Capture the Magnificence of the Colosseum from Outside
Although you cannot see the interior ruins from outside, the majority of the best Colosseum photo spots are located outside the monument. Here are the top locations to capture the perfect shot.
1. Colosseo Metro Station: A Must-Visit Spot
As soon as you exit the Colosseo Metro Station, you’ll be greeted with a jaw-dropping view of the colossal Colosseum. This spot is perfect for capturing the monument in its full glory, but be cautious of pickpockets in and around the metro station.
2. Via Nicola Salvi: A Street Full of Creative Angles
Walking down Via Nicola Salvi, you’ll find numerous vantage points to photograph the Colosseum. This street runs adjacent to the monument, offering a variety of ground-level views and creative angles.
3. Oppian Hill (Colle Oppio): An Elevated Perspective
Climb the cobblestone staircase along Via Nicola Salvi to reach Oppian Hill, a higher vantage point with a breathtaking view of the Colosseum. Arrive early in the morning to avoid the crowds and capture unobstructed shots.
4. La Biga Ristoracaffe: Dine with a View
Across the street from Oppian Hill is La Biga Ristoracaffe. Their outdoor terrace seating offers a fantastic view of the Colosseum, allowing you to enjoy a delicious Italian meal while capturing stunning photos.
Exploring Lesser-Known Spots for Unique Colosseum Photos
Venture beyond the usual spots to find hidden gems that provide unique perspectives of the Colosseum.
5. Meta Sudans: A Historic Emotion
Located next to the Arch of Constantine, Meta Sudans offers a view of the large slanted “crack” in the Colosseum, evoking a sense of history and nostalgia in your photos.
6. Palatine Hill: A Panoramic Vista
Palatine Hill provides not only a view of the Colosseum but also the Roman Forum and surrounding city. This lesser-known spot can be found near the fountain on Palatine Hill. Note that you’ll need to purchase a ticket to access the area.
7. Ristoro Della Salute: Another Dining Option
Similar to La Biga Ristoracaffe, Ristoro Della Salute offers outdoor seating with a view of the Colosseum. Although the food may not be as authentic as other nearby restaurants, the view is worth the visit.
