The Colosseum to Rome is what the Pyramids of Giza are to Cairo. A magnificent monument and a distinguishing symbol of this eternal city since its construction in 1st century AD. Although still large and impressive today, the Colosseum has been reduced significantly over time. Much of the stones and marble was used as building material for other later edifices, particularly the Vatican. A tour of this marvel is a must for any first time visitor to Rome.
