L' audio guide a mal fonctionné au Colisée et n' a pas fonctionné du tout au Mont Palatin. Quel dommage ! Je ne renouvellerai pas l' expérience avec headout.

Breathtaking monument , everything was great , just pay attention to type of guided tour you are about to book , because ours said "guided tour" and then when we arrived and showed them our tickets , they said that this is a digital guided tour ( the one we booked) ( which was on the email , at the very end )

We went to touristation. Then the guide brought us to the entrance of the Roman Forum, to prove that our children were below 18. Then we had to go back to touristation for the movie experience. Then Colosseum and afterward the Roman Forum. Many extra steps with little children. It would have been better to meet at the entrance of the Roman Forum.

entradas sin problemas. con la Audioguía esperaba otro servicio. no puede usarlo. muy complicado la bajada de la guía. no teníamos auriculares. Pensábamos que retirabamos un aparato y listo. decepción con eso. lo demás todo bien.

The glory of the Colosseum

The Colosseum is one of Italy’s most popular destinations. Believed to have been constructed as a gift from the ancient emperors to the Roman people, this grand outdoor amphitheater once served as an epicenter for entertainment, hosting various public spectacles and games. A stage for gladiator fights, often including animals, the Colosseum has quite the bloody past. Step back in time, marvel at the impressive architecture, and walk the floor of the greatest arena known to mankind.

Marvel at the Roman Forum & Palatine Hill

Your Colosseum ticket also includes entry to the Palatine Hill and Roman Forum. Head to the Roman Forum and travel back in time as you walk along the same paths as the ancient Romans did. You’ll get a chance to witness popular sites including the Temple of Antoninus Pius, Temple of Castor and Pollux, Temple of Saturn, Arch of Septimius Severus, and much more.

Palatine Hill offers one of the best views of the city. Here, the lush Farnese Gardens offer a peaceful escape from the crowds. Relax amidst manicured terraces, statues, and panoramic views of the Roman Forum and Colosseum. Once considered the most desirable neighborhood in Rome, Palatine Hill lives on as an extensive archaeological site and was the chosen spot for Emperors to build their homes. To enhance your experience, you can step into the walls of the Mamertine Prison with a ticket upgrade, and learn about the foes of Rome once imprisoned here.
