Perfect way to spend a couple of hours
Book tickets to avoid the queues
Went in the afternoon with booked tickets, and was straight inside...

You have to see this place if you are in Rome. It is not overrated. The area around it is also amazing. There are some nice views of the city.

With out on doubt, if you want to get the historical Roma feeling. I will recommend a guided tour with skip the line.

We decided to do this attraction alone - no pre-booking, no guide, no skip the line.
We arrived around 4pm, queued approx ten minutes for tickets. Paid 12 euros each (under 18yrs, free).
Joined the entrance queue, and although it curved a long way around the buillding, we were through the scanners and inside in around 30minutes.
Be aware there are lots of guys with staff shirts on hassling to upgrade you to skip the line, and telling you the line you're in will take up to two hours!
Once inside - wow. The scale of this impressive building is awesome. We completed our walk around in just over an hour. Granted the guided tour would've been very knowledgeable, but we were happy to go ourselves and just experience the building.
Our ticket is valid for two days, and includes the Roman Forum too, so we're heading back there today..
