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.Recommended for:

The colosseum is a VERY touristy place, expect men dressed as ancient romans trying to make a buck out of tourist pictures, expect people trying to sell the worst pizza you've ever eaten outside, but it is a must.
To avoid the lines, buy the Roma Pass or the Colosseum tickets online, otherwise, you'll spend half a day just waiting outside.
As you may expect, there is very little beauty left of the original Colosseum, but you can marvel at its greatness and see the galley structures inside. Also, don't forget to walk the outer corridors, it's full of stories and statues that are more interesting than the inside itself.Recommended for:

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!Recommended for:

One of the major sight see in Rome is the Colosseum where you will get impressed by the grandeur of the Romans, and this monument is living proof of their civilization. you can't but imagine the fight scenes and cheering crowd when visiting and thanks also to major blockbuster movies (like Gladiator) that were shot here.Recommended for:

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!Recommended for:

If you only visit 1 historical building in Rome it will always be the symbol of Rome.Turn up early to avoid any possible queues and you will never be disappointed by what you encounter. You also get admission to Palatine hill for no extra cost.Recommended for:

The Colosseum is probably the most impressive building of the Roman Empire. Originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, it was the largest building of the era .
If you want to visit inside of building , try to buy ticket from roman forum intrance in "via del Fori Imperialli" and escape the crowd waiting to enter . Have a look at buildind @night ;very attractive

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.Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

For anyone with an interest in history or who has even just seen Gladiator, the sense of human heritage and destruction in the Colosseum is palpable. For those less interested in that side of things, it's a huge, beautiful and barbarous-seeming structure. Unsurprisingly plagued by queues, the Colosseum is, regardless, not to be missed.Recommended for:

Very ancient roman building where gladiators entertained rich people of the Rome empire. The entrance cost ~5euro, worth seeing the architecture and the size of this structure from inside.Recommended for:
