Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

A must see when going to Rome. It does get very busy and attracts a lot of tourists. Ignore the agents that stand outside and try to sell you a ticket or upgrade the one you currently have. Recommended doing the audio tour.

Being one of the main Roman attractions there is always a lot of people around the entrance fo the Colosseum. However, if you go early in the morning there is no need to pay extra for the skip the line.

Massive queues unless you go in with a tour group which we didn't want to do but I also didn't want go queue for 2 hours!
Lots and lots of touts pouncing on you every 2 seconds asking you if you have or need tickets. They are relentless!!!
I don't really know if I saw much more from the inside than walking round the outside. You can see through the giant arches so you kind of get to see most of it without going in. Nice but not worth the €70 odd we paid to get in. I would recommend booking online before you go to avoid having to either queue or doing a tour
