Then it's time for the Colosseum! It's a complete package of Ancient Rome life.
This digital ticket gets you access to: the Roman Forum (the social and political center of one of the greatest empires the world has ever known); the Palatine Hill (the hill where Romulus founded the city that would become the center of the ancient world); and The Colosseum (the symbol of Ancient Rome). This is the complete experience of the ancient city.
Start your experience by going to the Tourist Info Point and swapping your smartphone voucher for a printed ticket. Then step across the street and prepare to enter the Roman Forum (if you packed a toga, now is the time to put it on).
Stop briefly at the Roman Forum Ticket Office and book a timeslot to the Colosseum. NOTE: This is a perk of our all-in-one ticket and will save you time at the entrance to the Colosseum later on (time slots are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis). Use the time before your booking to visit the Roman Forum and Palatine.
Roman Forum In ancient times when Rome was Caput Mundi (Capital of the World), this very valley was the beating heart of this capital of an empire. Expanded by later emperors, this valley was always the social, political and commercial and religious hub. Highlights include the Temple of the Vestal Virgins (a very important cult in the city, who kept the home fires burning), 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 Casa di Augusto (House of Augustus), the Domus Flavia (Flavian Palace), the Baths of Septimius Severus, and the spectacular views it offers of the Colosseum and the forum (no wonder the well-to-do chose to live here!). Whether you come here before or after the Colosseum you'll get a great overview, and also get to enjoy the greenery here among the ruins.
Colosseum This huge marble and limestone structure was built by Emperor Vespasian as a way of giving back to the populace after the reign of Nero. It was designed to let more than 50,000 spectators revel in the various forms of (mostly violent) entertainment popular at the time, such as hunts, gladiator battles, and executions. But the Colosseum was not only a showcase for bloodsport, it was also a demonstration of cutting-edge Roman engineering techniques. And its design and construction are impressive even to this day; it features 80 entrances, and beneath the floor was a complicated system of slave-operated hoists, ramps and trapdoors, allowing for beasts, men, and scenery to be raised into the arena.

It was nice
Enjoyed the three attractions immensely though the reserving tickets from Tourist Information then queuing with the print out was annoying.
So handy to have skip the line tickets. The three locations were breathtaking!
The site was amazing however it was very difficult to find the information office to print our tickets. It would be better if you could just show the ticket on your phone. I felt like that was an unecessary step.
Not to wait in long line was great.
Beautiful place to visit.
Be sure to print out your voucher, electronic voucher can not be exchange for a ticket! Then you need to look for a company, which will do this job for extra money.
Anyway, great impression is worth extra efforts.
Very good experience we had a guide that showed us around the Vatican sistene chapel and it was fantatic
Great day out, very interesting!
It is a great.
