Your first sight of the Colosseum will stop you in your tracks.

Whether you are walking down the road and see it in the distance or if you pop out of he metro station across the road you will stop and be awed by this magnificent arena.

Just looking at in from the outside is great, but take a look inside and you will want to learn more about the awesome ampitheatre that dates back to AD80.

You can do a guided tour, or a self-guided audio tour. I have done both, and found them equally good.

It is a good idea to arrive early, else you may be greeted by a long queue.
