TIPS for a perfect visit:
- Only small backpacks or handbags allowed in the Colosseum
- Wear comfortably shoes
-->We'll visit the Colosseum at 8. 30 am or 3 pm to minimize the queue at the entrance (it's a security checkpoint, you must wait in line even if I book tickets ahead of time)
the itinerary can change depending from the meeting point and start time.
