The Colosseum itself was mind boggling, and incalculable wealth must have been required, the forum also. Only 4 stars as we couldn't get the audio for first time, and having gone quickly round.

Lovely tour! Downloading the app was straightforward... Adding the relevant audio guide requires the purchase code ... The app works great , you have to scan waypoints to make the audio guide continue, if you can't find one you get the option to skip the scan process and the audio guide continues. Kids loved the interaction of the app , don't forget you need headphones.

Visited with the family and these tours tickets were excellent as we had not planned ahead! The Colloseum is well worth it and everyone learned something.

It was completely worth it to be able to skip the line and take the tour. I imagine it would have been a two hour wait to get in and have to join huge groups with one guide speaking, otherwise
