    Once again I will say about Colosseum, but it did impressed me. If you see long line, do not turn away, it moves very quickly, it will not take you more than 30 min. to get inside.

    The Coliseum (again). This is the view out of the side of the Coliseum. It's actually looking toward the Roman Forum, and you can see an arch there. It was an amazing place to visit.

    The coloseum is a spectacular work of art. Its was built over 1000 years ago and its still standing. At night from far it looks like a crown all lit up from the inside...

    The Colosseum is one of those things you just have to see. There are guided tours which you can join and leave as it suits.

    Must see Ancient Rome and go on a tour. Nothing is marked well in Rome and it is neat to get the history. Makes what you are seeing so much more enjoyable

    Naturally, you must see the Colosseum, and the Arch of Constantine, which is right next to the Colosseum. They are both quite impressive.
    The picture says it better than I can!

    The Arch of Constantine

    Go to the Coloseum, where countless gladiators died during the latter years of the Roman Empire. If you have trouble climing steep, narrow stairs, then please be careful.

    Update to previous post:
    http://www.coopculture.it/en/ is informing visitors, tour guides and school groups that for security reasons, backpacks, large handbags and luggage are not allowed inside the excavations at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum in Rome. Actual dimensions of allowable bags has not yet been determined for these sites but have been recently restricted to 30x30x15 cm (abt 12 x 12 x 6") or smaller at Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplonti, Stabia and the Museum of Boscoreale so that might be a good guidline until further notice.

    Visitors to Rome are asked leave larger items at their hotel or check them at the left-luggage office at Termini. Additonally, if you have scheduled a tour at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum, you're asked to arrive 30 minutes beforehand to ensure timely passage through security checks.

    1/16/2015: There appears to be a recent tightening of security at the Colosseum, Palatine and Forum. From the http://www.coopculture.it website for these three attractions:

    "ATTENTION PLEASE! We inform visitors that inside the monument it is strictly forbidden to enter with backpacks, handbags and luggage. "

    As there is no baggage check facilities at these attractions, it looks like you're going to have to visit these sites only with what can be carried in your pockets. I'll update this notice if newer information proves otherwise.
