*PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRINT YOUR VOUCHER - it will contain detailed instructions on how and where to pick up your tickets - please read them carefully.

Heightened security coupled with the recent decision to impose a ceiling on the number of visitors allowed to enter the Colosseum at a given time mean delays, even with a 'no queues' ticket, that you will face delays.

It is now also compulsory to pass through a metal detector - these extra security delays are currently causing considerable queues that are, unfortunately, affecting ALL ticket holders and you are currently required to arrive 90 minues ahead of your visit time - please see this page for latest updates.

You may exchange your voucher at any time of day but remember that the ticket office will close one hour before the Colosseum itself closes. Your ticket, once collected, is only valid for the Colosseum at the time confirmed by the staff on the spot, and for the Forum and Palatine at any time on the day of your booking or the day after.

The Colosseum is open every day of the year, excluding Christmas Day and New Year's Day, and opens at 08.30 AM. Closing times are as follows:

HOW YOU'LL GET YOUR TICKETS:

To reserve tickets for visiting the Colosseum, just fill out the booking form, supply us with credit card details, and we'll do the rest. There will be no charge whatsoever until we confirm your reservation. We'll then point you to our secure page, where you can print out your entry voucher. Print it out, take it with you to the Colosseum and present it at the ticket desk ... they will swap it for your entry ticket. As simple as that!

You won't have to join any queues (there is a special pick-up desk for internet tickets, (see our blog post, with photographs, here), but please note that the ticket office closes one hour before the Colosseum itself closes, so be there ahead of time if you are visiting late in the day.

We also allow you to purchase the Rome Archaeological Pass which allows entrance not only to the Colosseum, but also 8 other notable sites and museums in Rome. The passes are valid for seven days - click here for details.

Please be prepared to show some ID - It is sometimes difficult for Italian officials to understand that not all countries require their citizens to carry ID cards, if indeed they are issued in said countries at all. You will often find that nothing other than a Passport or Driving Licence (with photograph) will suffice. If you are looking for accommodation why not take a look at a listing of Rome hotels.
