“Crazy relic of a different civilization”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

We went on our own. There are posted explanations, so I thought the tour phone we rented was a wasted expense. The Colosseum is proof that the Romans were highly sophisticated. It provides a fascinating look into the past and is a must for any visitor to Rome. Lines are long so make sure you have your Roma Pass.

“A wonder of this world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

So much history! We paid for a guided tour of this and Palantine Hill and it was well worth the extra cost. A must see in Rome

“Don't miss this excellent view into ancient Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

We went on a weekday just a few minutes before it opened and we were able to walk right in and purchase our tickets. We were warned about lineups so I guess we were lucky. This is a sight that should not be missed.

“Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

The only issue was the line to get in. Very unorganized. Get a reservation ahead of time for sure. Beautiful. Get an audio tour too.
