Amazing site! The history is unbelievable!
Fascinating to imagine the past. Very crowded but with the Roma pass we had no wait!

We booked a skip the line tour (with Arena entrance) via Trip Advisor website. The cost was around £53 per person.

We met at the Vivicos office on Via Fragipone near to the Forum. We arrived early - just to ensure where would meet later - but the team could take us on our tour earlier ! We were all given small radio transmitters and an earpiece which made the sound really clear.

We were 2 (English) people in a group of 8, the 6 others being Swedes. Renata, the tour guide was brilliant. Her English was superb and her knowledge was unbelievable. The tour lasted 3 hours. We visited the Forum first and then in to the Colosseum.

I could see lots of people queuing to get in to the Colosseum but we went to another entrance and were let straight in without any queue at the arena level itself where there were very few people - so we had a great view for photos etc.

The stairs up to the first floor are very steep but we took the lift - and there was a queue which took less than 5 minutes to navigate.

If your budget allows it I would recommend the additional cost of the smaller group and Arena entry. Our guide was fantastic and the small group meant we could stick together easily and also ask lots of questions.

The pace of the tour was fairly sedate which meant people who had any walking issues could keep pace.

Never buy tickets or souvenirs at the Colloseum. Waiting to buy tickets in the Colloseum line does not look like fun. We lucked out with a combo package at the Roman Forum and skipped most of the line. Secondly, we made the mistake of buying a few souvenirs for family at the gift shop, walking out to find that we paid 7x more than at any other gift shop or souvenir pop-up.
As for the Colloseum itself...
As Jews, the experience was unique because the Colloseum was built out of the spoils of Rome's destruction of Jerusalem. We would recommend getting an audio tour or reading/watching (we don't judge) up on the history of the Colloseum because the current archeological site requires a great deal of imagination.

Several sites offer "skip the line" tickets, but unless you read carefully, this does not actually mean you beat the queues! All entrants need to pass through an airport type security, and it is this that takes time. Thus unless you arrive before 8am or after 5pm you have a long wait even if you buy advance entry tickets. This applies to the Colosseum and the Mount. The place is swarming with touts who will offer to be your guide or get you a ticket to "skip the line" - none are official and none Worth bothering with.
Various well dressed Young folk also will try to interest you to sign a declaration against Drug Abuse. They then ask you if you have US dollars to give to this cause. Of course you don't know where this money will end - most likely in the pockets of the youths.
So YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !!

Great place to visit. You can't comprehend the sheer size of it by photos. Ignore the touts trying to fast track you in the queue. Whilst the queue looked really long it went down fast!
