The largest amphitheatre in the world, the Colosseum in Rome is one of the most famous tourist attractions on the planet. If you are visiting Italy and planning a trip to the Colosseum in the EternalCity, then you should be prepared for the risks involved so that the chance of suffering personal injury is minimal.
How do I avoid having an accident at the Colosseum?
Plan your day around Rome carefully and avoid crowded areas if you can.
Be wary of pickpockets who may target the main tourist areas such as the Colosseum.
Whilst visiting the Colosseum itself stay in the correct designated areas. Wandering off to an area which tourists are not allowed in could result in a fall or trip, causing personal injury
Keep hydrated throughout the day, especially if you are sightseeing. Drinking fluids will reduce the risk of you falling in the heat and having an accident.Open Claim Calculator
Watch out for road traffic. The traffic system in Italy differs from the UK, and many motorists do not have much consideration for pedestrians, especially in the large roundabout junction that rings around the Colosseum. Prevalent, in Rome especially, are mopeds, whose drivers may not see pedestrians and could be a potential cause of a road traffic accident.
