your visit to the Colosseum
how to get here
The Colosseum and the Palatine Hill are located in the centre of Rome. Close to the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia, this site is in a convenient location close to other tourist attractions and services. The nearest metro station is Colosseo (Line B), which is only 1 minute away from the site.
when to go
It might seem crazy to spend double the money and double the time, but like many wonders of the world, the Colosseum deserves to be seen both at day and night. We recommend a nighttime visit to the illuminated Colosseum.
Take your time to visit properly. The Colosseum, the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum cover a great deal of space and with so many crowds of tourists around, it can take quite a few hours to get to everything you want to see.
Spring (April to June) and autumn (September and October) are the best times: the weather is nice and there are many festivals and outdoor events. But even a visit in the winter, or in the rain, has its charm.
