This engineering astonishment is the site of many gruesome and bloody gladiatorial fights. It was opened in 80 AD and could hold approximately 50 thousand spectators! Visitors can’t help but marvel at the iconic symbol of Rome with its three stories of arched entrances supported columns. The ancient Roman amphitheatre was where the Roman public – poor, rich, the emperor himself – could watch gladiatorial combats and other forms of entertainment, including wild animals that were on show as either clever circus acts trained to perform tricks or doomed for death in the arena’s ‘games’. You have not really been to Rome, if you don’t have a selfie at the Colosseum!
Tip: Avoid the long lines at the Colosseum by purchasing a ticket at the shorter lines of the Roman Forum as the ticket includes entrance to three attractions: Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
