Transport to get here is quite troublesome , took us almost two hours to get here. Must visit place for tourist.

We did the tour and learnt so much more than what we would have read out of a tour book. The tour guides are highly educated and passionate about their history. One of the best tours we have done ever.

Must come to the Colosseum if you’re in Rome! One of the coolest structures we’ve ever been in. It was crazy being in there and imagining all the games and events that took place there.

We do not have much time so we see it only outside. It was magnificent. I think if you visit Rome you have to go to Colosseo.

We didn't hire any guides or audio guides but instead just looked on google for information on the Colosseum. We pre booked tickets in the UK and just collected passes to go in and got free passes for the children aged 13 &10.

Awe inspiring. We did not take a guided tour, opting instead to ramble around on our own and at our own pace. The public facilities are horrendous, so do try to take care of that before your visit to the Colosseum!

We bought our tickets there, at ticket booth right between the Colosseum and Forum. Were there in October. It was pretty warm in the in early to late afternoon. Loved the Forum. Bring water. Enjoy!!

Reduced entrance might be talking about students as they get a discount. If you buy a timed ticket you will skip the queue - we did this and it was definitely worth it as it gets very busy,
