My trip to Rome wouldn't be complete without a trip to the Colosseum. I didn't go inside because I opted out of the tour but for those enthusiasts who do want to see it, book tickets in advance or with your tour group. It beats waiting in that long line. It seems smaller than I thought it would be but considering they constructed this over 1900 years ago without the use of modern machinery, it's definitely a feat to be seen in person. It's rather impressive nonetheless and you can see the change in architecture throughout the years in each level.
The street leading up to the Colosseum and Roman Forum was blocked off. I'm not sure if this is normal or just because of the Christmas holidays but I was grateful nonetheless. I hear it's even better at night but only got to see it during the day.

Legacy of barbarism aside, this is just majestic. Simply incredible to behold! There is a reason why this is rightly one of the moderns of the world. Do not miss.

Amazing!!! If you get the opportunity splurge for a VIP Tour of the Colosseum!
Will take you to the highest tier on the inside and also underneath the Colosseum.
The BEST way I have ever seen it!

This is another must see sight. If you are going to do the tour, you mist sign up for them early. Honestly, they're a little more pricier, and they don't take you anywhere you can't see yourself. And make sure you're getting your tour from the people that are supposed to be doing them.
Taking the time to take this all in is awesome! There's not a whole lot of places inside that you can see/walk to, as they're crumbling, or being stabilized, but you can get into about 1/4 of it. If you look towards the left you'll see a small section that still has the seats in it. A fun game to play while you're there, is spot how many cats. They actually make a calender from the Colosseum cats!

Astounding to see in person. It's really hard to describe being here, knowing what happened within the wall of this arena. You should be able to buy a combination ticket at Palatine or the Roman forum that will help skip the long lines at the Colosseum.

I've always been fascinated by the Colosseo. Ever since watching Gladiator, I've tried to imagine what it must've been like to gaze upon it during the height of its glory. When I pass by AT&T Park in San Francisco, I like to imagine I'm in ancient Rome, passing the Colosseo with all its flags flying.
The lines for this monument are long. Like many other places to visit in Roma, it may be better to join a group because you often get front-of-line privileges. A little pre-planning can save you hours of waiting in lines.
To be inside the Colosseo is impressive, though it's not a place I would find myself spending hours in. To be honest, I was only in there for a short while... before rushing off to meet a bella ragazza romana davanti al Foro Romano...

Not many words necessary to describe how Colosseum was. The fact that I was standing on the structures from 1st century, walking along the corridor that people used to held the fierce animals, stepping the same stones as the gladiators of Roman Empire… I can’t say what was the most impressive among all. That’s why we are visiting old ruins even though 2/3 of the original structures are long gone. The idea, the spirit, the memory and the history; everything matters. Because Colosseum was such a dramatic place in countless movies and novels, it felt more surreal to standing inside of this Roman arena. Colosseum alone, Rome is worth visiting.

An obvious must see when in Rome. Pay the amount to go inside for a tour and learn more about the history. There will be tour guides around that will get you ahead of the line (for charge) but the line will be very long. One can always get amazing pictures outside.
