- *Due to very limited availability, your exact departure time will be assigned to you by the tour operator. This will be selected from the available departures within your selected time frame (E.g. From 08:30 to 12:00). Final schedule will be indicated on your voucher.
- Clients booking the "any departure assigned by tour operator" option will be booked on the timeslot appointed by our local supplier within your chosen date. This option does not give clients the ability to choose their time preference. Please avoid booking other tours that may overlap with the available departures on this day until you have received your confirmed time.
You must bring at least 2 valid identity documents (driver's license, passport, photo id cards - only originals are accepted).
Children under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Please make your reservation at least 24 hours before tour date. Bookings cannot be modified, cancelled and is non-refundable.
Service fees and eventual temporary exhibition fees are due for any kind of ticket and for free admission days.
The time you select on the order form is your preferred time. The museum will automatically confirm the closest available time, which can be any time during opening hours on the selected date, if your preferred time is no longer available.
Due to mandatory security controls by metal detector, waiting time in line at the exterior of the Colosseum to access the monument is about an hour and a half. The "skip-the-line" aspect of your booking applies to the line at the ticket desk, not the security controls.
All our card payments are protected by thawte to give you peace of mind.
