"Anfiteatro Flavio (Coliseo)" Colosseum Tip by pginer

Colosseum, Rome: 495 reviews and 944 photos

 
 

Well, this is a must see monument. It was built in 72 BC. Many cristians died here, and also slaves and gladiators because the Coliseum was used for spectacles
It was covered by marble but today there is no marble left. 50.000 people gathered here for bloody spectacles.
