“best in rome”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is so amazing. If you have time study a little before or watch gladiator at least. The extra for the tour is well worth it. We got the tour that is offered inside you get to go into the lower area the the third level that is not open to plublic, not sure what you get if you buy the tour outside. It does meen more if you know all the history of the building.Buy your tickets ahead of time saves alot of time.

“A must see”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Of course a necessary part of a Rome visit. There are crowds so book your entrance / tickets in advance via the internet - and get a guide too - it pays to know what you are seeing.

“When in Rome...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

...you have to visit the Colosseum. Make sure to take note of Arco di Constantino out front before or after, as well as Palatine Hill and the Riman Forum (included in ticket price). It was amazing just to be standing amidst such history, even in impossible rain. Stunning site and gorgeous view out from the top.
