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.
We booked a guided tour ( Kolosseum and Forum Romanum) with skip the line tickets. This was a great experience and the three hours of the tour were packed with fascinating details and great sights pointed out to us by our tour guide (from the...More
It has been 2 years since I have returned again to Rome. Last time, I was able to to walk up to the Collisseo at about 5 pm and buy tickets easily. Now, the lines stretch for a very long way, at least an hour...More
We got there at 8am before it opens at 8.30 and the Q was not too bad at all. Once in it is well worth seeing, I really enjoyed just being in there and walking around although there are audio tours and other tours if...More
Enjoyed our time here. Make sure you book in advance ASAP!!!! It books up even a month before! We arrived for the 8:30 slot when opening and it was the best time to visit. When we came out at about 11am the queue to get...More
Enjoy this massive building from around and near!
There is no need to go inside ! Waste of time and long waiting under the sun.
Walking around its something that makes you understand why this is one of the best wonder of the world
The Colosseum is all about the history. We did an independent tour with audio ear sets. Being inside the Colosseum you can almost hear the roars of the crowds. Seeing where the people sat, where the animals were let lose, the sub floors and architecture...More
I came here expecting to see pugilistic bloodsport but instead I am baking in the sun with thousands of other tourists while some guy with a Greek accent or whatever talks about the Romans as if they were still relevant today. Also they didn't serve...More
How do you make your visit to the Colosseum new and fresh? Arrive by golf cart! Our group ditched the bus and rented these awesome carts to drive through town, at rush hour, and stopped at a little park across the street. We took pictures...More

If you are a US citizen, the answer is quite simple. Italian law states that you need to carry your US passport. Not a photo copy of it. Not a picture of it on your smart phone. Not a passport card (I doubt that Italian police will know what that is anyway). You need to carry your passport because it indicates that you are in the country legally with your entry passport stamp. If you are someone who easily loses items and fear that you will leave it behind at a restaurant or museum or when you take it out somewhere and decide to leave it in your hotel room, then you must be ready to deal with the consequences. If there is a random police check and you don't have it, you will probably be detained. Not minutes.....but hours. Yes, the police will eventually go to your hotel to retrieve it, but this will NOT be a high priority for them. It will probably leave you in limbo for 3-4 hours at a minimum. You can also be fined several hundred Euro. And leaving your passport at your hotel room is **not** a good idea. That is **very** unsecure. The only time it would be secure is when you are in the hotel room with it. If you decide to break the law and leave it behind somewhere, you really need to come up with a better idea than your hotel room.

It is recommended to only book through the official website CoopCulture. Be aware that nearly every other company overbooks and sells more tour tickets that what they have on hand. If you book elsewhere, you will likely get an email later asking you to modify your plans - either change the tour time, change the tour date or they might simply tell you that your reservation is cancelled. Sometimes they cancel reservations a week before your trip - leaving you scrambling to find another option.

Advise you NOT to book with Explore Italy Tours fir the Evening Underground Colosseum Tour with Prosecco . It is not with the extra cost and is promoted as two hour tour as I wrote in my review. Find a quality tour with another company of book directly with the Colosseum ax its their staff guide that does the actual inside the Coldseum tour.
