"Il Coloseo" Colosseum Tip by alisonr

Colosseum, Rome: 490 reviews and 919 photos


I guess it is one of the sites of the world where you have to go to when given the chance. It is just as I imagined it, having seen it countless times. However you will be surprised by how dirty one of the outside sides is, you don't see photos of that side!!
Go inside and walk around, you can't get right down to the bottom which I was disapointed about, but it is definatley worth the look.
It is a shame that the seats have been removed, unlike the ones in Verona and Arles in France where the arenas are still used. Yes folks, there is more than one Colosseum in the world!
