Combined ticket: Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

The best-selling ticket for a visit to the Colosseum is a combined ticket that includes a visit to the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill.

Thanks to this ticket you can explore the first and largest permanent masonry amphitheater in the world, the Colosseum (or Flavian Amphitheater). Inaugurated in 80 AD under the reign of Titus, today it represents the most visited archaeological site in the world and an essential stop for those visiting Rome.

After entering the Colosseum, it is possible to visit the archaeological area of ​​the Roman Forum on the same day , located a few steps from the Flavian Amphitheater, along via dei Fori Imperiali. It collects some of the pearls of the history of the Roman Empire. Monuments from several different eras are concentrated in a relatively small space. From the basilica of Maxentius to the temple of Saturn, from the basilica of Julia to the temple of Vesta.

To the left of the Roman Forum, go up the Palatine Hill , with its imperial palaces overlooking the Circus Maximus. Here we find the residence of Augustus with its stadium, the domus Tiberiana, the palace of Domitian and several temples.
