It doesn't matter how many times I see this place my jaw just drops open. I couldnt visit Rome without at least one visit to the colloseum.

We were delighted with the awesome view. Things that I read only in books came up to live. The hotel suggested the tour and we were happy with the choice. Strongly recommended.

When entering the site, it breathes antiqueness. The walls with old pillars have been respectfully restored. Great place to go to!

You have to see this. It blows my mind while walking around the Colosseum that to think that hundreds of years ago Gladiators and commoners utilized that place as a place of entertainment. The air there is thick with history and interesting facts. Definitely do...More

Unless you a real history buff, a tour is not really needed. It will get you inside however, you can get pretty close without it.

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

Colleseum has a line for Roma pass which essentially is a skip the line. I would recommend arriving about 8am and be near the front of the queue for when the gates open at 8:30. Even the skip the line queue is a long queue... More

Yes you get to wander around the Coloseum after your tour and the ticket gets you into the palantine hill and roman forum.
