Attraction details
Fee: Yes
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.

This is a must-see iconic monument of Rome. As expected, it is very crowded with long queues. We booked a local tour with priority access, so we did not have to wait in line to get in. But once we were inside, we moved slowly from one section to another. The queue in the store was long and slow. It is an awesome piece of history but be patient. In comparison, we enjoyed the Vatican City tour much better.

Very crowded, once you’ve seen it you’ve seen everything, don’t waste money on a poor tour. Gladiator tours for the colosseum were 5/10, the actual thing is impressive but you don’t need longer than 30 mins.

Lots of history and it’s amazing that this is still standing but get ready for the crowds unless you go early in the morning. Had to fight to get a good spot for the pictures. We used a tour company which was helpful and efficient to navigate through the structure.

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
