  The Colosium
by huwhit

The Colosium is truly incredible. You've seen it in the movies, reconstructed in Gladiator, heard about it, dreamt about it.

Guess what - it is all true - most of it still stands today. With supporting walls built in the 1960's to stop the whole thing falling down, if you go to Rome without going to the Colosium, you are crazy.

Invest in a tour of the site, but be wary of some operators - just keep your wits about you.

It really is incredible - the steps on the way out of the Colosium were tilited foward to literally "force" the people out so that the whole palce could be emptied quickly.

It is facts such as this that reinfoce the need for a credible guide - it is all so interesting.
