The fascinating history that involves bloodbaths & battles associated with the structure is what draws visitors to this historical site. Getting to the Colosseum by taxi or bus from the airport is simple , but the line to get in to the site itself can be excruciatingly long, in the work of the very busy summer season. Aside from going there at any other time, there’s other ways to get around these long lines. You can buy your ticket either at the Roman Forum or the By de San Gregorio (these ticket counters are usually line-free), or you may even get them online. You can also buy a combo ticket that covers several of Rome main attractions, or call the office to reserve your ticket in advance. Another great way to keep away from long lines at the Colosseum entrance is by joining a tour group.
