A great holiday in the Eternal City can only begin with a visit at the Colosseum, the symbol of two thousand years of greatness and magnificence of Rome.
It is located in the heart of the archaeological city, and to this very day, with a seating capacity of fifty thousand spectators, is the biggest amphitheatre in the world.
It was built by emperor Titus Flavius Vespasiano between 70 an 80 AD and, as it is well known, it was destined to the famous fights with ferocious animals, and to the bloody and cruel Roman games.
Today it is besieged by tourists from all over the world, since every single person, once they arrive in Rome, want to visit it! So be prepared to face a bit of a queue at the entrance, on average about 45 to 60 minutes wait.
Our advice is to go early in the morning, or late in the afternoon. Another tip to cut the line is to buy the entrance ticket online with or without guided tour, or to buy an entrance pass available for other tourist sites, among which the Colosseum is obviously included: and this too is a way to avoid waiting in line to enter.
For example we suggest: City Pass "The best of Rome", a three days pass with free skip-the-line admissions for the main tourist sites in Rome and Vatican, with an included audio guide.
Vatican & Rome City Pass (Omnia Card) is the most complete pass to visit Rome, with other 40 attractions at discounted prices and public transport inlcuded. Anyway remember that the Colosseum cannot accomodate more than three thousand people at the same time, therefore if there is a great influx of visitors you might have to wait.
