Our group of four booked the Viator Small-Group Ancient Rome and Colosseum Tour: Underground Chambers, Arena and Upper Tier. The tour was given by City Wonders and it was fantastic! All admissions were included and we didn't have to wait in any lines. We toured ancient Rome, Forum, Palatine Hill, and the Colosseum. It was a lot of walking but... More

Loved this - even in the rain. Would love to return someday and go down below to see the internal workings. Loved seeing the 'graffiti' of old.

This is just a must to see when in Rome. I lined up with my kids to go inside and it was worth the wait. Actually not that long in the scheme of lining up. We were there in June 2012. The history is clearly explained with signs and displays around and written in English.

I always wondered about what went on in the colosseum but until I toured the sight and learned about just how many killings happened I never appreciated Roman's thirst for blood. The sight is truly amazing and when you walk around you can really get a feel for the craftsmanship that they put into building the place. The lines are... More

Amazing place! I suggest going to the Roman Forum first, though. The same ticket gives access to the Forum, Palatine and Colosseum, but the queue at the Colosseum is considerably longer.

The Colosseum is one of the neatest ruin in Rome. It is very cool. The twelve euro fee to get in is worth it. In order to do a few other special things you need to make a reservation in advance. But without the reservation you can still see a lot. The Colosseum is definitely worth going to

Gorgeous remains of an old building with a massive amount of history behind it. Booked with a tour guide out front and got student discount with my UK I'd. A must see in Rome.

We made the mistake of not getting tickets early and had to wait for nearly an hour. Even without a guide (but with an audio guide for 6€) it was great.

I went with Dark Rome Tours and would recommend all to do the same,only 25 people per tour and the guide has a wealth of knowledge and answers every question.
