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.

Just love it. Skip the queue tickets booked online in advance avoids the very lengthy queue. It’s just an amazing site to visit a definite must on a trip to Rome

Can be enjoyed without entering. Interesting once inside. Areas in front of the colosseum crowded with vendors, tourists, pickpockets, vagrants, beggars and sketchy characters. OK if you are part of a guided tour, otherwise, long lines and wait times.

I shouldn't complain about the crowd but I'm really want to. Busy and congested. Got the audio tour and couls barely hear it over the chatter of the crowd. Amazing place, but travel off peak if possible and it may just be spectacular.

So... We opted to join a guided tour in the evening to avoid queues and crowds. It allowed us to see the area under the arena floor as well as I have English speaking tour that gave us all the details. This place is incredible.
