Audio tour more informative, fascinating history

Experience the history and wonder of ancient Roman times! The Colosseum has a fascinating story from the construction to its many events! If you’re interested in a tour I have done both the live tour where you can go onto the arena stage and the audio tour, each has its benefits. If you’re looking for a more informative tour that you can also go at your own pace I would go with the audio guided tour. If you’re looking to get onto the arena stage then go with the person guided tour.

There's not much else to say, it's the Colosseo. If you are in Rome, you can't skip on it. Buy your tickets online, it's going to be faster. Perfect place to take some nice pictures, plus it's in the center of Rome, everything you might want to visit is close by.

Doesn't take too long to see it either.

**My visit took place in January of 2020**

The legendary Colosium is a must see if you go to room. Is really not that expensive and a payed tour is not required to visit the place, though if you pay for a tour, they will take you to the bottom of the colosium so there are some advantages to paying for one. We were just fine just paying the entrance fee. We walked around the entirety of the Colosium and took lots of pictures. A gift shop is located at one of the top levels so don't forget to go there. Items are a little expensive so just a heads up. When we went there were people working at the center of the Colosium. A lot of renovation and archeological research takes place there. I highly recommended it. Follow me and my adventures @Sin_Aguayo_Canelito
