Colosseum Tickets

My Rating:


I tried out two different online ticket types from one seller – a standard ticket and a ticket combined with a guided tour. And I’m pleased to say that I didn’t have to wait very long at all on either occasion. It couldn’t have been any more straightforward.

Finding your way around
Orientation on site


  • Remember that your Colosseum ticket also grants you entry to the Roman Forum.
  • At both attractions, you’ll need to join a short queue even if you’ve bought an online ticket. There’s just no way around those security checks! Make sure you don’t have a penknife or any other potentially questionable items with you.
  • Take a bottle of water with you. You’ll be able to refill it at one of many drinking water taps in the Colosseum (I didn’t spot any at the Roman Forum).
  • Keep your belongings close to you in the area surrounding the Colosseum. It’s a crowded place and you can easily get distracted by the Colosseum. Before you know it, a pickpocket will have taken your mobile phone or wallet. I’d recommend wearing your backpack or handbag on your front. And don’t keep your wallet or mobile phone in the back pocket of your trousers.
