Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

This is a must see. The colosseum was spectacular. I could almost hear the lions roaring and the cheers from the spectators. It is a cool piece of history.

Naturally going to see the Colosseum was number one on our list to see when coming to Rome. It's a fantastic testament to Ancient Rome and it's magnificent. If you hate people or large groups of people then take a seat on the outside and...More

Be sure to visit such a historical place on your visit to Rome. I booked a private tour (guide plus wife and i) and we skipped the lines. It was crowded even at 8am. Plan to spend 2 hours total, or more if you like....More

Arrived at the Colosseum from the Metro and upon exiting the station you will just be in awe of the enormous structure. It was a picture moment; just amazing.

A fabulous relic that is well worth visiting. We had a small group guided tour that included the other ancient Rome ruins. Spend the extra money to get a full history.

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
