No trip to Rome is complete without a visit to the famous Colosseum and Roman Forum. It's advisable to purchase head of the line tickets prior to your visit to gain access without having to stand in line for tickets. There are many websites offering these and can save you many valuable hours. The Roman forum is especially enjoyable and can be toured easily with an audio guide available either onsite, or online. We downloaded one using the Rick Steves app for android. These are a great way to save money while getting a better appreciation for the captivating ruins of such a great city.
