I love receiving cool travel advice ! It's even better when it comes from my own children ( I've imprinted my love of travel well!😂) Taking a night tour of the Coliseum was so much more of an experience than a typical day time tour. It was magical , you could really get a sense of how many people & animals walked these halls . Also, it was NOT crowded w mobs of people ! Lastly , the nighttime lights are breathtaking.
We made our reservations on line ahead of time through the official Coliseum site called coopculture.IT . We printed our confirmations , showed up at the main entrance around 20 min before start of the 8:30pm tour & the security guard lets you in to trade your confirmation form for a ticket (tour sticker) . We had about 20 people in our tour . They give you head sets so that the tour guide can walk and talk while you get to hear it all. It felt like we had the place to ourselves even though there were other tours staggered around ours .
I highly recommend it for those looking for a unique way to see the Coliseum . You won't be disappointed ! #travelcrazyone #italy #rome #roma #ancientrome #coliseum #romecolosseum #tour #uniquetourism #nighttour
