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.

    Our visit to the Colosseum with my family was a captivating journey through time, immersing us in the grandeur and history of ancient Rome. As one of the world's most iconic landmarks, the Colosseum provided a backdrop for unforgettable moments of discovery, wonder, and connection with the past.

    Step into Ancient Rome:
    From the moment we laid eyes on the majestic Colosseum, we were transported back to the glory days of ancient Rome. The towering structure, with its impressive arches and weathered façade, stood as a testament to the ingenuity and engineering prowess of the ancient Romans.

    Walking through the grand amphitheater, we could almost hear the echoes of cheers and the clash of gladiatorial combat. Our imaginations ran wild as we envisioned the spectacles and events that once unfolded within these ancient walls, from epic battles between gladiators to thrilling chariot races.

    Educational and Interactive Experience:
    Our visit to the Colosseum was not just a sightseeing excursion but also an educational and interactive experience for the whole family. We joined a guided tour led by knowledgeable experts who shared fascinating insights into the history, architecture, and significance of the Colosseum.

    Learning about the construction techniques used by ancient Roman engineers, the social dynamics of the games, and the lives of the gladiators added depth and context to our visit. Interactive exhibits and multimedia presentations further enriched our understanding of this iconic monument and its place in history.

    Panoramic Views and Photo Opportunities:
    As we ascended to the upper levels of the Colosseum, we were treated to panoramic views of Rome's historic cityscape. From this vantage point, we could see the majestic ruins of the Roman Forum, the towering dome of the Pantheon, and the sprawling city beyond.

    We snapped countless photos to capture the beauty and majesty of the Colosseum, pausing to soak in the breathtaking views and create lasting memories with our family. Each photo served as a reminder of our shared adventure and the timeless allure of ancient Rome.

    Family Bonding and Shared Discovery:
    Exploring the Colosseum with my family was more than just a tourist attraction—it was a journey of discovery and shared bonding. We marveled at the ingenuity of ancient Rome, pondered the mysteries of history, and reveled in the joy of exploration together.

    As we walked hand in hand through the corridors of the Colosseum, we forged memories that will last a lifetime. Our visit to this ancient marvel served as a reminder of the enduring power of human creativity, resilience, and imagination across the ages.

    Conclusion:
    Our experience at the Colosseum was a testament to the timeless appeal of ancient Rome and the profound impact of history on our lives. As we bid farewell to this iconic monument, we carried with us not only memories of its grandeur but also a deeper appreciation for the rich tapestry of human civilization.

    One of the most visited squares in Rome, there are always crowds of people, street artists and musicians. At its center there is very nice fountain.
    In the past it was a Roman stadium.

    A must visit part of Rome. Just over the river. So many lovely bars and restaurants and live music. As you cross the river you can feel the atmosphere change, more relaxed, less traffic. It’s pretty, quirky, fun. Not expensive.

    In the last 10 years I think I have visited the Palatine Hill 4 times and there was always something new to see that I had previously missed. Here was the center of the Roman Empire (along with the adjacent forum). If you want to save yourself the huge queues to enter, it is best to buy a ticket in advance and enter through the entrance on Via Celio (Biglietteria Palatino)

    In my opinion, this is the most interesting place in all of Rome. Here is collected the history and fate of the Roman Empire. If you want to avoid the huge lines to get in, it's best to buy a ticket in advance and enter via the Via Celio (Biglietteria Palatino) entrance

    This was our first visit to the castle while visiting Rome. We didn’t buy a ticket ahead of time, so we stood in the line. Luckily, it only took about 15 minutes to get in. The walk through of the castle was really interesting. I liked the signs in English that explained the various parts of the history. Probably our favorite part were the views from the viewing areas. We took some incredible pictures of the Vatican and the rest of Rome. I highly recommend you take some time to visit the castle and learn its rich history.

    An impressive monument from below and lovely view from the top.
    A heavily enforced one-way system and from our view, the museum and tickets to the top were a little steeply priced.

    This is the Mother Church of Roman Catholic World. It is the oldest of the papal basilicas in Rome and also considered the oldest public church of any kind in the city being build in 324 AD. This was the papal residency for nearly a thousand years until 1309. It is also where all Popes were crowned until 1870. What you see here is beautiful and immensely important to the Catholic World. San Giovanni is free to enter and visit and is open from 7am to 6.30pm daily.

    The exterior facade was designed by Alessandro Galilei in 1735 and is imposing. You will find a stacked portico, topped with A colossal figure of Christ surrounded flanked by the apostles and various saints. Be ready to walk back into Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano to take pictures of the entire facade. Make sure to spend a minute or two admiring the scale of the bronze door

    The interior is enormous and there is much to see. It was designed in the 17th-century by Francesco Borromini. What you will see is a central nave that is 70 metres in length and lined with an incredible collection of sculptures of the apostles, the work of Italian master sculptors of the early 18th-century.

    Other highlights including the Cosmatesque patterned marble floor and papal cathedra in the apse as well as the delightful 14th-century, gothic style ciborium. The panelled ceiling, wall frescos, artworks, sculptures, and other interior decoration are a feast for the eyes. There is a 13th-century cloister (€4 per person). There is a gift shop within the church and other interesting things to see outside and nearby the basilica including, the Baptistry, a landmark Egyptian obelisk and Santa Scala.

    The historic center of Rome stands alone. Rome is rightfully called "The Eternal City". Here you can enjoy the history of the Roman Empire, going back more than 20 centuries ago, with the ultimate recognizable building the Colosseum and some steps further the masterpieces of 16th century Bernini and Michelangelo and after negotiating some interesting narrow streets, the 20 centuries old church, the Pantheon. The historic center of Rome is never boring, because also thrown in are any number of restaurants, bars and ice cream counters. But beware of the tourist traps and the crowds of tourists, because the unique place that is Rome could not be kept a secret for long.

    The church is amazing, and the painting on the ceiling is breathtaking! You can pay 1€ to get a special picture in the mirror facing the ceiling.
    However, the church became popular on the internet, so it was very crowded, and the line for the mirror was huge, so be prepared!

    The square and the stairs are absolutely crowded at all times! But once you climb the stairs, the view of the city is very beautiful, so I consider it worth of facing the crowd!
