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.

Look, isn't this one of the reasons you are in Rome? Sheesh, just go see it. But, go early and get a reservation if you can. The crowds are huge during peak visiting times, and you'll wait in line for a long time if you...More

This iconic place is spectacular. Amazing what they built way back when. We went on a private tour with access to the underground and the Roman forum. Pricey, but it was worth it. The place is very crowded outside, and skipping the lines is a...More

Inevitable visit it . It is not possible to go to Rome without visiting the Colosseum. And it is impossible not to see Rome in the life of a person (at least once in their lifetime, everyone should visit Rome)

We decided not to get a skip-the-line at the Colosseum, but only because it was 4:00 PM on a very hot day so the lines were shorter than usual. Still it took us 20 minutes wait to get in but of course it was well...More

Make sure to use a tour company, I recommend a private tour, to skip the lines and learn all about the Colosseum in a very up close, personal way.

This is a must see but beware of numerous hawkers and sales people trying to sell you something. Pre purchase your entry tickets to avoid the long lines.

It’s hard to review this place because it doesn’t matter what the quality of the tour and supporting facilities are like. You can’t visit Rome and not see the Colosseum. As it happens, the facilities are very good, and the place itself is just as...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as

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

Our boys were teens and free, but we didn’t buy tickets online as my husband and I used the RomaPass to get in. It’s possible they charge the 4 euro for getting the free ticket online. When we went to the colosseum we... More

I didn't book in advance, when we reached the site we met a Pakistani guy (by a coincidence) who handled everything so we did'nt have to wait in the queue for hours, we skipped the line.
