Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: 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.

If you visit Rome you must see the Colosseum, from the inside out. This historic area will offer you a chance to walk and see El Arco de Constantino, y el de Tito, El Foro Romano up to la Plaza Venecia. At night, El Colosseum will offer you a different experience with all the illumination. On my trip, we were lucky to have the full moon to provide additional light and perspective.

Something needed to be visited!
Recommend to join the guided group not only because fast entrance but also because of getting plenty of information.

Enjoyed listening to the tour guide provide more information about the place, which was definitely much more enriching as many facts that she provided could not be found on panels or boards in the attraction. Tour took about 45 minutes which was a good duration. Afterwards we were then free to explore and take as many photos as we want. Knowing more history about this place gave me deeper understanding and greater interest in this amphitheatre.

A must-see when in Rome. Highly recommend doing a guided tour - you will be amazed at the history and stories and you’ll be able to skip the line or be prepared to wait for hours to buy tickets in one line and more hours for the second line with tickets. We did the OverRome tour. Our guide, Valentina, was very knowledgeable and knew how to engage kids as well. Well done.
