"Colosseum" Colosseum Tip by agarcia

Colosseum, Rome: 495 reviews and 944 photos

  The famous Colosseum
by agarcia
 
 

Colosseum has a powerful strength on people collective imagination, and it’s easy to discover the reason for that, once that you get close to it. It’s huge, monumental, and it holds a history of brutal fights that make it almost more impressive. Probably is just the morbid curiosity that keeps the Colosseum fame, but still, it’s the more characteristic (and well-known) legacy of the ancient Rome, so it totally deserves a visit.
