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.
This is one I had been waiting to see for the longest time. I couldn't wait to get up and put my hands on such incredible history! An amazing experience but be prepared to share it with tonnes of people
The Colosseum is a must see when in Rome. The sheer sight of it is impressive. The guided tours are not really necessary, since most of the information given will be either on the exhibit's information section or you have already heard. However, going in...More

I checked the company that we went with (City Wonders) and they don't show anything available that day. You would probably have to check with other companies to make sure that that's true across the board. You might be able to get a private guide, but at that point it's probably way more expensive than a group tour on a regular admission day.
While free admission day sounds great in theory, we found it worked against us in Florence. We were there via a cruise ship, so we didn't have a choice as to doing free admission day or not. What we found is that the crowds are huge, since you have locals taking advantage of free admission as well as the tourists. We wanted to visit 2 museums and were only able to do the first one, as the 2nd on our list wasn't admitting anyone else by the time we got there (about 11AM!) because they were already full. If I had the option, I would choose to visit on a paying day for just that reason - you're assured that you'll get in and while crowds might be bad, they likely won't be as bad as on a free day.
