Must do with Eleonora from The Roman Guy
Nov 2021
If you are going to visit the Colosseum, which I strongly suggest that you do, you should book the Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum and Palatine Hill with Eleonora Fanelli. She was the gold standard of tours. Eleonora brought this tour to life with her passionate stories and history of Rome. This tour far exceeded my expectations and it was entirely because of Eleonora's delivery. She is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Roman history.

Colosseum tour with Gigi was an unforgettable experience!
Nov 2021 • Couples
Everything was perfect! Gigi was truly amazing and fun! He answered all our questions and more! His knowledge is amazing and his English is perfect! The tour was so worth it! I really recommend the tours because if you go on your own you certainly miss so much information!

Entry Maze
Nov 2021 • Family
Advanced purchased our tickets through the main website for an evening English tour at 6:20. Seamless… until we arrived onsite. Tickets explain that you need to go to the main ticket office to procure your printed editions for admission. We were dropped off by our taxi about a 5 minute walk from the entry point. The entry of the ruins is actually located down an unmarked, long, winding staircase that descends down towards the level on which the colosseum is standing. The entire area surrounding the venue is bathed in tourists. We finally make it to what appears to be an entry (notable due to a que line). Still confused and unsure about where to find the ticket office (with limited time before the rapidly approaching 6:20) we questioned the staff. Kindly they said, “you are next. Just stay here and we’ll let you inside.”. I’m not sure if they were extra kind to us, or if the rules are lax, but our electronic ticket confirmation sufficed. Tour was informative and the guide took on a quick question from me and decided to address it with the entire group. I found it nice that he was willing to expand on the standard tour talk for questions. Tour was worth it. Just be prepared to give yourself extra time to navigate entry to help avoid a confusing start.

Definitely worth seeing, its impressing how old is it, and how many stayed the same, there was a lot people, but object is huge, so its still not crowded. Only one advice - official audioguide is senseless, not buy it)

Iconic symbol of Rome
Nov 2021
It was a bit hard getting into the Colosseum, even though my boyfriend and I had already purchased a Roma pass. No one told us we had to book the time of our visit in advance (because of all the COVID restrictions etc), needless to say the whole process was very confusing - plus the website for booking the time of the visit kept crashing.
It is definetely something interesting and a must- see but to be honest, I don't know if I would go back to visit again.
