What to remember
  • Please note: if you add the audioguide to your purchase, remember to download it on your smartphone. You will not receive another device. Your coordinator will help you set it up in case you need assistance

  • The guided tour is available in English, Italian, Spanish, French and Portuguese

  • Please remember that it's possible to access only once to each included site
  • Large bags/backpacks/suitcases are not permitted inside sites (small bags are allowed) and there are no cloakrooms at the site
  • Entrance to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Palatine is free on the first Sunday of each month
  • Please note: due to mandatory security metal detector checks, the waiting time at the entrance line to the Colosseum is about 90 minutes. The "skip-the-line" tickets allow you to skip the ticket purchasing line, not the mandatory security check
  • There is always the possibility, outside of the provider's control, that access to the Arena of the Colosseum can be denied. This can be due to various reasons (extreme weather conditions or security reasons), at the discretion of the Colosseum management; in these cases, it is not possible to ask for a refund
