Planning Your Visit

  • Admission

    You can pre-book a standard ticket online that covers all three monuments in the area: the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Opening hours are from 8:30 AM until one hour before sunset.

  • Tours

    If you want to do more than just walk in and grab a few shots with your camera, we recommend a small group tour. We’ve done it and it’s well worth it. An expert will teach you about ancient Roman history, architecture, sport and little known facts that make the Colosseum come alive as you walk through it. You can also combine it with the guided tour of the Forum or Palatine Hill.

  • Getting There

    Colosseo station is located on Rome's blue metro line, two stops from Termini. You cannot miss the Colosseum as you exit the station.

This experience was truly the best. The staff was extremely helpful and this overall experience was convenient compared to all the other companies that were charging a lot for each ticket or simply sold out. Raffaella was the best with helping me and my family out and we are forever grateful. I Will book with you guys again and I will for sure recommend it to anyone interested. 5 stars were earned.

Marcius was a really nice tour guide! Very enthusiastic and good to follow if your first language isn't English. He answered questions very comprehensively so we could get the most out of the tour.
