A friend and I purchased skip the line tour with Viator. We left our hotel about an hour and fifteen minutes early to walk around a bit before the tour started however there were street closures all over the city due to a bike race and protest. Our poor driver driving all over Rome did his best to get us there but missed the 10:30 show time for the 11am tour. We understood the strict rules for the Colosseums entry, what we could not understand is Viator Tours not allowing us to take an open slot for one of the next tours. Viator Tours did say we could do another tour but PAY again! We walked away with no tour.
Take this tour if you do want to skip the line - then skip the tour!

The tour guide was so boring that I made an excuse to leave and continue the tour on my own. All she was talking about was the architecture ( and I did give her half an hour chance) I even double checked that possibly I signed up for an architecture tour.
The skip of the line was great however on this day there was no line so in he-insight I should have just gone on my own.
Our tour guide Francesca was very enthusiastic, cheerful and knowledge about the Colosseum. She was also well prepared with her own illustration books for us to easier understanding the history and other facts of the Colosseum. Would definitely recommend her to anyone!
One thing is that the meeting up is a bit of a walk from the metro so spare a good 10-15min to find to avoid being late.
