One ticket, three attractions

  • Colosseum : originally called Flavian Amphitheater (from the name of the family under which took place the construction works), it was inaugurated in 80 AC and it's now known as Colosseum for the nearby statue of Nero that for its size was called "Colossus of Nero". This complex, declared one of the World Heritages of umanity from UNESCO and included few years ago between the Seven Wonders of the modern world, it housed public events such as fights between gladiators (munera), fights between animals (venationes), re-enactments of famous battles (naumachia) and killing of prisoners, often Christian martyrs (noxii).

 

  • Roman Forum : the valley of the Forum was once a marshy area, but at the end of the 7th century BC after his drainage, there was made a flooring and thus was created a large rectangular square where took place the market and where it converged the major streets like the Via Sacra; over the centuries, there were built many monuments for the political, judicial and religious activities (the Comitium, the Curia, the Temple of Vespasian and Titus, the Temple of Vesta and that of Saturn, the Arch of Septimius Severus, the Basilica of Massenzio, and finally the Column of Foca).

 

  • Palatine : veritable outdoor museum, according to the tradition it was the hill where Romulus and Remus were found and suckled by the Lupa (she-wolf) and where, at the mid-eighth century BC, Romulus himself founded the first nucleus of Rome. In the Republican period it was seat of various cults, in particular that of Magna Mater (Cybele) and that of Apollo and Vesta. During the Imperial Age it was chosen by the Emperor Augustus as a place of residence, and since then there were built all the palaces of the members of the ruling class (that of Nero, of the Flavi, of Tiberius, of Septimius Severus...).

"Lo mejor fue comprar el ticket con ustedes porque se evitó las largas filas, se cumplió con los lugares comprados, pero el foro Romano cerró sus puertas a las 4:30 pm y eso se debe tomar en cuenta. Pero por lo demás fue lo mejor."

"שרות מהיר, זמין ואמין. לאחר הדפסת הוואצ'ר יש להמיר אותו לכרטיסי כניסה וזאת עושים בתור מיוחד קצר יותר בקופות הקולסאום. עם הרטיסים שמקבלים נכנסים לקוליסאום ומדלגים על התורים. בהחלט שווה 4 יורו עמלה לכרטיס."

"Booking process was smooth. Got vouchers within 24 hours. Only drawback was that vouchers were not e-tickets ie you cannot just show the vouchers on smartphone and skip the queue. One has to print out the voucher which can be a hassle if you are visiting on Sunday and can't find a copier shop open. "
