Colosseum, Rome: 495 reviews and 944 photos
From 72 AD, Coloseo Foro Romano entertained the masses. The purpose was to offer a place for citizens to visit and alleviate the stress, and possible revolting against the regime. It worked, and was used rather steadily for 200+ years before the popularity wained. During its era, Christians were not the most to die; only about 2,000. It is said that 30,000 animals were "sacrificed" over the years for the entertainment. There really was gladiators that would fight to the death. Therefore, they had to keep training more constantly and canvassed the whole regional territories of control. This led to more colosseums in various cities to try their talents. Much of the stone walls were torn down to rebuild parts of the city after an earthquake in about 800 AD.
