“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Did a self guided tour through the colosseum. I am a history buff, so I knew enough history to make this interesting on my own. If you don't that much about its history I think I would be a good idea to to a guided tour.

“Breathtaking at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

When you first see the Colosseum its breathtaking, how on one side of the road is a moden metro station and opposite is this magnificent ancient ruin. When its lit up at night, its truly fantastic.

We booked in advance which paid off, as the queue was massive.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Obviously a must see while in Rome - book tickets on-line through Omniticket biglietti - walk straight in avoiding the queues and also includes entrance to The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill - avoiding queues there as well.
