The new named tickets and the new ticket office: a warm welcome to the history of Rome

The experience of visiting the Colosseum is enriched with new details that make every step inside this marvel even more special. With the introduction of named tickets (already in use for Underground visits and evening entrances from June 2022), your journey into the heart of Ancient Rome begins right from the moment you book. Each ticket will bear your name and surname, creating a personal link with this extraordinary testament to the past.

In addition, to make your arrival even easier, a new ticket office in Largo della Salaria Vecchia/Via dei Fori Imperiali joins the one already present in Piazza del Colosseo. This means more ticket collection points, an even faster and more efficient service, and a welcoming atmosphere that welcomes you to the ancient world. Every step inside this monument is a plunge into the thousand-year history of Rome. The majestic arches, the intricate corridors, and the arena where spectacular gladiator battles once took place, all tell a story of grandeur and power. And now, thanks to the new named tickets, you will be part of this narrative.

Increasing the number of tickets: more opportunities for tourists

To favour visitors who prefer to buy tickets directly on site, the percentage of coupons sold on site will be doubled. This means that more people will have access to tickets even without booking in advance. Early booking is still highly recommended, and we suggest you book your ticket by following the directions on the Visit Rome Pass portal, the city card for visiting Rome. This option ensures seamless access, allowing you to fully enjoy this extraordinary experience without any time wastage.

The introduction of named tickets is a decisive response to the speculative practices that have plagued the purchase of tickets for the Colosseum. Thanks to this measure, tourists will finally be able to enjoy an authentic and uncomplicated experience. This initiative is intended to ensure that any tourist wishing to admire this archaeological marvel can do so with ease. In addition to this personal connection, the new named tickets offer you the chance to avoid long queues and enter directly into the heart of this historical wonder.
