"Colosseo" Colosseum Tip by acemj

Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos


The symbol of Rome, the Colosseum's original name was the Flavian Ampitheater. It was the first real monument I saw in Rome. I walked out of my hostel in what I thought was the general direction of the 'touristy' area (that's how little I knew of the area on my first day). Fortunately, as I was walking down the street, I looked down a narrow alley and could see just a sliver of the Colosseum. It's a tribute to the fame of this amazing structure that seeing just a small section of it was enough for me to recognize it without a doubt.
