Your profile says you live in Rome, so is this a genuine question?

Just buy your ticket outside the entrance, €12.

If you don't want to queue (queues can be, and usually are, very long) you can use the official online ticketing site:

Tickets are 12 euro. If you use agency websites you'll almost certainly pay an admin fee as well.

There was a very short line when we were there. If that bothers you, use the official site leics2 gave you above. If you book ahead, keep in mind that it could rain that day. We really try to avoid booking ahead for outdoor attractions.

Another first time poster dropped a spam reply which I deleted, so it's possible this was just a spam setup.

Well yes, it was definitely a spam setup. I'll leave the thread, as leics answer is good and hey, maybe it's useful to someone else searching for the topic :)

It just so happens that entry is free on the first Sunday of each month. We were there Sunday 7 January 2018 - the queue took about 30 minutes but it was well worth it. A great introduction to Rome and warm, sunny weather to boot!

Not anymore. Most (actually all, I believe) of the Italian state museums will only be open the first Sundays of the off-season months (October - March). Then they have 8 discretionary free days. The Colosseum's 2019 free 8 days will be:

9th of May
5th of June
29th of June
23rd of September
4th of October
4th of November
22th of November
18th of December

As each museum's calendar of discretionary free days may be different, it's advised to check their individual websites for information. The Borghese in Rome still requires reservations for those days. The state museums are also free during Culture Week, which just occurred last month.

Not anymore.

Shame! That freebie was a very pleasant surprise.
