This is a wonderful addition to seeing the Colosseum. It does not necessarily take as long to tour as the Colosseum and is well worth it. The historical significance is impressive.

Well I guess the titles says it all. At least spend there an hour or two just to enjoy all the amazing views. Both from the ground floor and the higher balconies.
