Has anyone had the experience of going to the Guided audio tour ticket window and purchasing their ticket. I read that this would negate having to stand in the regular ticket line. I am having difficulty figuring exactly what time I will be there, therefore can not buy in advance on-line.

We did this. We showed up and just walked up to the ticket window and bought the audio tour. You need to leave them your driver's license as a deposit for the audio player. We then just walked around (shared the player between the two of us) and listened. If you want a real person guided tour you can get one, but they are more expensive and you then have to wait for a tour to be available. To be honest you with I can't remember the cost (and this was last June!) I want to say it was 11 Euros? maybe a couple of more for the audio tour...

Welcome to Cruise Chat, Kirsten Marie!! Avoid the ticket lines by purchasing your ticket at a couple of other offices which are usually line-free. One is inside the nearby Roman Forum and another is on Via de San Gregorio. The ticket is good for 24 hours and is good for both the Roman Colosseum and the Palatine Hill.

We walked to the window and purchased our ticket. I feel we were riped off by doing this because the sign stated one price and they chaged us a much higher price. The audio tour made the experiance very difficult and we personally wished we had not rented them. Again the price was much higher for he audio tour then what the price stated. Buyer beware. But by all means see the colisseum it was a wonderful site and experiance. The Vatican was also a true highlight of our trip and I did not expect it.
