tickitaly.com - sightseeing, not queueing.

This 'standard' ticket covers entrance to the Colosseum, The Forum and the Palatine Hill, and comes with tickitaly.com's English downloadable audioguide (plus accompanying map).

As of June 2018 regulation changes mean that the Colosseum visit with this ticket is only allowed from 2.00 PM onwards.

Your voucher will be exchanged for tickets at the dedicated pickup desk and your visit time will be allocated by staff on the spot and may, at busy times of year, require you to wait until visitor numbers have declined. Consequently, if visiting between Easter and Summer, we always recommend opting for the 'Gold' option for a few Euros more; this gives you the option to select a time of day for your visit when ordering.

This is a skip-the-line ticket in that you'll not need to join the long queues for those that have not pre-booked, though you - and all other visitors - will still need to pass through a security queue.

    Cultural sites: the use of a face mask is recommended during visits to cultural sites.

  • Visitors must maintain a social distance of 1.8m at all times.

Access to the Colosseum will be exclusively from the "Sperone Valadier" and can be used by individuals or groups of up to 14 people, adequately spaced, who will enter every 15 minutes and will always be accompanied along the entire route. The group limit includes all visitors including adults, children and guides.

For security reasons it will not be possible to admit more than 600 people per day and all visitors will be checked on entry.

To facilitate the security checks, please insert any object (including mobile phones) in the backpack or in the special tray to be inserted into the x-ray machine.

You will not be allowed to enter with bottles, glass containers, alcoholic drinks and spray cans, camping backpacks, bulky bags, suitcases or trolleys. While medium and small shoulder backpacks are permitted they will, like any other bag, be passed through the metal detector.

Visitors must arrive 15 minutes before their access time, wearing a mask. With confirmation you will receive a link to download an App for your mobile device - this App is essential for your visit to the Colosseum.

If your tour includes an audioguide device provided by the Colosseum, you must bring your own earphones.

Available routes will be available through the Colosseum, but these may vary on the day for security reasons and depending on availability.

These conditions may be changed without notice as Italian regulations are updated.
If you are denied entrance because of failure to meet entry conditions, no refunds will be available.
