Ok, OK. I know that almost everything that could be written about the colosseum has been written but there are some cool things that most tours don't show you. Our guide showed us a 2000 year old graffitti carving of a gladiator ***. Yep, that's right, a ***. Apparently the bigger you drew it, the greater the warrior you were. It's BIG.
