There are long queues at the Colosseum ticket office at any time. But there are other locations where you can also buy tickets for the Colosseum. You can try one of the nearby ticket offices like Via di San Gregorio (Palatine), Largo Salara Vecchia, former Largo Romolo e Remo (Roman Forum), and Via Sacra (Roman Forum, Arco di Tito). Without buying your ticket in advance, you will wait up to 1 hour to get into the Colosseum.
