“Our visit was awesome, and the tickets allowed us to see all that was promised, including skipping the lines. I highly recommend these tickets and the site”.

“It was smooth entering the sites and we did not have to wait in line. The site that took time was entering The Roman Forum from after visiting the Colosseum but was fast getting through security. Overall, amazing seamless experience. All was a smooth experience :)”.

Skip-the-line official ‘Gold’ tickets.


Colosseum, Forum & Palatine "Gold - Fast Track" + downloadable audioguide

This fixed-time skip-the-line ticket covers entrance to the Colosseum, the Forum and the Palatine Hill, and comes with tickitaly.com's English downloadable audioguide (plus accompanying map).

Fast-track tickets are full-price only and allow direct entrance - just scan your code at the turnstiles (e-ticket or print), and you're in. For the Roman Forum, you are able to visit (once) at any time during the 24 hours from your Colosseum visit, opening hours permitting. The Colosseum visit must be at the time specified - regulations are strict on this.

This 'Gold' ticket means that, at most times of year, you should not be affected by the quota-system (a limit on maximum number of visitors) now used at the Colosseum, and will be allowed in at the time you specified. If the Colosseum is exceptionally full, you may face small delays, but not the sort of delay you may face with the standard ticket.

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. If you opt to visit the Forum before the Colosseum, be sure to allow enough time to reach the Colosseum and pass through security checks.

Important: Security measures have been increased at the Colosseum and, even though this ticket is for entrance at a specific time, the authorities are currently telling all visitors to arrive approximately 30 minutes before entrance time. Please see this page for the most up to date information.

The audioguide comes in either mp3 or m4a formats and can be downloaded when you print your entrance vouchers. This is an optional but free download - you may choose to pay to rent a dedicated audio guide on the spot, should you prefer.

A little more information on types of tickets that you may find useful:

All of our Colosseum tickets are skip-the-line ones, and with this 'fast track' ticket you can go directly to the entrance turnstiles without needing to exchange the voucher for tickets - the voucher is your ticket; you will never need to join the often gargantuan queues for people who are trying to buy tickets on the day of their visit! Your confirmation vouchers will have full instructions and directions on where to go when in Rome.

'Gold' (fixed-time) tickets allow you to choose your visit time when placing an order, and that's when you'll be granted admission. If the Colosseum has reached its maximum capacity then you'll be told that you may have to wait for a small amount of time, but the staff will always give priority to 'Gold' entrance times.

This is the 'fast track' version of the Gold ticket. You can take it directly to the entrance turnstiles, scan it, and you're in. The one restriction is that it is for full-priced tickets only. If you need any reduced or complimentary tickets then please purchase the standard 'Gold' tickets, with which you'll be issued a voucher that'll be exchanged at the colosseum ticket desk for your actual entrance tickets. This is necessary because the colosseum staff require proof of qualification for any reduced or complimentary tickets.

The ticket, once collected, must be used on the same day and also includes admission to the Palatine Hill and museum and to the Roman Forum area.

Please pay careful attention to your voucher, which will explain how to use your fast-track tickets.

The opening hours are (roughly) as shown below. Please note that the ticket office will close one hour before the Colosseum itself closes.

    This was great, we couldn't find tickets and Tickitaly came to our rescue again! Walked right up and just had to wait on security. We spend right through! Thanks Tickitaly.

    I can't say enough about this site and how easy it was to order tickets for the Colosseum. When we got there I was amazed at how easy it was. Once we went through security we were able to get into the line straight into the Colosseum. Wonderful visit.

    Very impressed with the ease of getting into the Vatican with Tickitaly but the Vatican museums was far too crowded and we felt we were herded round like cattle.
