Highlights

  • Exchange 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

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 mobile 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.

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.

Tickets purchased from Tiqets were fantastic, priced the same as buying direct from the venue box office and we went straight past the absolutely massive line and straight into the Colosseum. Would definitely use this site next time I want attraction tickets. Faultless!

The printed ticket vouchers needed to be exchanged for actual tickets for which the queues were very long due to the easter weekend. But the venue was totally worth the effort.
