We had a guided tour here which meant we bypassed a lot of the queues. We booked online sat outside and that worked well. The tour didn’t take us up onto the third tier sadly but it was interesting all the same.

I love the Colosseum, but you have to get the skip the line tickets and you must try to find a time with minimal tourists. Everyone treats the place as if there is no one else waiting for a view or to take photos!

It is an amazing monument, worth seeing even though it is crowded. Would recommend reserving tour upfront, because there are many people claiming to be guides, so you can never be sure.

Bigger than I imagined it would be. I’d advise getting a skip the line ticket, especially in summer. Lots of stairs, but there is a lift if needed. You need to be forceful to get near the edges for the best photos. Won’t say much...More

We didn't have much time when we visited, but we certainly enjoyed seeing the magnificent walls and looking down into the areas around the outside that have been excavated. Even without going in it was one of the highlights of our remarkable trip.

A very impressive ancient stadium and usually the first Sunday of every month, it’s free of charge to get in. You would probably need to queue for around an hour. The best bet is to get the combination tickets at Roman Forum first and wander...More

Inside it was ok but outside it’s beautiful - Maybe you should book the tour for the underground! That’s more interesting! In Dezember you don’t find so many people!

It’s an amazing monument and a must see when in Rome just because of the history and scale but honestly it was ruined for me with the constant hassle you get from beggars and people selling absolute rubbish. I understand these guys are desperate to...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
