Colosseum

The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater or simply as Amphitheatrum, is the largest and most important Roman amphitheater that can hold up to 50,000 spectators.

History

Its construction was begun by Vespasian in 72 AC in the center of Rome, in a valley where there was an artificial lake dug by Nero for his Domus Aurea. It was inaugurated by Titus in 80 AC with a hundred days of games and was used for events, public performances as hunting, battles between animals (venationes), killing of prisonners by ferocious beasts or other types of executions (noxii), fights between gladiators (munera), re-enactments of famous battles (naumachia) and dramas based on classical mythology.

During the Jubilee of 1675 the Coliseum became a sacred site in memory of many Christian martyrs here condemned to torture. In 1744 Pope Benedict XIV had built there the Fifteen Stations of the Cross, and in 1749 he declared the Colosseum church devoted to Christ and to the Christian martyrs.

In 1980, along with all the historical center of Rome, it was included in the list of World Heritage of humanity by UNESCO. In 2007 the complex was also included among the Seven Wonders of the modern world.

They have finished cleaning the outside of this speculator incredible building. We did a tour where you went right underneath, stood on the floor and went all the way to the top of the Colosseum.

We pre booked tickets and then also decided to pay a little extra to get a guided tour which also helped skip the queues! The guide was full of knowledge and it was interesting listening to her but once inside and we stood listening to her. We then were left to explore on our own! The colosseum is vast! You...

At 12 Euros each we felt this attraction was excellent value for money, the queues weren't too long when we visited and we just wanted to wander around on our own rather than being part of a tour group. There is so much to see, we spent the whole day there.

Even if as me you have visited several times it is worth going back and ambling around as the sensitive renovations and lighting alone are great to see.One of the top Tourist spots to hang out of a night

You need to spend more than an hour. You should get a guide. Skip the line is an easy way to get in.
30 May 2016
If in Rome you will have to visit. It is worth it. Go around 4pm and there are very little queues! Avoid the locals dressed as Gladiators or soldiers, will let you take photos then hassle you for money.

When you think of the history and the goings-on that were supposed to have taken place there just seeing what is left is enough to take your breath away!
