Behold the mighty Colosseum, one of history's most iconic buildings! These priority-entrance Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill tickets let you stroll right past the ticket queues. Feel like a modern-day Roman dignitary and spend over an hour exploring the Colosseum, before accessing the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

Emperors Vespasian and Titus built the Colosseum from 72-80 C.E – or, to be accurate, thousands of their slaves did. It functioned as an amphitheater where Romans of all classes could come and be entertained by gory games. During its heydey, 80,000 people would cram into it, but today, the Colosseum has to settle for 3,000 selfie stick-wielding tourists.

Gladiators would be pitted against lions. You could watch a good old-fashioned hunt, or even an execution. Occasionally, rich families would rent the venue for private religious ceremonies, known as a munera, to show off their power.

Over the centuries the Colosseum has been picked apart by scavengers and ravaged by earthquakes and time. But today, we can still study its 80 entrances, complicated systems of slave-operated hoists, and multiple ramps and trapdoors, which allowed for beasts, men, and props to be raised into the arena.

With queues as legendary as the building itself, you'll benefit from these priority entrance tickets, which grant you pre-booked timed entrance as well as access to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
