HELP! - Skip the line tours

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has done any of the Skip the line tours in Rome, which one you would highly rate? If not, what would be the best way to get past the lines?

We will be visiting Rome in May and will only be there for two days therefore want to ensure we minimise our time waiting in queues!

Really appreciate any feedback!

Thank you,

Well, the only two sites where huge lines are a problem are at the colosseum and the Vatican museums. You can buy entry tickets to both that allow you to skip the lines without being on a tour. You can also book tours that will allow you to bypass the lines but a tour is not the only way to skip lines.

For the colosseum you can buy entry tickets at the forum or palatine hill. These tickets are good for all three sites and will allow you to bypass the lines at the colosseum. You can also buy tickets or book tours online at the official site.


For the Vatican museums you can visit their official site:


to book tours or buy entry tickets. Right now they are not taking credit or debit cards over the phone but you can still reserve the tour or tickets and bypass the lines. Once inside there is a special desk to pay for them without waiting in the regular line.
