Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Colosseum:

"For the Colosseum and Vatican City, I booked a private tour."  See More

"First of all, Rome is in Lazio, not in Tuscany. I'll give info about Florence in a separate post.  Whether you choose to go on a tour is entirely up to you but, personally (and given that many places have both leaflets audioguides in English) I wouldn't do so. As well as being more expensive, it's not my idea of fun to traipse around with a group of other people at someone else's pace: I prefer to set my own pace, spending more time with things that interest me and much less with those that don't. You don't need a ticket for the Pantheon: it's still a functioning church. There won't be queues as such, just more or fewer people according to the time of day. It's open from 8.30am (9am on Sundays) to 6 or 7.30pm depending on the time of year. It's best to go early or late to avoid crowds (the same applies to St Peter's Basilica and, indeed, to all Rome's sites and sights). I'd strongly advise you to buy tickets online in advance for the Vatican Museums. Queues can be, and usually are, very long indeed. The Vatican Museums really are vast and you need to allow as much time as possible to explore them (they have audioguides if you want). Use the official online site for tickets:"  See More

"Assuming you are going to make your way to the Colosseum and Roman Forum (which are amazing and a must-see), you could easily add in the nearby St Clement Basilica (Basilico San Clemente), which while stunningly beautiful in its own right, is built upon a 4th century church which is above a 1st century home/temple which is above a 1st century AD set of buildings."  See More

"I mainly focused on the main tourist destinations: Colosseum, Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Vatican City, Vatican Museums."  See More

"I absolutely agree with all of the ideas above, saw them all in April and all are worth your time. Remember you can see some of them at night, like the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, only about 4 blocks apart. Lots of light and lots of people. Also a cool shopping area at night. You'll find a lot of people out at night walking, all perfectly safe. Same for the buses and Metro at night. Stay alert, but don't be afraid. One tip to start your trip -- the Fiumicino Airport(main airport) is about a half hour or more from Rome, down on the coast. Assuming you want to get to the main rail terminal (Stazione Termini) in Rome, make sure you get on the right train there. It is easy to make a mistake and end up somewhere else in Rome. Termini is the last stop, so don't get off too soon. Termini is huge, like an airport terminal. Catch a bus or cab outside, or board the Metro inside. if you want to visit museums, you should get a museum pass (Roma Pass: !"  See More
