Audio-guided tours provide detailed insight into Colosseum’s history, purpose and architecture. 

They are also cheaper compared to the guided group tours for the Colosseum. 

Self-guided tour or guided tour

There are multiple types of Colosseum guided tour tickets available for tourists. 

Typically, a group consists of 20 to 30 tourists and is led by a local guide. 

Guided tours with fewer participants say 12 to 15, are also available.

A semi-private Colosseum tour usually has six to ten members.

The fewer the number of tourists in the group, the costlier the guided tour.

If the tour cost is not an issue, and you want to hear stories and anecdotes, we recommend a guided tour.

Guided tours with fewer participants are intimate and personal because the guide can answer most of your questions.

If you are on a budget holiday and want to explore the Roman attraction at your own pace, it is better to opt for the skip the line ticket.

They are the cheapest way to enter the ancient marvel.
