The Colosseum is the most visited sight in Italy. Tickets for the Colosseum are also valid for the neighbouring excavation Forum Romanum and Palatin. Thus, these ancient sights are also visited by thousands of people every day.
There are normal tickets for the Colosseum and the other sights. But there are also other tickets. On the one hand there are of course guided tours, also offers in English language. On the other hand there are for example tours into the inner cellars of the Colosseum. This is very interesting. From here the gladiators came up into the arena, here were the cages of the wild animals and the whole shows were steered from the underground. See: >>> Underground tours colosseum
