Colosseum and Carcer Tullianum Combo ticket

Take a journey to the past at world-famous Ancient Rome monuments and archaeological sites. With one combined ticket you can access the Colosseum and the Carcer Tullianum Museum (also called Mamertine Prison), as well as the Roman Forum and the Palatine Museum. Enter the Archaeological Area through a reserved entrance, skip the line at the Colosseum, and discover how the real Republican Rome really looked thanks to multimedia reconstructions at the Carcer Tullianum.

Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

The Colosseum is the symbol of Italy's gigantic cultural heritage all over the world. This visit takes you inside the majestic Flavian Amphitheater, admiring its arena where gladiators and wild beasts fought for their lives and its four floors lined with arches and columns. Outside this old stadium, visitors can explore the once vibrant Roman Forum, the political and cultural heart of the city, walking through the ruins of its palaces, temples and markets. The Palatine hill and the Palatine Museum at its top recall the legendary origins of Rome and Romulus and Remus's story, with an exhibition of relics found in several Roman domus.

Carcer Tullianum Museum

Located near the Roman Forum, the Carcer Tullianum is a monument to Republican Rome. Here some of most famous enemies of the Empire have been imprisoned and executed, such as the Gallic general Vercingetorix. According to traditions, the water spring inside this prison was miraculously created by St. Peter to baptize prisoners and guards. An in-depth multimedia tour with tablets, including texts, multilingual videos, and augmented reality reconstructions, invites visitors and pilgrims to the explore the artworks and archaeological artifacts of this historical complex, as well as contemplating its spiritual mysteries.
