"Collapse of the Titans" Colosseum Tip by mattreider

Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos

by mattreider

You must see the Colloseum. Really. Often, when in the midst of an NFL football game, I look around the stadium and think, "you know, a Roman emporor would fit right in around here." The sounds, the spectacle, the crowd -- all exactly the same as 2000 years ago. With less blood, hopefully.

Granted, no Catholics were killed here, and the building had a lot of its marble removed for those new fancy churches. But it's still cool.

Directions: Collesseo Metro Stop. You can't miss it.
