Great tour of Colosseum and guide was fantastic. The ticket also allowed entry to the Forum and Palantine Hill which was amazing and I would recommend to anyone.

The Colosseum ticket was perfect for us. It provided a breif tour/explanation and allowed us to skip the very long line.

Well worth the money to be able to avoid the long lines waiting at the Colosseum to get inside for a non-reserved tour.

Excellent guide and helpful explanation. Arrived far too early. Website advised 60 minutes early but security staff turned us away and told us to return 10 minutes before allotted time. We did travel in November when it was quieter.

I did not like that I was not able to use the ticket on my phone. I missed my tour because I was trying to email my ticket to the office so that it could be printed out, even though I had the bar code on my phone. In addition, the woman at the desk who I was working with was not as polite as I would have hoped. However, the tour itself was great and very informative! I loved the use of headsets, I just wish the tour would have lasted a little longer!

The guided tour in the colloseum was short and hard to follow because of the somewhat bad English of the guide.

She gave little information. She was hard to follow and uninspiring. I've been on much better tours. We did skip the lines which was good

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

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

  • In compliance with the Ministerial Order of April 28th 2022 on new measures concerning personal respiratory protection equipment, from the 1st of May until  the 15th of June 2022:
    Cultural sites: the use of a face mask is recommended during visits to cultural sites.
    Performances: FFP2 type equipment must be worn in the case of performances open to the public and taking place indoors in theatres, museums and concert halls, cinemas, entertainment and live music venues and other similar premises.
  • 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.
