Best time to visit
Early morning
  • Swap your digital voucher at the Colosseum Ticket Office for 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

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 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.


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.


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 temperature was 33 degrees and the queues were huge with no relief from the heat. These tickets got us in pretty quickly although I would advise using the entrance into the Palatine Hill rather than the Forum one as it was quicker to get into the site.
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.

We got to the colosseum fairly early - 10:00 am - and were able to get in quickly by having the prepaid tickets as there was a special line for this. It made it much easier. However, there wasn't a similar set up for the Forum and Palatine Hill. We had to wait in the regular line (the only options were group or non-group).

A must see.

This ticket was very useful as it provided entry into the three locations we wanted to see in that area of the city. We got to the Colosseum early, around 9.30am, and therefore the line wasn't too long to pick up the tickets. Be aware that there are construction works around the outside of the colosseum at the moment, so depending on the side you come from it can be a bit tricky to find the desk for picking up the tickets. Was a great visit and highly recommended.

It was very well organised and saved us time and money whilst visiting Rome.
