Tips for the visit:
The Colosseum area also includes the Imperial Forum and the Palatine Hill. To access thiese three locations you only have to buy one ticket. Keep in mind that even if the ticket is just one in the area you will find three different ticket shops (one for each location). This is a very important information because it’s easy to find long queues at the Colosseum’s ticket shop. If that happens just move on one of the other two shops where you will be able to buy the same ticket with a shorter queue. The whole visit usually require about 4 hours. You can also find several tour guides under the Colosseum that you can hire for a guided tour (the prices are various ~ 40-50€ per person).
