"The Colosseum" Colosseum Tip by mytravels
Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos
When one thinks of Rome, the first image that comes to most people's mind is the Colosseum (Colosseo). Built between 72 and 96 A.D., the Colosseum has withstood restorations, earthquakes, and World Wars. The Colosseum was built as an ampitheatre but also staged sea battles, whereas the arena was flooded with water, and the noted gladiator games. Although smaller than I expected, it still remains an archectural wonder!
