There is no doubt the Colosseum is just amazing! We went inside, the queues were large and very disorganised but somehow we got in very quick after an initial 20 min wait.
It was utterly sweltering heat though and there is no cover in there obviously so between the overcrowding and the heat, my 9 year old just wanted to hurry on out of there but he managed.
Our guide was knowledgeable alright but his italian accent was so thick that my son hadn't a notion what he was saying
Shout out to the lads selling ice cold bottles of water everywhere we went while in Rome. Would have had heatstroke otherwise!!
I suppose the Colosseum is worth the price tag to see it once but really the best parts are outside and the surroundings. We visited here as part of our hop on/hop off tour.
