  • This sarcophagus was totally unknown to me, despite having been there several times (it is close to the colosseum). Thanks to the find things to see in the surroundings I went to browse. Definitely interesting for the beautiful bas-reliefs present.

  • La Fontana del Colosseo is part of the Coliseum in the Romans, nicely decorated, interesting is that it is part of the most famous monuments in Rome

  • The Roman symbol is a fountain in the Colosseum. It is not the one like springing out from the under of the present age even if it is said the fountain, and it is the one like the tap water without the faucet. There is a water pipe in the mouth of the lion, and a line of water flows down.

  • "I wanted to be there 2100 years ago" I just closed my eyes and my imagination flew 2100 years to the past, generally speaking. Our tour guide narrated almost everything we did not about about this historic monument. I remember asking him why were there some different color shades on the external walls and he told us, the clear ones were marble stones, those were the original stones. The Colosseum has been rebuilt through history, in fact some how it has been shortened. When we walked inside I was confused to see some sort of labyrinth, it did not make any sense to me at all. How was it possible for the gladiators to fight on a labyrinth, so I asked right away. Turns out, there used to be a floor on top of that labyrinth, this floor was covered with sand, and every time there was a fight and the sand got covered with the blood of the gladiators, it was easily removed and new one was placed. The floor rotted thought the years exposing the labyrinth. We saw the area were the emperor used to sit and a cross reminding all the Christians. This structure is simply beautiful and can be enjoyed better if a tour is bought with enough time because it is visited by thousands of tourists a day. If you are lucky, you might get a private tour to the underground which might be out of this world. Perhaps one of the areas I wanted to see the most was the road where the races used to take place. I remember those movies like Spartacus...I closed my eyes and could imagine the carriages racing while people were creaming a cheering for them.
  • Oh, the Colosseum... what a masterpiece. If you appreciate old-world history, you will be amazed by this location. It’s impossible not to be charmed by the beauty of it. Although you can visit this monument from the outside and that may be fine, I recommend to also tour the inside. General admission costs 12€ and grants access to the Colosseum and the Roman City. If you buy the upgraded tickets for 22€ you can also visit the basement and the 3rd level of the Colosseum but you must be accompanied by a professional tour guide. I feel like this decision is geared by money which is a little disappointing. I tried purchasing one of these tickets but unfortunately there was none left for the day I was there. I feel like I missed out on the opportunity to fully embrace the experience of the Colosseum. By the way... you can order tickets in advance online for a 4€ fee. It may be worth it as lines can be pretty long and there’s no shade so you may burn up! Beware the tickets bought online are for specific times and you may be refused access if you’re late.
  • Magnificent. Absolutely worth going to. Best advice is to spend the extra to get on a tour and miss the queues. You learn so much from the guides and they are passionate about what they do. Your footsteps will take you back to ancient times with a little imagination thrown in.
  • I thought the Colosseum was way more spectacular from the outside. The inside is about understanding the history of it which is why a tour guide is recommended. I made a mistake of going to the Colosseum on my last day and in the afternoon. All the tours were full but I managed to call 'Show me Italy' who were recommended by my friends. They did indeed manage to get me on an English tour at 4.30pm. However as it was late, you pay €35 which skips the cues which was amazing, then its guided which was enjoyable to find out the history but you could just read the boards yourself, I'm not much of a guided tour person myself as I like to go at my own pace. The tour ended on the ground floor and then you are left to go look around the upper floor on your own. I liked this but your ticket should have included the Roman Forum and Palentine Hill but as we were late we didn't get a ticket, and I wouldn't have made it anyway as the last entrance is at 5.30pm for both but was devastated as I would have preferred them a lot more. My advice is go early, which I was told to but got distracted by so many other sites on route. You'll need at least 4hrs to do all three areas but definitely should be done. If you can handle a cue, then opt for the normal ticket at the Colosseum ticket office. Otherwise take a guided tour to skip the lines and have someone guide you for a higher price.
