Piazza right next to the Colosseo. There were a lot of tourists here from group trips. Seeing the Colosseo from this close distance is very impressive

Download the app tiquets, to book the time slot beforehand, cause ticketbox may be non-working and all the slots be sold out for the day. Also be aware street dealers selling the cheapest tickets for high price. Basically I think that those people bought out all the tickets) it’s disappointing experience

Very busy here but nice to see the collesseum from the outside. It is also very near to other Roman things. Lots of street entertainers nearby too. I would avoid anyone trying to sell you an entrance ticket to the collesseum - do it officially through the ticket office or online!

We were not aware about the ticket process so we just wandered around the Colloseum and it was a great experience. There were some people trying to sell the tickets but we were not sure so we just ignored them.

Square next to the Colosseum full of bustle and obviously with breathtaking architecture surrounding you.

Watch out though for dodgy characters who will compliment your dress sense and then try to give you a bracelet as a "present" and for touts trying to sell you tickets for the Colosseum (due to COVID the ticket office is closed, you have to book on-line for a specific entrance time, the touts come out with nonsense that the site doesn't work and they can help you, etc.)

Located near the Colosseum, and is very popular with those who just want to hang out after vsiting the main attraction. It is always filled with people walking around or sitting and enjoying the scenery. It's a definite vist when you re in thia area.

It was beautiful and sad at the same time. What an amazing structure and history. I didnt expect it to be so huge.

We are lucky last October to find this great Restaurant in front of the Colosseum of Rome. We had a good lunch (sea food). The service tip top and the personal so kind and gentle. Recommended for leisure and for Business Lunch.

Located opposite the Colosseum, the restaurant offers both breakfast and lunch. Service is prompt, polite and swift, ensuring that we were alright throughout the meal. Food portions are good. Great prosciutto pizza and ravioli in pesto sauce. Hot chocolate was warming and thick. Family was happy with the meal here.

Loved walking through the local park area and on to the Piazza for the Colosseum.
A great view all around.
Full of street sellers and some dodgy looking characters.
