We booked the 9am tour (only entry) and they made us wait until 10 to walk in with a group. There was not even a line in the colosseum so we could’ve just walked up and bought the tickets ourselves instead of waiting and being harassed by the people there trying to sell junk and take your money.

Sensible meeting point opposite main entrance. Hosts explained process ckearly. We opted to wander around ourselves rather thsn with a guide this allowed us to spend the whole day there. We went round twice which is wrll worth it as so much to see. Sistene Chappel definitely needs 2 visits.

Despite booking 3 months in advance for a timed 2.15pm visit - on arriving at the meeting point, the guides did not have our name on their list, which necessitated them making several calls to their HQ before we were escorted across the road to a group entrance and allowed to make our own way around this fabulous museum. By the time we entered there was no line - so paying the extra to “skip the line” was an irrelevance.
