What people are saying about Colosseum

We had an amazing experience on this small group tour with Roberto, who shared a lot of fascinating history about Rome and the Colosseum. We were able to skip the line and access the underground, arena floor, and the second floor. The tickets also gave us access to the Roman Forum and Palantine Hill, but the guided tour is exclusively for the Colosseum. We only had 9 people in our group, which was nice, and they provided each of us with an ear piece so we can hear what our tour guide was saying even if we weren't right next to him. The only thing to be aware of is, if you book the underground tour, there may be a chance that they move the time of your tour because that's what happened to us - they changed it from 12pm to 1:15pm. Apparently, the Colosseum security may change the time of access and I guess the tour guide cannot do anything about it. Luckily, we were able to make it and had a wonderful experience.

I live that it was at 8pm as we went on summer. The only bad thing is that I bought the Spanish tour and when we got there it was in english. Other than that it was a great.

Vizitatea am făcut-o fără ghid. Nu am avut suficient timp. Dar a fost de neuitat . Singurul avantaj a fost ca nu am stat la coada la bilete.

In the voucher office the girls were very helpful and nice, also skip the line function was a huge huge help. Absolutely worth it.

the Colosseum, you have to do it of course, but at night in the basements, an unforgettable experience.
