Assorted tickets & tours, May 2015

Easy. I was so grateful we bought tickets ahead of time and avoided all the lines (in the hot sun).

We walked right in to all venues (some of which, like the Borghese Gallery, were sold out for days) with no problem.

Thank you!

English tour: 09.45 AM, 10.15 AM, 10.45 AM, 11.15 AM, 11.45 AM, 12.30 PM, 01.45 PM, 03.00 PM, 03.30 PM, 04.15 PM, 05.15 PM.

Select your ideal visit date on the calendar and then click the green button that will appear below; further down the page we'll also show you additional ticket or tour options that may be of interest.

For example, you may want to take part in one of our unique tours of the Colosseum, dungeons and Roman Forum (see Trip Advisor reviews), or experience an even more atmospheric Colosseum by visiting once the sun has gone down - Colosseum and dungeons after dark!

To reserve tickets for visiting the Colosseum, just fill out the booking form, give us a preference for date and time (dates are in European DD/MM/YYYY format), 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!

PLEASE REMEMBER TO PRINT YOUR VOUCHER (unless otherwise specified on the voucher)

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 nonetheless we'd advise you to arrive 30 minutes before your entry time (60 minutes at weekends).

PLEASE NOTE: You must present yourself at the time specified on your booking voucher - admittance will not be granted at other times.

Please also 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.

POSSIBLE DELAYS DUE TO SECURITY MEASURES: 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 that it is possible, even with a 'no queues' ticket, that you will face delays.

It is now also compulsory to pass through a metal detector - local authorities are aware of the queues these extra measures are causing and are working to speed things up as soon as possible.
