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).

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.

Way better than waiting in the ticket line, easy to get in but do bring passport or ID for kids around 12-14 yo.
We did visit the Forum after but needed a map which was not supplied like the Colosseum. Otherwise well worth the money or you spend all your days in queues.

We're glad we booked, but were a bit frustrated that the start time was missed because the guides waited for a few missing clients for nearly half an hour.

The Tiquets service was clear and definetly fast tracked. Only down side was got to collesium early and discovered there were no public toilets out side at all. And inside the Collesium there was only one area of toilets with very very long ques !!!!!
