Colosseum

Rome, Italy
4.7 / 137
colosseum
The main arena of Ancient Rome, a theater for gladiatorial battles, the persecution of prisoners by wild animals and other equally bloody performances of the annual Games of the capital of the Empire. In honor of the opening of the Colosseum in 80 CE Great Games were organized, which lasted more than 3 months. The ancient stones of the Arena still remember the gladiators killed for the fun of the public and torn to pieces for the pleasure of slaves from the captured provinces.
Address:Piazza del Colosseo, 1, Roma

A must see is essential at least on the exterior grounds. A tour guide is highly recommended unless you are well versed in Roman history and architecture. As it can be a little complicated to understand everything you are experiencing. If you plan o.. Read more »
