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

A 1,900 year old collusion that held 60,000 to 80,000 people which still has some of the tunnel numbers in Romain numerals on it; can’t come to Rime and not see this historic structure.

Your trip to Rome/Italy won't be complete without visiting this attraction. Just an amazing place. Really Colossal! We took a guided tour and got lots of knowledge about this place.

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

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
