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.
I recommend to visit Colosseum in a guided tour, you will get more out of it. Without that it's just a pile of stones, even the size and measures will amaze you. The maning of each detail and interesting stories behind is the 'beef' for...More
If you just want to do a tick mark of visiting the colosseum and clicking pictures there then can easily do it by yourself. (Would also suggest having a Roma pass since it made it easier not standing in the queue) But if you want...More
Just a few small queues we bought fast track ticket online and waited about five mins security ok what you would expect in this modern age but not a problem makes you feel safe whole experience was good and informative lots of photo spots overall...More
I was so happy to finally get to see this historical site. We did not have tickets to go inside and the line was long. Since we actually only had 1 full day in Rome, we decided to take in the outside of the Colosseum...More
I've been to the Colosseum twice now, once in 2004 and again in 2018 and both times I was not prepared for the overwhelming amount of tourists that visit there, so the line to entre was a 3 hour wait. Be prepared for the long...More
This is on the very short list of things you have to do in Rome, one time only. We booked our tickets through the hotel and are very glad we did, as there are people everywhere trying to sell your tour tickets when you arrive....More
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
Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
I cannot answer your question specifically because I hired a driver in Rome and HIGHLY recommend that. Our driver did all the leg work ahead of time. We walked right up to the entrance, passed a zillion people and walked... More
I cannot answer your question specifically because I hired a driver in Rome and HIGHLY recommend that. Our driver did all the leg work ahead of time. We walked right up to the entrance, passed a zillion people and walked right in to our tour. After about 1 hour he took us to his favorite places in Rome that would be difficult to get to on your own in a timely manner. We did Rick Steeve’s “Heart of Rome tour” (you can download for free) and saw so much on our own. Our driver was worth every penny - especially for a short time in Rome.
