Highlights
  • Swap your digital voucher at the Colosseum Ticket Office for a handy audio guide and a timed entrance ticket to the Colosseum, that 2,000-year-old icon of Ancient Rome
  • Explore the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill later that day or the next one; this ticket is valid for two days
  • Imagine the world of gladiators, slaves, senators, emperors, and soldiers as you see the places where they carried out their daily lives
Description

Pick up your printed ticket (with timed entrance) just 50 meters from the Colosseum. Then get into the famous gladiator battlefield via the Fast Track Entrance. Take your time exploring the Colosseum, one of Ancient Rome's most treasured archaeological sites. Then see the Roman Forum (the social and political center of one of the greatest empires the world has ever known) and the Palatine Hill (where Romulus founded the Eternal City). One ticket, three great Roman sites.

This three-in-one ticket is the best way to get into the spirit of the mighty Roman Empire. Swap your digital voucher for an audio guide and a printed ticket complete with timeslot at the official Colosseum Ticket Office. Then put on your toga (if you remembered to bring it), and take the Fast Track Entrance into the Colosseum. After marveling at the ancient grounds where man and beast once fought to the death, you can visit two more iconic sites: the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill.

Colosseum

Emperor Vespasian began construction of this huge marble and limestone structure in 72 AD. It was his way of giving something back to the populace after the ultra-corrupt reign of Nero. Bask in the atmosphere of this amphitheater where Romans would come to be entertained by games, hunts, and fights. The Colosseum wasn't only a showcase for bloodsport. It was also a demonstration of cutting-edge Roman engineering techniques. It had a complex system of pulleys, ramps, and trapdoors to raise animals, gladiators, and scenery into the arena.

Roman Forum

In ancient times when Rome was Caput Mundi (Capital of the World), this very valley was the beating heart of the metropolis. Expanded by later emperors, this valley was always the social, commercial and religious hub. Highlights include the Temple of the Vestal Virgins, the Temple of Julius Caesar, and the Senate House.

Palatine

According to legend, the Palatine Hill is where Romulus chose to found Rome. Since that time, the Roman republican aristocracy chose to make it their neighborhood, and later it was the site of the imperial palace. Highlights here include the House of Augustus, the Domus Flavia, and the spectacular views it offers of the Colosseum and the forum (no wonder the wealthy chose to live here!).

One ticket to see all three of these key sites; that's a lot of modern wins for a day among ancient ruins.

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.

The ticket is valid for two days, but only for one entrance to each site; the audio guide is only for the Colosseum, not the Roman Forum nor the Palatine Hill. Since there is no time slot for the Colosseum on the voucher, you will get the time slot when you get the ticket so just expect that extra delay. All that said, the places are beautiful and totally worth it! P. S. Put on sunscreen. Enjoy!

Great value for money and easy to pick up the tickets. There are lots of other tickets around that offer the same but for more money.
The guide at the colesseum was good but I would reccomend bringing your own headphones.
It was great that you could do the activities on two different days as our time for the colesseum happened to be 4pm. We spent the whole afternoon walking round the Forum so I reccomend leaving a lot of time for it.

It's good to buy the ticket online, however note that you still have to stand in quite a long queue to get the physical tickets. It was on a Thursday, 38 degrees and about half an hour. Then you can choose a designated time which is 3-4 hours later to visit the Colosseum. So in between you can visit the Forum and the Palatine Hill. Then you still have to queue a bit, but that's just 10 minutes. The Colosseum is fantastic worthwhile to see.

Wonder experience. Easy directions to follow. I do suggest going early though as you still have to wait in multiple lines to get through.

Although i booked the tickets online in order to save some time, i still had to wait in a line for 2 hours in the sun to collect the tickets and be allocated a visiting time for colosseum.

It was a nice visit. Make sure you print your voucher and collect your tickets in a booth outside colloseum. There will be tourist guides outside the colloseum so dont worry if u dont know the way.
Make sure you bring an umbrella, hat fan and water as the queue is unbelievably long. You can be queueing up to 40 minutes or longer...Depends on how close you are to then entrance..better check the weather if you plan on visiting.
But to sum it all.
The place was magnificent.

This was an excellent experience. So high quality of singing, acting and the live music was awesome. Only remark is...since the event was in a church all levels were same and we could not see some moments clearly. This is minor as compared with the quality of the show. Thanks
