      • The Colosseum: Visit one of the most famous sights in all of Rome. Look down at the Colosseum's visible underground from street level and see the Ludus Magnus, where gladiators trained and prepared to enter the Colosseum.
      • Via dei Fori Imperiali: Stroll down the famed Imperial Fora and see all the open plazas, temples, and buildings built by Rome's emperors over the years. Hear the story of Romulus and Remus, and learn about the daily life of ancient Romans.
      • Interactive tour: Using hands-on techniques to conduct the tour's activities and discussions, our expert guide will connect with your children to create an environment where learning is fun and memorable.
      • Long lines? No problem: Every day, around 10,000 people visit the Colosseum. But you don't have to worry. With skip-the-line tickets you can bypass the crowds and go in.
      • Small group is more personal: Share your experience with only the people you know; enjoy the luxury of deeper interaction with your guide and a more flexible itinerary.

      Meeting point

      Please meet your guide in front of Oppio Caffe, located at via delle Terme Tito 72 (corner of via Nicola Salvi). The cafe is just above the Colosseo Metro stop (line B) and is directly next to another bar named Bar Biga. Please refer to your confirmation voucher for more info about the meeting location.

      Helpful hints

      You'll be asked to pay for your Skip the Line Colosseum tickets during checkout, one per person, so we can guarantee your admission. At Trojan's Market, you'll be asked to pay 11.00 euro directly.

      Your reservation allows you to avoid the long line for the non-reserved public entrance to the Colosseum. Although we're skipping that line, please keep in mind that there is also a line for the reserved entrance. This line can be long but usually moves quickly. Any delay can be unpredictable--10 minutes one day, 30 minutes the next--regardless of what is written on the voucher. The Colosseum receives an average influx of 7,000 visitors daily. Patience is helpful.

      Since fall 2013, the Colosseum has been undergoing renovations to its exterior and interior. This project that will clean the site, rebuild the exterior arches and reportedly open 25 percent more of the Colosseum's tunnels and cages to visitors. Throughout this period, some areas might become closed off to the public without any notice. This is likely to cause unexpected disruptions in addition to the overcrowding of the site. Unfortunately these circumstances are beyond our control but rest assured that we are doing our best to mitigate the effects of necessary conservation work to the world's most ancient stadium.
