Time is critical so do not waste too much time waiting in line. Best to get entrance ticket from either Roman Forum or Palatino. The Colosseum is the best of the three sites. Recommend visit the Colosseum near sunset so you can enjoy the site...More

It was inspiring to experience walking through this remnant of another time in history. When you stand in the same space of the early Vhristians, you are humbled by their journeys.

We had a guided tour here which meant we bypassed a lot of the queues. We booked online sat outside and that worked well. The tour didn’t take us up onto the third tier sadly but it was interesting all the same.

I love the Colosseum, but you have to get the skip the line tickets and you must try to find a time with minimal tourists. Everyone treats the place as if there is no one else waiting for a view or to take photos!

It is an amazing monument, worth seeing even though it is crowded. Would recommend reserving tour upfront, because there are many people claiming to be guides, so you can never be sure.

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
