Highly recommend the tour! Learned so much, including misconceptions, some even in print on city maps, such as there were NO navel battles inside the amphitheater. The tour guide was a PHD and was especially knowledgeable and pointed out the truth from fiction about the function and reasons for the construction and games. Definitely a “must” when in Rome!
Highly recommend using a skip the line tour, every tourist wants to see the Colosseum and it is very crowded. Don’t engage anyone wearing a Roman costume, they want money for photos, best to ignore them and walk away
I definitely recommend paying the extra money to go with a tour guide. My daughter and I planned on going through the Colosseum on our own and decided to join a tour at the last minute. We learned so much from our guide that we never would have known by visiting on our own. SCAM ALERT: There is an elderly lady soliciting money from tourists just outside the Colosseum. You cant miss her. She is hunched over and wearing layers of clothing. She is actually a young lady posing as an elderly woman. I learned this as I attempted to make conversation with her.
It was my third time there , still amazed me , however I would recommend to visit the colosseum during the after or if you can take the evening tour . DUring summer gets so hit that is not easy to enjoy and appreciate it
No need to get a tour of the coliseum. Money wasted. Make sure before visiting Rome you get a good travel book on what there is to see with the history on each place. It is helpful and saves a lot of money.
They will try and sell you tickets outside to join a group tour and they will exaggerate the queue time if choose to wait but it does move reasonably quick. They will also try to say that if you don't buy the tickets before then you can only visit one floor inside but this is wrong, once you are in the whole of the coliseum is welcome to view!

The location was excellent, within 1 block, the Colosseum was in view and was a great landmark to find your way around. There were restaurants with in a few doors down. Boutiques close by. I believe the hotel had the oldest elevator. It was great!!! The staff was sooo helpful. Memo, the name of the staff man was always full of information and helpful. The breakfast had a great variety and was in a quaint enclosed patio, which made it easy to talk to other guests and made easy to enjoy. There was AC in the room if you needed it.

The room was large and comfortable. They do serve breakfast, although I was never there at that time. The hotel is within walking distance of the metro and the train station. It's an easy walk to Trevi Fountain. For those who enjoy longer walks, it's possible to walk to the Colosseum and old city. The hotel is quiet because it's on a side street and across from a plaza. The staff is very helpful and they provide maps and suggested routes wherever you want to go.

The owner is very very nice, attentive and tries very hard to make sure you have a great stay. The included breakfast was simple and very delicious. Coffee, pastries, juice etc. Very clean, quite and close to the colosseum and other major attractions. BONUS!! Keep your window slightly open and you'll wake up to the smell of fresh baked bread wafting in very early in the morning from the various bakeries next door! Highly recommend this hotel for the money! Enjoy!

Perfect location to see everything you'd like to in Rome, 25min walk West to the Vatican, 25 min walk East to the Colosseum, not to mention all the sites directly around you. Top tip: the hotel does not have a sign outside, but is at the exact address given, so just look on the keypad outside the door for the properties name and ring the bell! Great place to rest your head in between full days of running around the city!

The location is amazing, right in front of the train station! It's an apartment with kitchenette, like a studio, they have everything you need, and it's walking distance from the Colosseum. They meet you to let you in and give keys, great communication everything was super easy. The ppl are very nice and good to deal with.

The apartment is literally the same as the photos shown in Booking.com! It was cleaner than most hotels/apartments we ever visited. It is equipped with all the necessities which are all brand new. The location is also amazing - just a 5 minute walk to the colosseum and 10 minutes to piazza di venezia. Highly Recommended!

I stay here when I come to Rome. There are cheaper places but what I like about this hotel is it is right by a metro stop, has excellent wifi and is a 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum. They also have an excellent breakfast for 5 Euro.

The apartment was clean, tidy and quite modern in its decor. The location was also great as very close to a metro station, and a comfortable 15 minute walk to the Colosseum.

The apartment is about 5 km from the Colosseum. Be ready to walk ! The rest was ok. The apartment is clean. The staff are very nice.
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.
