Overview

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.

The Colosseum itself is stunning and a must visit when in Rome - I can’t recommend the ROMA PASS enough for this. It gives you entry to your first 2 sights/museums and concession entry to any thereafter and it has skip the line access at...More

It lives up to all you would expect but I found it smaller than expected. Book your tickets online for the fast track entry queue.

We paid to join a guide at the Colosseum and it was well worth it as the information that he gave was amazing.

To see the place where so many Christians lost their lives for the faith is incredibly sobering and a very important place to see.

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

We weren’t able to do the underground tour as it was fully booked. However, we booked a tour for the colosseum minus underground through this site and it was great. Enjoy!
