Tourists can now buy tickets to the Colosseum on the Internet and avoid long lines at the ancient Roman arena, officials said.

The online booking system allows visitors to pick a spot on a guided tour in their preferred language, giving them access to the 1st century arena and its temporary exhibitions as well as the nearby Palatine Hill, where Rome's emperors lived in luxury.

Each year 4 million people pay to visit the Colosseum and the Palatine. Rome authorities have said they expect 5 million visitors this year.

Go to www.pierreci.it or www.ticketclic.it to buy tickets.
