How long is the queue at the Colosseum?

The Colosseum (Colosseo) is one of the most popular sites in the world with thousands of tourists come to Rome to visit it every year. Despite the fact that it is not difficult to reach this attraction by public transport, you may spend hours of waiting in a queue to come inside. The same with each popular site of Rome, as for instance, Saint Peter’s Basilica, you should better plan your visit in advance and come in the morning time. The Colosseum opens daily at 8.30 am, so just come prior to its opening time to enjoy the amphitheater without crowds of tourists. You can buy tickets either in any ticket desk located nearby the site or online.
