Description

Behold the mighty Colosseum! A building that looms large not just in Rome but in the minds of people everywhere. It’s truly one of history’s most iconic buildings. Of course, with such prestige come hordes of tourists, but this fast track ticket lets you bypass the plebs, like a modern day Roman dignitary! Plus - with this ticket - you have the option to visit the Colosseum for an hour and then get into the Roman Forum.

Let’s begin at the beginning. Emperors Vespasian and Titus built it from 72-80 C.E. Of course, they didn’t physically build it themselves, they just ordered thousands of slaves to do so. The Colosseum functioned primarily as an amphitheater where Romans of all classes could come and be entertained by games of a rather bloody nature.

Gladiators would be pitted against lions, or you could watch a good old-fashioned hunt or even an execution. It occasionally hosted events of a more elevated nature, such as a munera when a private family would rent it so that they could hold a private religious ceremony and show off their power and influence.

Over the centuries the Colosseum has been picked apart by scavengers and ravaged by earthquakes and time, but with 80 entrances, a complicated system of slave-operated hoists under the floor, ramps and trapdoors allowing for beasts, men, and scenery to be raised into the arena, it's still mighty impressive.

Up to 80,000 people would cram into it in its heyday, but now the local authorities limit it to a still-considerable 3,000. The lines are legendary, so this ticket offers you the perfect way to eliminate all the hassle associated with seeing such an icon of world history. Just make sure to follow the instructions on your voucher carefully and your entrance will be as smooth as possible.

You’ll meet a multilingual representative 25 minutes before your chosen timeslot (which is also stated on your ticket). Feel free to ask them any questions related to the tour.

Step inside these ancient wonders and feel like an emperor as you survey this monumental hunk of history.

Colosseum. An Icon (23 Feb 2017 - 07 Jan 2018)

Instantly recognizable, the Colosseum is the largest amphitheater in the world. And now, it's undergone a renovation so it can once again host cultural events (no gladiator battles, though). This informative exhibition uses paintings, artifacts, and drawings to put this incredible ruin in a historical and cultural context.

NOTE: This venue has free entrance every first Sunday of the month. This is often the busiest time to visit, but on this day no ticket is required.

Was very good ,nice place .

There was a lot of waiting around and confusion actually getting in to the colosseum. It did not seem very organised and approx 30 minutes was spent moving queues etc. That said, it was much more favourable than waiting in the enormous line. It just wasn't as streamlined as it could be. Once we were finally in the right queue, entrance was quick.
The additional entry to the Forum as part of this ticket, is a definite must see. There is ample time given in the colosseum to do both.

What an amazing place. Definitely not one to miss, in fact this is my second time visiting here and both times I have used Tiqets. The whole process from buying the tickets to walking past the long lines of people in the hot sun for fast track entrance is excellent! The ticket also enables you entrance into the Roman Forum, which for the price is excellent. Also I must mention how helpful and informative the staff where. I would definitely recommend Tiqets to anyone visiting Rome, I also bought my tickets to the Vatican museums and Sistine chapel through Tiqets and I was not disappointed 10 out of 10

Whilst it was easy to book online, organisation on the ground was rather poor and disorganised. It was rather shambolic.

The App is great, easy instructions. It was an extremely busy day. The guides did very well considering the demand. Would recommend.

Gets you through securty quickly but spent a lot of time waiting for the rest of the group to arrive. So if punctual you will wait around a lot. But staff were good.

It was absolutely fantastic and so easy to find, actually skipped a line as promised, only line is security. Very much worth it, time saver for sure on a hot August day. Just be aware that this is not a guided tour, we downloaded Rick Steve's audio tour for free as a podcast before hand and it really enhanced our experiences.
