It may be two thousand years old but the Colosseum is still the symbol of the eternal city, every year drawing thousands of visitors, meaning long queues and an endless wait.

Let me start off by saying that I love historical archaeology, so to visit the Colosseum was a dream come true. I'll start off with a tip, if you just want to walk through the Colosseum on your own time and not be bound to a tour guide, buy tickets online and print them out. Do some reading on it (wikipedia, etc) and you will be fine on your own. We arrived by cab around 9:30-10 and were bombarded by the normal tourist trap necessities such as people selling selfie sticks, "acting" roman soldiers offering to take photos (some charge you 20 euro for a photo) and tour guides. One guy kept following us saying they can give us a tour and skip the lines, which he claimed were 1h30m long. We said no thank you and continued to the line for ticket visitors. I kid you not, we were through the security and inside the Colosseum in around 10 minutes. Once inside, you're free to do what you want. If you wanted to do one of the audio tours, the line seemed pretty long. We just wandered around and were quite happy with that. To me, just walking around and appreciating the magnitude of where you're actually standing. To think that almost 2000 years ago, this was built and the history that goes along with it is breathtaking. Take your time, look around and appreciate the history of where you are. You will thoroughly enjoy it.

Thousands of times I passed it by while admiring it's outer sides, without having ever entered it. But what an awfull place to step into! Thousands of people blocking your way. Thousands of selfie taking tourists wherever you look. You cannot for one second look around and wonder about it's genuity. Just people, crazy people. So my advice is, do go to the Forum and the Palatino hill, but stay away from the inside of the Colosseum. Unless you can enter it by yourself, alone.

Best experience in my life. I was there about 2 months ago, and I really loved it. It was my dream since I was 8, and finally after 10 years I could make it. You should really see it for yourself, because it's beautiful, what people could do back then.

Skip the line pass online is great . Went on their official website the day of. Printed the ticket and by pass the line right in . A great deal of walking in and around the colosseum , palatino and Arco di tito area. This is a amazing piece of history to experience in person .

Awesome but only a 45 minute trip Tip: skip the tour guides and watch a five minute through explanation on YouTube using your local tourist data package! Tip two.. Down buy online.. Buy your ticket there because the online queuing is longer.

Amazing architecture and historical aspects. I opted for the underground tour which gives you access to the underground tunnels and third tier. Our english speaking guid was great. I booked through "Walks if Italy". He was very informative, let us take our time walking through both the forum and colosseum, even taking pictures for us. It was unforgettable, and I would visit again.

How can I not give the Colosseum 5 stars? It's one of a kind and one of those places in Rome that you must see. Just think of the history of this place, the fights, the crowds and the atmosphere. Again, this is one of those tourist places where - if you aren't part of a tour group, the best tip is to prepurchase your tickets online before you go.

Enjoy your visit. There's no time limit. Getting here early will help. There will be two lines, A Roma Pass line and a line for people who don't have a Roma Pass. If you have a Roma Pass, you'll get in pretty quick. You could opt for the audio tour but honestly, you don't need it. You could just walk around and enjoy yourself for as long as you like. They say no selfie sticks, but everyone inside breaks this rule.
