The Colosseum (Colosseo) is one of the most popular sites in the world, with thousands of tourists visiting Rome every year. Although it is not difficult to reach this attraction by public transport, you may spend hours waiting in a queue to come inside. Therefore, like each popular site in Rome, for instance, Saint Peter’s Basilica, you should better plan your visit and come in the morning.
The Colosseum opens daily at 8.30 am, so just come prior to its opening time to enjoy the amphitheater without crowds of tourists. Unfortunately, you can buy tickets only online because the ticket desk located nearby is closed by Covid-19.
Do not trust tour guides near the Colosseum who promise you to skip the line
You can use your Roma Pass to visit the Roman Colosseum and many other sites. As an option, you can visit the amphitheater one hour before its closing time, during its last admission time. Usually, crowds are gone and time queuing for the ticket counters is minimal. On average, the Colosseum is crowded chiefly from afternoon to 3.30 pm.
