I've visited the Colosseo in 2012, 2016, 2019, and just again this month. It never fails to impress, and there are so many options as to how you will experience it that it can be a new experience every time. This time I went onto the arena floor (previously have only done this at night) and enjoyed the smaller amount of people and the different vantage point. The view of the hypogeum is also much better from the arena floor; I look forward to the new, retractable floor that is supposed to be coming for the Colosseo.
Additionally, on the second floor of the Colosseo, there have been some changes to the displays and they appear to be much expanded. It was nice to be able to see the models as well as the archaeological finds in this expanded area (it might have been this way in 2016, but it was a night tour and I don't recall).
The Colosseo is an absolute must when you are in Rome, at least on your first trip, and I feel that the curators/managers continue to make the experience more immersive and expansive.

Guided tour of the Colosseum was a highlight to my Rome holiday, the sheer awe of finally being in the presence of this historic structure! The tour was very informative with the guide having a genuine passion for his work. The heat in August was a bit intense but was worth it! If you are thinking of visiting the Colosseum I recommend a tour, it will open your eyes to much more.

In one of the most important cities in the history, don’t miss the most terrifying place in the world. It was an amazing experience and don’t forget book the ticket directly from their website, and the full experience one is highly recommended

You know you just wish many moons ago they would have kept more of its original space around it. It’s hard to grasp it with the roadways and cars zipping around it. It teaches you the layers of Rome. There are the ancient ones. The not so ancient ones, the modern updates. Must see. Good photo opps.

Taxi for sure out if there. It’s outside the main part of time. Cabbies take you good. No meter. Set price.

We didn’t do a tour and went round on our own and it was very interesting to imagine what it used to be like and to learn about the history.
A tip for photo oppportunities of the size difference is to go round the back of the colosseum (on the outside) where it was much quieter.

Rome guy tour (part of the tour guy group)

It was hard to find both a tour & availability that took in the newly opened underground of the colesseum. Angel tours who are always excellent recommended this one and it was super.

Recommend that you wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle that can be refilled as well as a hat and sunscreen as you are in the sun for a lot of the 3 hour tour.
The meeting point and entry to the site was well organised -80euro per person which oddly we paid in US dollars.

Note : 18 people on the tour so we had to wear our masks at all times even when outdoors. There were some antibacterial dispensers along the entry points.

We used the "Visit a City" app to schedule a tour of the Colosseum (including a tour under the floor where the gladiators prepared) as well as the Roman Forum. Tours of Rome was the actual name of the company that scheduled this tour through the Visit a City App.

Christina give us the tour and she was fabulous. She is very knowledgeable and she is really passionate about her tours. Ask for Christina!

Don't miss the Colosseum and get the tour. It is worth the time and the money.

Gazing through the ruins of the colosseum was quite overwhelming. It’s as if I have traveled back in time. Magnificent and awesome experience. This tourist attraction is a must whenever any traveler is in the eternal city-Rome, Italy.
