Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

Worth to go and visit after dark as the lights are quite spectacular but the day time visit is well worth it as well. If you can, go for a tour with underground visit. It's not much but has a great feeling.

My wife and I had been to the Colosseum before so maybe that's why we weren't that impressed. Yet it is a must see simply by reputation. The building itself is a ruins, as it is supposed to be. It is always crowded so buy...More

Use skip-the-line. Even better to order it ahead of time. We thought the Palatino was even more exciting. Leave time for it too.

While visiting Colosseum you have to have a lot of imagination for the idea of how everything looked like in the past. There is a small "museum" part with some models of the original building. Beware, people outside will try to sell you "skip the...More

There's no way to describe how large and awesome it is. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and climbing many stairs. Try to go when it first opens and get a pass the line ticket.

We were on our honeymoon in Rome and visited the Colosseum. My husband is a huge Roman history buff, and he has wanted to come here his entire life. We were not disappointed! Yes, it's busy, even in the off season. But it's so easy...More

Monti
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

I doubt very seriously if there is a re-entry for any tourist site there in Rome. My visit was a prepaid, guided tour (which I would highly recommend getting) with a set meet and start time.
