There is so much to see inside the Vatican museums that you'll want a few hours at least. Great selection of art inside.

So make sure you book Colosseum tickets in advance online so you can guarantee your visit!

Colosseum Tickets: Buying & Visitor Tips

  • Short on time? Over 4 million people visit the Colosseum in Rome every year, so book a guided tour or reserve your skip the line Colosseum tour to avoid waiting in line for up to 3 hours.
  • Is it worth it to visit Colosseum Rome? As one of the New 7 Wonders of the Ancient World the Colosseum and Ancient Rome private tour opens your eyes to this remarkable ancient site.
  • Basic or premium? There are several options available for types of Colosseum Rome entrance tickets you can buy. The regular tickets allow you to explore the 1st and 2nd levels only. Numbers are strictly limited for the restricted areas and the 3rd ring. If you want to see these parts of the Colosseum, you have to book a tour and buy Colosseum tickets online. 
  • Security checks: recent years have seen heightened checks at Rome’s most popular monument, so bear in mind your bags will be screened by metal detectors (and the less you bring, the quicker you will get through!).
  • Money-saving tip: tour the Colosseum with combination tickets to another top Rome attraction. For example, book Vatican and Colosseum tickets skip the line access included or the Rome Platinum Pass (Castel Sant Angelo, St Peter Basilica, Sistine Chapel, Pantheon & more).
  • From March 1st, 2019, it is mandatory for Roma City Pass holders to make a reservation for the Colosseum Flavian Amphitheater. Explore your Rome pass options here.

Colosseo: Prepare Your Visit

  • Wear sunscreen: whether you choose to skip the line or join the queue, your day in the Roman arena is likely to be HOT. Don’t let sunburn ruin your day; protect your skin before you go! 
  • Watch your pockets: be wary of pickpockets in highly touristy locations. 
  • Choose an audio guide: thousands of years of history and bloody battles on the arena sands; don’t miss the opportunity to hear all of the stories on tours of the Colosseum when you buy your audio guide + Colosseum tickets.
  • Bring water: remember you are visiting an open-air landmark so prepare to be in the full sun all day, especially if you are visiting in the summer months. Make sure to stay hydrated. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes: Ladies, leave your stilettos at home, you wouldn't want your heel getting stuck in the cracks on your Rome Colosseum tour. 
  • Don't forget your sunglasses: Yes, the mighty amphitheater is truly something to behold. However, you will be staring up into the full glare of the sun, so do wear UV protected sunglasses.
