"The Colosseum" Colosseum Tip by Skibbe

Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos


The movie 'Gladiator' came out the weekend before I left for Europe and I was glad I saw it when I came to the Colosseum. It brought it alive for me. It is unbelievable that they could have built this 2,000 years ago. It even had a covering for fans in bad weather, like the retractable roof domes that have only recently been built.
