THE COLOSSEUM

Explore the Colosseum and experience this magnificent structure at your own pace. It is the world’s biggest amphitheater, or round theater, and is about the height of a 12-story modern building. The arena could fit a whole football pitch!

SKIP THE LINE ACCESS

No need to wait in lines and lose hours of your vacation time! Simply skip the line and enjoy your visit to this monument.

A SITE FOR NAVAL BATTLES?

Yes, the so-called Naumachia, or mock naval battles, did take place in the Colosseum. The amphitheater would be flooded with water from the river Tiber. Craftsmen would build special ships designed to navigate the shallow water.

ANCIENT INNOVATIONS

The Roman genius for engineering was put to work in building the Colosseum. It had a shading system to protect spectators from the scorching sun. The underground tunnels housed animals and gladiators, who would then pop up on the arena floor using trap doors.

VISIT OTHER ROMAN ATTRACTIONS

Alongside exploring the Colosseum, your journey takes you further into ancient Rome. The Roman Forum and Palatine Hill are included in this entry ticket!

Beauty of Colosseum left me speechless

Visiting the Colosseum for the first time, I was amazed by its timeless beauty! The highlight was the arena floor, for sure. I could almost imagine myself being one of the gladiators, set to fight in front of the cheering crowds. A must-visit site when in Rome!

DESCRIPTION

Colosseum Entry Ticket

PRIORITY ACCESS TO THE COLOSSEUM

This Colosseum entry ticket allows you to skip the line and go exploring as soon as possible! Once you get in, you have an entire day to stroll along the center of the Eternal City.

A MONUMENT TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME

Nearly 2,000 years old and still standing, the Colosseum is proof of Roman engineering skill. A vast monument built from marble, stone, bricks, and mortar still binds it all.

GLADIATORIAL COMBAT

In the center of the Colosseum is the arena floor, the very place where gladiators fought one another to the death! But was it always so? Did all their fights end with one of them dying?

WHAT TO SEE BESIDES THE COLOSSEUM?

Besides the Colosseum, you will visit the Roman Forum, which was the beating heart of this vast empire. Also included in this ticket is access to the Palatine Hill, so why don't you climb it and take in a view worthy of an emperor? Additionally, you can go on a city walking tour with an English-speaking guide and see other important sites in Rome.

The Colosseum after the fall of Rome

As the Western Roman Empire began to crumble, the Colosseum itself slowly deteriorated. Although it was still in use, it underwent radical changes. The arena area became a cemetery, and a small chapel was built there in the 6th century. The area beneath the arcades was converted into workshops and housing. The building itself served as a quarry, with marble and stone used as building materials during the Middle Ages. By the 13th century, a part of the Colosseum had even become a fortified castle!

It was not until the late 18th century that the Popes started to pay attention to the site, thus ending the devastation. Today, it remains one of the most iconic buildings of the ancient era and attracts millions of tourists.
