We did a combination tour called "Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill" and were surprised at how much more there was to see than we'd imagined. It's a half day tour, so while it's a walking tour of a relatively large area,...More

The official one takes only credit cards. Tc avoid people who tell you skip the line. It is a scam these lines are for free entry. You will find the official in a kiosk.

Sorry, we bought the combined Coliseum/Forum/Palatine ticket which is excellent value and if your a history buff will occupy a complete day and more. Buy your ticket at the Forum booth to avoid queues
