Insider Tips About The Colosseum in Rome

Check out what real Booking.com customers are saying

“Everyone knows the Colosseum is the prime landmark in Rome, but also check out Castel Sant'Angelo - it's a medieval fortress built on top of Hadrian's tomb, and you can see everything from the ancient foundation up to the lavishly decorated papal apartments on the top floor. And the city views from the battlements are amazing!”

“It's amazing to walk inside the colosseum and imagine how things were few thousand years ago. In the book store of the colosseum you can take a look at some graphic illustration(it's kinda cartoon like) overlaying on the photo of the ruins. It really brings history alive when you're looking at those old stones alongside with those graphic illustration. (We actually bought that book because it's pretty cool!)”


“The fact that almost every street has a famous site and most around the Colosseum have dozens of Roman Forums in various stages of presentation for tourists, which allows you to invision what the Roman Culture must have been like hundreds of hears ago!”


“Because it's not a big city and there is so much to see when wandering between the 'big-ticket' sites like the Colosseum and the Parthenon. Walking allows you to come across the tiny pizzerias and cafes which you'd never see if you were on a tour bus or in a car.”


“I suggest visiting the city outside of the summer months. My family went during Christmas and though there were crowds, they were small. I can only imagine the lines and congestion in the summer. Also, if you really want to go to the Colosseum, get your combined ticket at the Palatino first! We paid 24 Euro total for my family (children free) to gain access to the Palatino, Roman Forum, and Colosseum. Worth it when I saw the crazy line into the Colosseum and we just walked past it all.”


“We went second weekend of November, lucky with sunshine and temp was 20 degrees, so comfortably warm and just into their winter season so fewer tourists. Avoid visiting churches on Sundays as services in progress means restrictions. Mondays some museums closed. Get a tour guide for some things, essential for the vatican, otherwise it is a visual overload with no time to consult the info, so much better to listen as you look. Vatican is always crowded so easier to follow your guide and also prepaying means you avoid the huge queues to buy tickets. Angel Tours highly recommended. When going to the Colosseum, choose the Palatine Hill ticket entrance to avoid long queues at Colosseum entrance.”

“It is breathtaking. If you dont see this structure you have wasted your trip to Rome.Roman forum is right next to it which you should combine with this. Take a priority ticket to skip the lines and take the audio tour if you have time and are super enthusiasts. It will take you a day to see it completely. The ticket is for both attractions. If running short of time or not too deep into art, take one of the city wonders tours. They go over all the important attractions, give a good explanation and you will be out in 3-4 hrs. They did a really good job, very informative. Underground tour is very good but that is available only with guided tours”

“The lines were too long to see the inside of the Coliseum. we walked all the way around and enjoyed it from afar. Had a late lunch across the street on the back side of the Coliseum entrance. It was all good!”
