How to buy the tickets

No line tickets to the Coliseum, Forums and Palatine are available online, on the Coopculture webpage approximately three months in advance. Click here to book the tickets…


In the high season (March through October) there is a shortage of tickets on the official webpage. In this case I recommend buying tickets from the resellers (tickets from the resellers are more expensive than those sold on the official webpage, but therefore they’re almost always available):


Important information

Since 2019 the tickets to the Coliseum are issued with a specific time so if you want to make sure to get in at a certain hour you have to be quick in booking the tickets online.
