We had a great tour with Larissa. It was very informative and fun !!!! Highlight of our Rome visit !!!! Larissa and the tour office went above and beyond to get us into the Collosseum Dungeons which had been closed due to rain on that day. Would definitely book with this tour group again.

Not sure if we had access to the very top of the Colosseum, as my other other travelling companions did. But if we did, it was disappointing that we werent made aware. But all in all very interesting and breathtaking tour

This was an amazing tour and our guide was wonderful. Our guide was so knowledgeable and used a great technique to show us what the area would have looked like at the height of the Roman Empire. She answered every question we had and was so kind. Her English was perfect and this tour was truly the highlight of our trip.

Very interesting and nice to be able to go into the off limits areas to the general admission crowd. The views from below and above the arena floor were inspiring.

Our guide was excellent! We really appreciated the photo overlays that gave us a better idea of what Ancient Rome really looked like. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone visiting the Roman Forum and Colosseum - the guide really helped us understand what we were looking at. Fabulous tour!

Fantastic tour. Maria G was a wealth of knowledge and gave an excellent tour to our group of 6. Very friendly and we all left with a much better understanding of the history of Rome....this tour is the only way one should see the Colosseum and Forum. Well worth the money.

Both tour guides were great. Getting through the lines went smoothly. The transition from the Forum to the Colosseum and coordinating the transition from one tour guise to another went very well.

The tour did not disappoint and we went in with high expectation. Outstanding guide. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and interacted with her group well both as a whole and on a more individual level.

The tour and tour guide was awesome! Fantastic experience for my and my two teenagers. It was a June, so the walk through the Roman Forum was a bit hot but still neat to see. Some feedback: The walkie talkies in the Colosseum would have been much more useful with earphones.

Our guide was great! Skipping the line was so worth it and being able to go in the dungeon and to the upper level made our visit amazing!

WE really enjoyed this tour. We learned a lot about the forum and colosseum and loved the dungeons as well. You could also tell how much the tour guide enjoyed telling us the information about the sites.

Where do these reviews come from?
About two weeks after you have used your tickets we send an email asking you for your feedback on tickitaly.com and on the individual attractions that you visited. We ask our customers to give us and our tickets a rating out of five stars and to write a short review - all of these reviews come from people that have bought tickets from us.
Why are there more stars awarded than reviews?
Many of our customers opt to award stars rather than write a review.
Why do some reviews have a ? instead of stars?
Some reviewers opt to write a comment but don't enter a star entry. These are sometimes positive and sometimes negative - we include these reviews in the listings after the starred reviews, but we don't include them in the overall ratings.
Where is my review? I can't see anything in the list?
Each review is checked by our staff in order to avoid posting inappropriate content or personal details, and to see if the customer has had a specific problem that needs to be addressed. In most cases these reviews go online with their star rating and any comment that has been made. In the cases that there is an issue that we have to address, such as refunds or specific complaints, we flag the review for response. In those few cases, any star rating is immediately taken into account in our ratings but the actual review is only posted once we have resolved the issue or had an opportunity to respond. Any editorial comment will be clearly highlighted like this: [Tickitaly responds: .....].
Are these reviews real or have you faked them?
All of the reviews and star ratings have come from people that have purchased tickets from us. We are very proud of the service and products that we provide, but obviously we aren't perfect and sometimes things go wrong. Once we have addressed any problems that a customer has had, we will process the original review (although we reserve the right to fix minor typos like ticketitaly).
If a review contains offensive language, abuse or personal insults, we'll publish the stars but omit the text.

Coronavirus in Italy


Please note that in order to use your tickets you MUST be able to provide one of the following:

  • - Covid19 Green Pass certification (in digital or paper format) able to attest - together with a valid identity document - that they have received at least one dose of one of the vaccines authorized by the EMA or AIFA (Comirnaty by Pfizer-BioNtech, Vaxzevria by Astrazeneca, Janssen by Johnson & Johnson and Moderna)
  • Exemptions: COVID-19 Green Certification is not required for children excluded by age from the vaccination campaign (under 12 years of age) and those exempt on the basis of appropriate medical certification.
  • - Visitors from Israel, Canada, Japan and the United States - Vaccination certificates issued by the health authorities of these countries (complying with EU Recommendation no. 2021/912 of 20 May 2021) will also be accepted, but must include the identifying data of the person and data regarding the type of vaccine and date(s) of administration. Please note that certificates will be accepted if they are in Italian, English, French or Spanish. If the certificate is not issued in bilingual form and not in one of the four languages indicated in the Order of the Minister of Health of 18 June 2021, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation.

This documentation must be presented at the entrance when the body temperature is checked.

Security queues to check the Green Pass requirements may be a bit long so do allow plenty of time to ensure you do not miss your entrance slot. Have your Green Pass and ID ready for viewing. Whilst they may seem long, queues do move fast so please be patient. Thank you for your cooperation.

PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have a Green Pass and a valid identity document, you will not be able to access and your ticket will not be refunded. For further information www.dgc.gov.it

Due to Coronavirus many venues and events are applying strict entry conditions. These will vary by venue but common examples are:

  • You must wear a compliant CE mask (Ordinanza RT n.48) which covers both mouth and nose.
  • Disposable single-use gloves must be worn at all times.
  • Hands (or gloves) must be cleaned with a disinfectant gel on entry.
  • Your temperature (which will be measured on entry) must not be above 37.5°C.
  • Visitors must maintain a social distance of 1.8m at all times.
  • There may be a maximum visitor limit in place - in some cases this may lead to delays

Any 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.
