We ended up with 'free' tickets to the Coliseum as part of our Segway tour so decided to go the next day, which was a Sunday. It was actually the first Sunday of the month so the Coliseum was free! Ooohhh, so THAT's why the line was sooooo long. But, it wasn't all wasted as we had 'skip the line' tickets, which allowed us to do just that and be one of the first 10 people into the Coliseum. You'll see as you look at the photos what a huge bonus that really was.
