  • Enjoy priority entrance to the Colosseum, the magnificent Roman amphitheater built thousands of years ago
  • Get a gladiator's-eye view of the Colosseum as you stalk the arena's floor like the warriors and entertainers of old
  • Ticket includes access to the Roman Forum – the hub of the ancient city – and Palatine Hill

Sink your sword into the very best of Rome with this triple bill of unmissable culture! Get a gladiator's-eye view of the iconic arena and explore areas that are off-limits to the general public. Then get to the heart of ancient Rome at the Forum, and see where it all began at the Palatine Hill.

With this Colosseum ticket, you’ll step into the sandals of a gladiator, on a once-in-a-lifetime visit of the bloodstained arena floor.

Feel the shivers creep down your spine as you walk across the age-old amphitheater, where warriors and wild animals once fought to the death before the Roman public. Your ticket includes priority entrance and access to areas most people don’t get to see.

After exploring the Colosseum, choose from four walking routes designed to enrich your knowledge of ancient Rome. Each path offers a unique glimpse into the ancient city, including sites like the square of the Roman Forum, the Via Sacra, and the southern slopes of the Palatine Hill. Routes take from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours.

Even without of rain we thought the Colosseum and the (much larger than we thought) Forum and Palatine Hill were extraordinary. Give yourself plenty of time for the Palantine Hill.

Very interesting and impressive attractions. Time on ticket was not exactly the same as timeslot specified when booking and you can only enter 15 minutes in advance. So we had to wait a little.

The app is super easy to use. Once we found the right line, we got right through security and were easily escorted to the arena floor. We also loved the add on audio to go with the tour.
