How To Buy Tickets For The Colosseum In Rome

Tickets to the Colosseum also include admission to the nearby Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. These tickets include a specific time slot for your visit to the Colosseum due to its visitor capacity. Be sure to arrive at the Colosseum before your allocated time, as they do check the time of your ticket on entry.

For tickets purchased online, there are two options for obtaining your tickets when you get to the checkout stage of the process. The best and safest option is to print your tickets with their barcode shown at home, because you can then head straight to the security line.

With all this information, you should now be fully prepared for visiting the Colosseum. Hopefully, you now understand why which Colosseum tickets you get could have a major impact on your experience and enjoyment of this impressive place.

It used to be that you could go to the Colosseum ticket booths and buy tickets for a same-day visit. I also used to recommend to go the Palatine Hill or Roman Forum to avoid the ling lines at the Colosseum.

If you arrive at any of these sites/parks without a ticket, you will be told to go online to book one, using your smartphone or tablet. You should be able to get tickets for the same day, especially if you are just booking standard entry, but you may not be able to go until a later time slot, so it's really best to book in advance if you can.

If your payment was successful, and you've checked your junk folder and your tickets are not there, then take your payment confirmation email with you to the Colosseum ticket office and explain what happened, and they should help you.

You can no longer pay extra to include the S.U.P.E.R sites with the standard Colosseum tickets, and you still only get 1 entrance to the Roman Forum/Palatine Hill area, so you will need to plan enough time to see everything you want in one go.

Everyone will have to pick up their tickets, so even if you have the Roma Pass, a membership card or would be entitled to free entry anyway, you will need to queue and go to the ticket office.

However, figuring out how to to buy tickets for the Colosseum can be overwhelming: searching the web, it is not immediately clear what sites are reliable for ticketing and the ticket options are so varied and confusing, decision paralysis is almost inevitable.

2) Colosseum tickets get released 30 days ahead of your desired day and they offer several types of ticket covering different Colosseum areas. This schedule applies to tour operators too but see below how they can accept bookings done with more notice.

Since they are the source of all tickets, they are the most affordable way to secure entrance tickets and also the cheapest: there is no middle man, no third party, no affiliates, the sale is direct between them and you.

For ticketing reasons, Coopculture has divided the Colosseum n different areas, for which you need different tickets. This means that it takes a bit of patience to figure out which one is best for you.

I use GetYourGuide often and find them reliable and easy to use. Like with all ticket providers for the Colosseum, they are not able to offer refundable tickets yet they are valid alternate, should they have availability when others do not.

I have used tickets often and while they are a little more expensive than buying direct, since they are an intermediary, they are reliable and a good solution should they have availability left when direct tickets are sold out.

You cannot buy tickets on the spot and on location: the people offering tickets to you outside of the colosseum are not authorised resellers and one of the reasons why getting tickets has become so hard.

Below you can see the prices for all colosseum tickets. By buying your colosseum tickets online you will incur a slight mark up on the price that corresponds to the booking fee, in exchange for the advantages listed above: skipping the line, being able to choose the date and time slot of your visit, not being left without tickets because there are too many visitors on a given day, etc.

Beginning in March 2017, visitors can book a guided night time tour of the colosseum. The arena takes on an entirely new quality at night. It feels even more ancient and impressive. Check out our guided tours page (link) for more info on visiting the colosseum by night.

Instead of booking individual tickets to every monument and museum in the Eternal City and having to handle dozens of emails, receipts, and papers, you can make your life much easier with the all-in-one Roma City Pass.

Buying Colosseum tickets in advance online is the best way to visit, saving you hours of lining up. When you buy a ticket before your visit, you will be able to breeze past the very long line for the Colosseum ticket office, and will only have a short wait at the door while you go through security.

Just turn up at the Colosseum ticket office and see if they have any tickets! This will likely require waiting in line for a long time and you may end up disappointed, but if all other options are exhausted, this may be your only option

Built sometime before 80 AD under the direction of Emperor Vespasian, the Colosseum was designed to be used as an amphitheater for sporting events and entertainment. Today, nearly 2,000 years later, the Colosseum is one of the most-visited monuments in the world. With your Colosseum tickets, you can tour the length and breadth of this historic landmark as well as the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.

The Colosseum has multiple special access zones like the Arena, Underground, and the Belvedere. These are not accessible by the public with standard-issue tickets. You need to purchase a guided tour that specifically provides access to these areas.

Standard skip-the-line Colosseum tickets do not provide access to zones like the Arena. You can, however, buy Colosseum guided tour tickets; only with a tour guide are you allowed access to the Arena.

You can only access the Belvedere -- 3rd, 4th and 5th floors -- by opting for a guided tour of the Colosseum. Only tickets that specifically mention access to the Belvedere will grant you entry to the top floors.

Yes. If you opt for a Colosseum guided tour, you get skip-the-line access as well. You will not have to wait in long lines at the ticket counter since your tour guide will arrange for your tickets beforehand.

Not all Colosseum tickets provide access to special zones like the Underground or Arena. You will have to purchase tickets that specifically provide access to the Colosseum Arena, Underground, and 3rd, 4th and 5th floors.

A. Yes. EU citizens between the age of 18-25 get reduced pricing on their tickets on presentation of a valid ID. EU and non-EU citizens under the age of 18, along with permanent or contract-based teaching staff enjoy free entry into the Colosseum.

A. It depends on the Colosseum ticket you choose to book. While some tickets offer a full refund on canceling tickets up to 48-72 hours in advance, for others there may be no refund available on cancelation. Please check before you make your reservation.

Finally, it is worth noting that whilst not part of the Colosseum, all tickets to the Colosseum include same-day access to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill, which is right next to the Colosseum. This is where the business of Rome happened, and should also be part of your visit.

The Colosseum is free on the first Sunday of the month. On these days, entry is on a first come first served basis with free tickets available at the ticket office in Piazza del Colosseo, located near the Temple of Venus and Rome.

Note that at busier times of year tickets sell out far in advance, so we advise booking your time as soon as you know when you will be visiting. Tickets are released on a schedule throughout the year, which varies depending on the ticket type.

There are many third-party websites that will sell you tickets for the Colosseum, however if all you want is the regular individual access without a guide or other access, then the official website is definitely where you should start.

Unfortunately, tickets on the official website do tend to sell out pretty quickly. So if you have a date in mind, I recommend marking a date in your calendar a month in advance to check the official site. Sometimes last minute tickets are available, but this is not guaranteed. If you are struggling to find tickets, see the section of the post on how to get tickets when they are sold out on the official site.

Another thing to note is that tickets bought from the official website cannot be refunded, nor can you change the date and time. Some third party sites do allow for refunds and changes, so if this is important to you do check the terms when purchasing.

Our next choice for Colosseum tickets would be either these options on the tiqets website or these options on GetYourGuide. We use both these sites for tickets in cities across Europe and it is worth checking them both as prices and availability can vary.

As well as offering fast-track entry tickets for children, Tiqets also sell Colosseum tickets for adults. Using this link gives you a 5% discount on the normal tiqets price for these tickets. Whilst these tickets are slightly more expensive than the official site, we find the tiqets site a lot easier to use.

For example, there are tickets for the Colosseum which include an audioguide or a videoguide. They are not guided tours, so you go into the individual entrance, but there is a different allocation for these tickets. You can get these tickets on the official website, or here. 041b061a72
