Consider the following options:

  • The Colosseum is one of Rome’s most popular attractions, so expect to queue unless you have a pre-arranged Colosseum tour. You may also be taken to areas that are not open to the general public on guided excursions. The optimum times to arrive are early in the morning and around noon when tour bus groups are leaving for lunch.
  • The Colosseum, the greatest remaining structure from ancient Rome, was built by Vespasian in AD 72 and later expanded by his son, Titus, who added the fourth floor eight years later. The Colosseum was named after a massive statue of Nero nearby, known as the colossus after the Colossus of Rhodes; the entire location was once part of Nero’s Domus Aurea, his palace complex in ancient Rome.
  • You can be sure to see all of the Colosseum’s attractions with our handy list of highlights and recommendations for visiting the Colosseum. The Colosseum’s outer wall was 186 metres long and 156 metres wide, with an oval shape that appears to be practically spherical. Multiple earthquakes have destroyed the exterior wall, which rises 57 metres tall and is composed of travertine marble held together with iron clamps rather than cement. The entire south side collapsed in the 1349 quake.
  • The Gladiator School of Rome, located on Apian Way near the Colosseum, is run by the Gruppo Storico Romano (Rome Historical Group), which specializes in the recreation of ancient Roman life and gladiator combat. On this Colosseum tour, while donning an authentic gladiator tunic and belt and using a common training sword, you will learn combat methods and receive insight into Roman gladiator culture and sports.

Prepare Your Visit

The Colosseum, as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, is a hive of activity. The busiest months of the year are April through September when the Colosseum sees the most visitors. To prepare for your Colosseum tour, the main thing to note is the peak days. Between November and February is the finest time to visit the Colosseum; not only will you encounter fewer crowds, but the chilly Italian winter will help you to appreciate your vacation to Rome much more.

Avoid visiting the Colosseum on weekdays during the early morning hours to avoid crowds.

Options for the Early Morning

Avoid the crowds by visiting the Colosseum early in the morning. With your priority access ticket, you can skip the wait and get inside faster. You’ll see Rome’s most important ancient sites before the crowds and heat reach their peak.

Options for the Evening

It is also feasible to see the Colosseum after it has closed for the day. However, if you want to visit the Colosseum at night, you must schedule a guided trip since you must be accompanied by a tour guide.
