What people are saying about Rome

Great experience despite how busy it is - worth getting skip the line

The skip the line ticket was a great recommendation from friends. We saved so much time and hassle by using this option. Even though it costs a little extra, I highly recommend it. If you don't like crowds then I highly suggest you don't go round these museums or go to the Sistine chapel. We did not go during peak season, but even so it was so busy that we were basically just pushed along the whole time. We somehow managed to get a few of the seats around the edge of the Sistine chapel and were glad of it so we could actually appreciate what we were seeing. You are otherwise made to stand in silence in the centre of the room, or ushered straight out. There was of course an overwhelming amount to see and it was a great (if claustrophobic) experience.

You have to traipse through the whole museum. Very crowded

Definitely do the option to skip the queue, else you’ll waste the day stuck on the sun for hours. Beware of the tours trying hardest to make you buy additional tickets. You’re not told you can’t take photos of the Sistine chapel until you’re about to enter. After about 2hrs of a crowded line of cattle trying to get there through the museum, it’s disappointing not to be able to take photos! However, saying that, the Sistine chapel itself is actually awe inspiring. But the problem being so crowded, the security staff usher you through very quickly! Not ideal, so be prepared to be treated like cattle.

Great option to avoid lengthy admission queues.

Once we found the meeting place and our guide everything was well organised and, other than the queue for security checks which cannot be avoided or skipped, entry was quite quick. The length of time we had inside the Colosseum was enough to see everything and take it all in at a reasonable pace. This was followed by guided entry to Palentine Hill/Forum which, again, was quick and easy. I would definitely book again through this company for other tours/events.

Rome: Colosseum Skip-the-Line Self-Guided Tour Reviewed by Judith, 10/06/2019

Ideal combination of guide outline and own pace exploring.

Much better than doing a complete guide led tour. Our guide was absolutely excellent and knowledgable and full of enthusiasm. (Did not catch his name but he was proudly Rumanian.) Was our preference of tour after doing complete guide led tour of the Vatican Museum to be able to do things at our own speed. Only reason this is not five star is because finding right tour company at site and group allocation is pretty shambolic.

Booking a skip the line ticket is a MUST!

It was a joy skipping past the huge line at the Colosseum. We got in with no hassle and it took around 10minutes max, versus some people who had been waiting in line for hours. The Colosseum/Palatine Hill/Roman Forum were incredible. So worth the money and would do it all again in a heartbeat as there is a vast amount of things to see at Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, could spend a whole day just at those two sights.
