Liked the fact that it was easy to get to. Disliked - none. We did pay to have a guided tour which was well worth every penny.

Was an amazing trip back over 1,800 years. The visit would have made no sense at all though had we not had the audio guide, well worth the four euro or so to have it.

I liked the history and finding out what used for, how much it holds, how class driven and how it evolved. Did not need a guide just read material.

Breathtakingly beautiful. One of the major attractions in Rome to see. Buy tickets beforehand to avoid queues. We went inside - there are displays you can see as well. Its beautiful during sunset. Makes me want to go back.

You must see the Colosseum and hang out a little while outside of it. Go a little bit around and check the surroundings it is beautiful.. I was there twice about noon and at night when the Colosseum is illuminated. I would recommend to go to both moments to get these different impressions. If you want to go inside you... More

We had a guided tour booked through the State Tourist Office diagonally opposite the Colloseum entrance along from Metro Colosseo. Our guide, Gino, was really passionate about his subject and made the history come alive with many details of daily life and ancient Roman existence. Slightly to the East in Via Lubicana, you can also see (without guide) the ruins... More

Slightly crowded, nevertheless impressive. Many tourists pointing their cameras made it slightly hard to see anything.

We have visited Rome on several occasions and been inside the Colosseum before. It is very interesting as are many of Ancient Rome. Easy access by the underground Metro leads out to the street directly beside the Colosseum.Let your imagination go wild looking at the structure that has stood the test of time, war, revolution and destruction.
