Perfectly held for the one spot on Earth that has been plundered this much. It gives you a chill to think about all that has happened on that very spot. The senators, the animals, the gladiators...

I had been wanting to go to the coliseum since I was a kid and I finally made it. I was not disappointed. We all met at the Metro station and then walked to Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, Our tour guide gave us many facts about everything that we saw, and then we went on to the Coliseum.
We had paid a premium to be able to walk on the floor level of the structure, and it was well worth the money, especially if you enjoy taking picture. From the floor location you can great views of the structure and the room located below the floor. The tour also included a trip to the lower level where we were able to see the supporting structure.
If you are in Rome, a tour of this structure is well worth taking.

The Colosseum is a must see attraction in this beautiful city, however it was here that we have been told may be the place where our camera with all of our holiday photos may have been taken out of my bag. It has the highest percentage of petty theft so just be aware of your surroundings. Other than that it is well worth the wait to get in just to see history at its most grand. The entrance fee is only 12 euros and is valid for 2 days. There is a lot to take in and a lot of guided tours if you choose to do so. Definitely a must see on your trip to Rome

Took a guided tour of the Colosseum with a small group,hence no queueing and the tour guide was very informative and helped to bring its 2,000 year history to life.Its always very busy,and the steps are quite steep to climb,but if you're in Rome,this is a must-see

Lots of things to learn in the museum inside the colosseum and be amazed with the architecture and design of that period. Bathroom is hard to find and expect long lines during peak season.
