to take the guided tour, but when I return to Rome, I will certainly choose the guided tour

We were utterly amazed at the sight! The sight of it leaves you breathless! Definitely worth a visit! We didn't visit the inside as we arrived at dawn but we enjoyed it very much!

This was my second time visiting Colosseum and it was amazing. My husband and I joined a guided tour to Colosseum via Viator and we didn't regret it at all! You can also use downloadable audio guide to make your visit more memorable.

Great morning educational trip in walking distance from the centre. Hard to book on line but you do not need a tour the information is there to read. I would have liked to go down to the catacombs but no really clear how to do that. The on line booking needs to be made clearer....

Staying in Monti

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
