"Colosseum (Colosseo)" Colosseum Tip by paradisedreamer

Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos


The colosseum was much bigger than I had expected and extremely interesting. It is amazing to see something so old still standing. The colosseum was built in 72 AD and inaugurated by Titus eight years later in a 100-day ceremony. At first it was supposed to be a horse racing circuit, but became site for bloody gladiator contests. The place had a capacity of 55,000 seats.
