"The Coliseum" Colosseum Tip by tyerks

Colosseum, Rome: 496 reviews and 946 photos

When in Rome, the one thing that everyone knows Rome for, the Coliseum, is a must see! It's tremendous in size, and the architecture is really amazing if you think about it. You can walk up the same steps that people walked up so many many years ago. Right now, they are building a floor section, so you can see that that is where the fights took place and underneath is where they kept people and the animals. Although it is crowded, it's so huge that it's not a big deal. It's a definite must see.

Directions: down the street from Piazza Venezia, can't miss it
