“Nice photos”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We only had a limited few hours in Rome so we didn't have time to queue for the Colosseum but we did walk around it and take lots of pictures. Very busy with lots of photo opportunities with Gladiators. Lots of tour guide companies offering competative rates on tours.

“AMAZING SPECTACLE....”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Just awesome.It is one of the most spectaular pieces of Roman architecture and history.Take a guided tour and admire the scale of this building...it litrerally talks to you and if you listen carefully you can still hear the thousands of spectators revelling in the games that were set before them.....they say see Rome and die.....you will find out why at the Colosseo....ENJOY!

“Very good shape for the age of the building”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

There is quite a bit to see inside so don't just take pictures of the outside. Any newstand or kiosk sells the combo Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine tickets.

“Incredible Site”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Great site to visit and see what mankind is capable of doing for political reasons. Pity that the coliseum is not being preserved as it should, as you walk in you see the walls full of scrapings like...Joe was here 1987.

“A MUST WHEN IN ROME”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

Amazing, you really feel your in ROME looking around and the Colosseum. We caught metro which brings you out right on the Colosseum itself. By a 24 hour metro pass for 4EURO brilliant way to get around the city quickly
