Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

This is an amazing place, a must see if you visit Rome. Take your time looking around in order to get the full feeling of what it was like in the colosseum years ago.

Stunning attraction in Rome but it does get very busy so make sure you get there early! There are plenty of people trying to sell tickets so you should get a good deal

Read about this when at school and seen it so many times in pictures and on TV, so when in Rome I just have to see this piece of history. We did a skip the queue tour with City Wonders (so got in quicker and got to hear all the gory details), but the real star is the Colosseum itself.... More

One of the best attraction in the whole of Europe built almost 1900 years back and almost shows the power of Roman Empire back then. A inspiration to modern day stadiums with the three concentric circle concept. Go inside, do not miss it. With the one ticket you can go around the Roman Forum, Colosseum and the Palentine Hill.

Awesome! Terrible things happened here over the centuries but nonetheless you cannot help but marvel at Roman ingenuity. A must see attraction.

I booked tickets on line and got into the Coliseum with little difficulty. We visited in the morning and it was 35 degrees.Whilst not being really interested in having an in-depth knowledge of all there is to know about the Coliseum we avoided the many!! tour guides touting for business outside and decided to go solo. We aren't really into... More

Words do not express suffiently this site. Just get there and soak in the atmosphere. We were told that the movie 'Gladiator' recreated what the Colossem wad like in its heyday. I'm heading back home to watch it again.

Wow...just wow! I guess it figures that given its name it's going to be colossal but it's just huge. Beware with people dressed in outfits who want you to have your picture taken for €5, they can become annoying.

Unbelievable experience and along with Museum Fori the highlight of our time in Rome. To stand there and try to imagine how hard it must have been for people over 2000 years ago was amazing. There are very good descriptions of what is what all over the Colusseum in English . You may have to line up for 1/2 an... More

We arrived at 16.15 and only waited in line for about 15 min. We did not get a guide tour course we just wanted to go ourselves. With a ticket of 12€ you can se the ground floor and the first floor which is actually the second floor. You can pay extra to see the basement and and third floor... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
