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 visited this on a sunday. Was not to busy . We pre booked tickets through get my guide. It to 30 mins to get in. Research your tickets well as there are upper levels that you can get to for a little extra. But...More
There is lots to see and read about at the Colosseum. It’s a must visit while in Rome but pre booked tickets are a must to beat the worst queues. Booked and printed the tickets before leaving home from Coop Culture and took 10 minutes...More
Amazing. Advise booking before you go as long queues. No refreshments available so take snacks and drinks.
Only annoyance is constantly asked by the hundreds of tour reps trying to get you on their tours but a simple no thank you and they left you...More
I didn't see Russell Crowe, but I was thoroughly entertained.
I recommend buying your tickets in advance to avoid long lines. There will be very official looking people trying to sell you "tours" before you get to the front of the lines, telling you it's...More
The Colosseum is one of the busiest tourist attractions in Rome. Be sure to factor this into your visit, as queues can be enormous and slow moving. Be prepared to go through metal detectors and remove belongings from pockets, as this does speed up lines....More

Colosseum and Forum, 1 day with back problems? (4 Replies)
Hi all, I'll be in Rome this September with my mom, she had an accident last year and is now experiencing back pain, cramps, stiffness... She can walk/stand for about 3 hours straight in good walking shoes. Has anyone else who has back problems or trouble walking seen both the Colosseum and the Forum in one day? I was thinking of getting to the Colosseum first thing in the morning, spending about a 2-3 hour tour at our own pace so she can stop when she needs. Taking a long 2 hour lunch...More

You can certainly do that but just to let you know, you have two consecutive days to see the colosseum, forum and palatine hill with the same ticket. If she starts to get uncomfortable you can easily return the next day. Donna

Colosseum Ticket via Coopculture.it (322 Replies)
I just purchased my Colosseum tickets online via Coopculture.it however all I received was a billing confirmation. No tickets and it didn't ask me for a specific date. Did I do it right? I was thinking I would get two actual tickets.

I believe if you select a "print @home", then you print tickets, if not your email is the confirmation letter and the reservation code to show to the cashier to collect your tickets. The tickets are good until Dec. 31, 2014.

Persepolis: Really worth it? (16 Replies)
Salaam!, I'm putting together my return itinerary to Iran which will involve a comprehensive visit to places like Kashan, Yazd, and Shiraz, and I have a question about visiting Persepolis: Is it a must-see? Here is some context: over the last three years, I have seen more than enough ruins such that it a particular archaelogical site is not truly spectacular, I would rather spend my time wandering around a bazaar or picnicking in a garden, or kayaking on a river, or meeting local...More

If you are traveling between Yazd and Shiraz either direction I would stop by and visit as it is right off the highway and you could spend a few hours and break up your travel day. I have seen countless archaeological sites all over the world and found Persepolis unique, especially the reliefs and I enjoyed the other site nearby-tombs of Xerxes and others. It was essential to have a good guide otherwise I would not have understood the symbolism. I would skip Passergade.
