Owner description: Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

Long line, but held up because they limit 3000 people inside Colliseum at any one time. Otherwise wonderful. It was a nice sunny day, kind of brisk cold

Great experience. Buy the tickets at the roman forum or online to cut queues. Get the group guided tour which is good enough. Check the timings of these tours in advance.

I definitely recommend the guided tour. We entered the colosseum with our Roma pass and then we purchased the tour inside the colosseum. The tour is available in a bunch of different languages and the tour guides are very knowledgable. The area outside the colosseum is full of tourist traps and people selling cheap goods.

Cool and historic place in rome. You have to pay admission and there is security control. Easily accessible via Metro.

It is so fantastic what they built 200 years ago! And to know how their "theater life" was at those times. One is tempting to compare what we are building today and how we enjoy life today.
