Colosseum, Rome

Planning to visit the Colosseum? Check out our information below!


The must-see of Rome is The Colosseum, located in the historic centre. The Colosseum, is the largest amphitheatre in the Roman world and could seat more than 50,000 spectators. The Colosseum regularly hosted theatrical performances of gold or gladiators battling each other and wild animals. The structure no longer looks as it did in its heyday, but that doesn’t make the piece of history any less impressive. The Colosseum is on the list of the seven wonders of the world.

Through the large gate, where the gladiators also made their entrance, you can visit the stands, arena and underground areas of this largest amphitheatre of Roman times. It is very impressive to visit this structure.

Opening hours:

The Colosseum is open every day throughout the year from: 09:00 AM to 04:30 PM. Just remember that the last entry is always one hour before closing time.
