The Colosseum is a massive ancient amphitheater in the center of Rome. Picked apart by scavengers, ravaged by earthquakes and time, the Colosseum still stands as an impressive symbol of life in Ancient Rome, the power of the emperors, and the durability of the Eternal City.
This huge marble and limestone structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators, all there to revel in the various forms of (mostly violent) entertainment, such as hunts, gladiator battles, and executions.
Check ticket availability
We purchased skip the line tickets here but upon arriving there wasn't any queue so I don't think skip the line tickets are necessary for the coluseem.
It's an amazing site which makes for great pictures.
For the Colosseum, we were also able to skip right past the lines to pick up the audio guides before entering the stadium.
Pre-ordering made everything less stressful.
It was much more confusing when we went to the Collesium. The crowds were ennourmous and it wasn't stated clearly (in the app) what we are supposed to do, turned out we had a specific meeting point with the Tiqets team Close to the metro station. we all entered the Collesium as a group but keep in mind that the crowds are just crazy so we still had to wait in lines to get in.
The positive side of it was that Roman Forum was included in the ticket and we went there as a group after the Collesium :)
Overall the experience was good I would just really suggest arriving at the spot an hour early to figure out what you are supposed to do and where to go
