"Look at Colosseum." Colosseum Tip by barcodex

Colosseum, Rome: 68 reviews and 75 photos


Fondest memory: Don't expect to see all that you have seen in 'Gladiator' movie - but its walls are real and damn they're old! I cannot imagine what did these walls see. The bloom and the collapse of Roman Empire, early Christians, barbarians, medieval knights... During the medieval centuries this magnificent building was a bit destroyed by people who lived around - they used stones form Colloseum for building they own houses. But well, it stands still!
You can even notice some 'gladiators' in front of it, always waiting for tourists to take picture and have paid for that. Well, Mr. Crowe in Maximus's role looks more natural (or just closer to our stereotype???), but these guys are also ok, if you want to show your friends something special on your pictures.
