ABOUT VISITING THE COLOSSEUM
Can I enter the inside of the Colosseum?
You will need to purchase a ticket. Something many visitors are not aware of is that the Standard ticket only covers access to the standing tiers of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. You will need to purchase special tickets to gain more access to other parts of the Colosseum.
Is entry free?
Yes, it is available for free entry on the 1st Sunday of every month. Disabled visitors have free entry along with their EU guide.
What Is your recommendation of seeing the Colosseum the best way?
We strongly suggest that you book in advance as lines to enter the Colosseum can be very long, and in summer, it can get very hot and humid. As there is much to discover at the Colosseum, a Rome Colosseum Guided Tour would be the best option.
Is entry to the Roman Forum free?
The Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and the Colosseum now all form part of the standard ticket. The Roman Forum is part of your guided tour if you have selected a guided tour option.
How much time do I need to explore the Colosseum, and can I tour it on my own?
Without a guide – 1hour aproximatively.
With a guide – 1.5-3 hours depending on the tour you select.
Yes, you are allowed to freely roam the Colosseum and soak in the beauty of the ancient ruins.
What are the best Colosseum visiting times?
To avoid the crowds and long waiting lines, it is suggested to enter the Colosseum as soon as it opens at 08.30 or an hour before the last entry. If possible, plan your trip mid-week to avoid the weekend crowds. November to February is considered low season, so it may be a good idea to plan your trip at the Colosseum at that time.
Am I allowed to bring a filled bottle of water into the Colosseum?
Only empty bottles are allowed in the Colosseum. There are many fountains located in the complex, and so you can fill your bottles once you have entered.
