The Colosseum
"As long as the Colosseum, there will Rome when the Colosseum falls, Rome will also fall, but when Rome falls, the world will fall"

How to reach the Colosseum
How to get to the ColosseumThe Colosseum is located about 1 km south-east of the historic center of Rome and less than 2 km from Termini station where lines A and B of the Rome underground cross.
Getting to the Colosseum is therefore very simple, just take the metro line B and get off at the 'Colosseo' stop. You will find yourself right at the foot of the monument!


From Fiumicino Airport
Once landed you can take the Trenitalia train which leaves every 15 minutes to arrive at the Tiburtina station in about 40 minutes and then take the underground line B and get off, in fact, at the Colosseum stop.


From Ciampino Airport
In this case instead you can take the bus that takes you From Ciampino Airport, on the other hand, there is a bus (the 520) which takes you to the nearby Subauguta and Cinecittà stations of line A of the metro and one (720) which leads to the more distant Laurentina station of line B.


From the historic centerBy historic center we mean the part of the city that extends from the Campidoglio to Piazza del Popolo to the north and, from east to west, between the Lungotevere and the Quirinal Hill, including the most iconic places in Rome such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps or the Pantheon.
The Colosseum is located about 1 km south-west from Piazza Venezia (at the foot of the Campidoglio) from which the road (via del Corso) that crosses the entire historic center to Piazza del Popolo starts and, therefore, to reach the Colosseum from the Trevi Fountain or from Piazza di Spagna , for example, just walk to Via del Corso (just a few hundred meters) and then take one of the buses that stop right in front of the Colosseum.
From the Pantheon or from Piazza Navona you can also walk to Corso Vittorio Emanuele and then take the bus to the Colosseum.
From Villa Borghese or Piazza del Popolo , finally, the fastest way is to take the underground line A in the nearby Flaminio station to Termini station and from there take line B (direction Laurentina) and get off precisely in the Colosseum.
