Overview

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.

You have to visit the Colosseum - it's part of the deal! Having said that though the experience of being inside was actually less exciting than the view from outside. Make sure you watch out for it on the plane - best view ever! The...More

Dare I say I was a little disappointed by the Colosseum. I expected a huge arena, and found instead a sort of higgledy-piggledy pile of stones. It is, of course , magnificent in it's own way, and the history is incredible.

It's well worth booking a tour for this as there is a lot of background information which makes the whole experience better. We went in February and it ws crowded so would definitely recommend booking in advance.

We used a Roma pass which has its own entrance next to the group entrance to "skip the line". Children under 18 go free but you need to get a free ticket from the customer service desk inside. The Colosseum is stunning. A visual treat....More

2 areas to visit but not enough flexibility.. do some video presentation on app to download. And the queing could be much more effective. Maximum 10.minutes waiting time should be possible.. think customer/visitor centric!!!

Great wonder, beautiful and worth seeing. Book online, as skip the line is in not expensive (around €20pp) Unfortunately inside is not what you could expect, not much to remind of historical gladiatorial area, as the floor has been removed to show what's underneath.

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as

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

We weren’t able to do the underground tour as it was fully booked. However, we booked a tour for the colosseum minus underground through this site and it was great. Enjoy!
