Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went on a tour of the Colosseum which allowed us to skip the line and have a guide explain the site. A lot of time was spent during the pandemic renovating the site since there were not visitors. Very interesting visit and recommend the morning and off season to avoid the crowds.

A savoir : il n’y a pas de billetterie sur place… il faut impérativement prendre ces places sur internet… c’est limite!!! Conséquence si vous ne programmer pas toutes vos visites, vous ne pouvez pas tout faire… et la partie Colisée, mont palatin et forum romain… sous la pluie c’est pas top et c’est gâché !

Loved the guide who had shared history. It is like going back in time. Lovely! The Coliseum had the Arcj of Constantine and other historical ruins right next to it. You can enjoy restaurants right around the corner.

Si vous n’êtes pas féru d'histoire ou meme si vous avez des notions, prenez un guide pour vraiment apprecier les lieux et comprendre l'ampleur historique de ce que vous verez.

Thru the years I've seen photos but seeing this in person and realizing that it was built with no computers, no motorized anything it truly makes you appreciate the grandeur of it all. And the fact that it still stands is a tribute in its self.

So worth a guided tour! I had been told that seeing the Colosseum from the Outside was totally sufficient so we almost didn't go, but they were wrong. We took a tour via Travel About and had Laura Antonucci as a guide. She was beyond phenomenal and made our trip to Rome, which was fabulous already.

Deslumbrante! Uma experiência única. Pode parecer um clichê em Roma(e é), mas é estonteantemente imperdível. Não à toa é uma das atrações mais visitadas do mundo.

A visit to this iconic building is a must. I have been going to Rome on and off for almost half a century and this magnificent building never ceases to fascinate. Our recent visit was with our grandchildren (and their parents!) for whom my daughter had arranged a personal guided tour. While it didn't come cheap it was worth every penny. Our guide kept the kids' attention brilliantly. Even if you don't go to the expense of a personal tour (which by-passes all the queues), a guided audio tour is recommended, but book in advance. Our tour then went on to the Forum and the Palatine which were also impressive.

Uma das experiências mais fantásticas de sempre. Mas não é fácil entrar no coliseu porque os cartões de crédito por vezes não funcionam na bilheteira online fornecida apenas por código QR.
(A única forma rápida e segura de comprar bilhetes físicos oficiais é no "Museu Arqueológico Prisão Mamertina")
CUIDADO com os vendedores ambulantes que levam uma fortuna e os bilhetes nem sempre são aceites.
