It’s impressive from the outside an iconic building photos don’t do justice to the scale of this place.We did skip the line tour of the whole area it’s awesome. If you visit Rome you have to go.not just the Colosseum but Roman Roam.

Awesome site but Mad lines to get in or you can get approached a million times by personal guides. Was not sure who was authentic or not. Also too many junk sales hawkers approaching where ever you went

Buy the pass so you can skip the lines and the worst part of the event is over. It really is something that should be a part of your Roma experience. You have to imagine what it would of looked like and the battles between...More

Many people have written reviews of the Colosseum over the last couple of millennia, so I doubt I will be able to add much new! What I can say is that we paid a little extra and went on the night tour. It was worth...More

The colosseum is definitely a must if you’re in Rome! The place is amazing! It’s definitely worth getting a skip the line ticket, and a guided tour is even better (there are few information signs within the venue). If you’re interested in archaeology it’s also...More

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

Entry tickets for under 12 are free (we went with our 11 year old) but we had to pay for the tour part full price for him. We bought tickets from the coop website and collected on the day. Enjoy.

You should be able to book tickets online, that gives you quite a way to skip the line without dealing with the sharks out front who sting you. You can rent an audio guide directly from the museum too.
