Begun under the emperor Vespasian in 72 AD, and completed by his son Titus in 80 AD, the Colosseum was the largest amphitheater ever built.

What people are saying about Colosseum

It is an activity that is worth booking from the application because the demand is very great and you really save yourself the long lines to enter. We really liked the whole route but I think it is not necessary to set a meeting point because one thinks that you are going to meet someone and it is not like that, it is only to arrive and show the coupon. The route is fantastic, you have to bring water because it is very hot and there is nowhere to buy inside. Congratulations for the application

My second visit here. Prevooked tickets in advance. Been late 2 hours as walked with children (age 11 and 8) from apartment but Staff did let us in anyway. All pretty straightforward - audio guides can purchased in kiosks in Colosseum itself. Toilets on ground floor and water taps in many locations. Did enjoyed again this magnificent piece of history. Recomend to everyone

Cuma our tour guide and Miko our driver did am outstanding job. They were so knowledgeable and we saw places we would never have known about but for this tour. They were so enthusiastic about their jobs. Made the trip one of the most enjoyable things we have done in Rome. Took the night tour and it’s a great way to cool off after walking around the city in the summer.

Very uncomplicated, quick process when entering, were allowed in 10 minutes before admission.

Wonderful experience. Not to be missed. Easy entry with the skip the line tickets.
