    The Wonders of the Colosseum
    Despite the summer heat, I trekked from my location in Trastevere to the Colosseum. It was all worth it when I arrived because my visit there was absolutely incredible. Admittedly, I felt a bit nervous at first, but my initial worries quickly evaporated as I marveled at the ancient architecture and historical significance of the Colosseum. The experience of exploring the various areas of the landmark was an exhilarating adventure, and the views were breathtaking. Regardless of whether you are traveling alone or with companions, I strongly recommend visiting the Colosseum. It's an unforgettable experience that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression.

    Do not miss this
    All the reviews are right. Nothing prepares you for this grand structure and the stories it inspires. It is very crowded, it is massive, there are parts where the steps are steep and it is completely worth your time. Must take a guide or a guided tour to get the best of the experience.

    Colosseum Gladiators Access Tour Fantastic Vantage Point!
    We took the Colosseum VIP Gladiators Access with Arena and Ancient Rome Small Group Tour. To stand at stage level where the gladiators once stood was an awe-inspiring experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of the history of the building and events that took place there, where VIPs sat, and how various players moved through the building. The tour group size was not too large. The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill were also great stops on the tour and we learned a lot from our guide about the significant buildings and events that took place in these locations as well. It was well worth the time and investment. Skipping the line was also a huge time saver. Our guide also recommended a lunch spot and even helped us find the place. She was a fantastic help.

    Too crowded
    It's still an amazing place to visit, especially with the right guide. If you are going on your own without the pricier priority access it's usually a longer wait. What I can say is this, I would not go again unless I had younger kids and only for them. It's so crowded that it was impossible to enjoy the magnificence of the place itself and the history. Way to many people cramped into the available space to enjoy. They should make reservations required and limit the number of people to preserve the experience for all but that won't happen bc it probably generates time of money

    Beautiful remains and a must-see if in Rome!
    We weren’t able to book tickets in advance as they had sold out on all the dates we were visiting in Rome. I had seen a recommendation that if you arrive early and join the queue, you can pay on the day. We did this and arrived at the Colosseum at 8am. The queue was reasonable at this time and we waited an hour for it to open. Total queue time was about 1 hour and 20 minutes. We got in straight away, and truthfully, doing it this way saved us so much money, the pay on the day price is a fraction of what you will pay for a guided tour. Once inside, we purchased the audio guide from the Colosseum for €6 each. The audio guide was average at best, but as we knew nothing about the Colosseum, it did provide us with some additional information which was helpful. We took it at our own pace as we weren’t with a guide. I think we spent about 90 minutes in total having a wonder around. It was crowded, however, it’s literally the main attraction in Rome, so I wouldn’t have expected anything else. Be warned, the tour guides that fill the place up will just randomly stop and kindly act like they own the whole place. Would recommend heading there early if you are struggling to pre-book, definitely worth the trip! :)

    Ancient Wonder of the World
    How can one of the Wonders of the Ancient World not get 5 stars? This place was unbelievable! It is a massive fête of construction at a time when there were no machines to move things and cut things into place. It literally took us a bit over two hours to tour and our tour guide cut some sections because it was so crowded and so hot, but what we were able to see was unbelievable. Our tour guide did an excellent job of explaining all the who, what, where, why and how about the Colosseum. The Romans indeed were master builders. No trip to Rome is complete without a tour of the Colosseum.

    Stunning
    This could be the most incredible location I have ever visited. An absolute must see. So much history, and so much has been preserved in the Colosseum. There is a visit flow which works really well so you can see so much of the site on multiple levels, with many great photo opportunities. We had a tour guide at the beginning and she left us to do the last bit alone at our own pace. Perfect.

    Bucket list visit completed
    A must-do if you're in Rome! We visited during the monthly Domenica al Museo (first Sunday of the month wherein nearly every heritage site in Italy is free entry) and so got to the site at 7:15, and only had to wait 20 minutes from opening at 9am before getting our free ticket for the Colosseum, Forum and Palatine Hills. Exploring and learning more about the site's history, particularly away from the well-known ancient history, was really interesting. Being able to walk around the 'top floor' is such a unique and special experience!

    Definitely worth it
    I was really questioning if I wanted to visit a place which was used as an entertainment for bloody sport. The purchasing of tickets was put off until the last minute, and when I did enter the colosseum it was worth it to see the history and the architecture. Walking in the arena and the underground is not something you will forget.

    A Jewel of Ancient Rome
    You can see why the Colosseum is the number one attraction in Rome. I was fortunate enough during my stay to have a few high vantage points to photograph this magnificent structure both by day and night. Early morning and late at night are the best times to take external photographs of the building as there are no people around. If you go inside opt for your own self guided skip the line tour as the queue is shorter and you can take as long as you wish. It was very busy for our 3pm visit mainly because of tour groups who ruin the experience in every venue in Rome. The interior of the Colosseum is mind blowing and definitely worth the visit when you stay in Rome.
