Skip the Line at the Colosseum

Skip the Line at the Colosseum

Given that the Colosseum is Rome’s most recognized monument and one of Italy’s most popular attractions, you certainly won’t be alone in visiting. But skipping the line means avoiding a long wait and gaining priority access. Here are your options.

Guided Skip-the-Line Tours

Visiting the Colosseum with a guide allows you to use the exclusive tour entrance where lines are always shorter. There is a variety of tours to choose from, including private and kid-friendly options.

Skip-the-Line Colosseum and Ancient Rome Tours

Many skip-the-line Colosseum tours also visit other nearby attractions. Most cover the Forum and Palatine Hill, as all three sights share an admission ticket. Some tours stop at less commonly visited points of interest, such as the Casa di Augusto and Casa di Livia.

Skip-the-Line Colosseum Tours with Meals

Add a savory element to your Colosseum tour with a food or wine experience. You can start your day with a buffet breakfast overlooking the Forum, followed by a skip-the-line tour, or choose a dinner experience with a view of the Colosseum, with an exclusive evening tour of the monument afterward. For a full-day of sightseeing, combine a skip-the-line tour of the Colosseum and ancient Rome with a wine-tasting visit in nearby Frascati.

Sightseeing Bus Tours with Skip-the-Line Access

Cover plenty of ground with a sightseeing bus tour of Rome that stops at all the main attractions in the city. Choose a bus tour option that comes with a Roma Pass, which entitles you to fast-track entry to the Colosseum and several other sights.
