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.

Amazing historical site, we arrived about 20 minutes before opening time, no lines quick entry. I did pre purchase tickets, but the normal entry was no longer in regards to waiting. The site is very interesting with easy to read signage around describing the history...More

The Colusseum is a must see in anyone's book when visiting Rome. We bought pre-paid tickets (definitely a good thing as it saves some queuing time) with Audio (headphone). I would not recommend the Audio bit, it's somewhat dry and sanitised and doesn't bring to...More

You need to get a guided tour which comes with a skip the line, otherwise you won't learn much, and that's after waiting ages to get in. Fascinating place. Like nothing I've seen before.

Had such a lovely visit was lovely to go In and see the colosseum in person. Was very busy but was nice walking around and imagining what it would have been like so long ago and seeing how old the building is. Loved it!

Really worth paying extra to see this at night and access the arena and below, learnt a lot from our guide but very tiring when towards the end of the day.

This is a must do for anyone visiting Rome in my opinion. You can only admire the architectural skill that must have been involved to build this amphitheatre over 2000 years ago. I would advise anyone going to look online for skip the queue deals...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

Budget for either wait in the queue or pay to skip the line. During holidays lines for tickets are long and skip the line tour is preferable. We did a combined tour of the Form and Colosseum but not the extras inside... More

Visit the Castle of St Angelo, when you get to the roof there is a restaurant over looking the ENTIRE city. I couldn't recommend it enough.
