  The roman road.

The colosseum is only slightly smaller than the one in Rome but is better preserved.Its hard to imagine how they built this only having the basic tools,our tour guide told us they had to transport blocks of sandstone from quarries 32km away while water was carried 16km through an underground aqueduct.If you click on the picture you can see the roman road on the right.
