Das man ohne warten hineinkam, war wirklich toll. Führung ging eine Stunde. Der Guide drückte uns dann die Tickets fürs Forum und Paladin in die Hand, erklärte kurz was mit Kinder/Erwachsenenticket und war verschwunden. Das war wirklich unzureichend, da diese Tickets DIN A4 groß auf italienisch waren und erstmal nicht zu entziffern. Im Gedränge hat man sich diese dann auf Gutdünken selber verteilt. Tja am Eingang zum Forum wurden wir dann rüde förmlich angeschrien. So richtig weiß ich immer noch nicht wieso, vermute, wir hatten zwei Kindertickets (Tochter und ich). Es wurde mit Polizei gedroht und wir wurden hinausgeworfen. Sehr unnötiges Erlebnis! Reingegangen sind wir dort natürlich nicht mehr.. Sollte betreffender Guide in Zukunft anders händeln.

Great and informative Tour - meeting point was away from the crowds, which was helpful and the guides onsite were very friendly and welcoming. We were lucky that the group was a bit too big, so we ended up having a private tour with our own guide for just the 2 of us. The Colosseum itself was impressive - plus our guide Sam shared so many interesting details on the events and architecture of the building and area, which made it easy to imagine what it must have been like in ancient times. It was a true experience, would recommend it to anyone!
