About

The Colosseum (Colosseo in Italian), also known as Flavian Amphitheater, is the largest amphitheater ever built. It was the center of the ancient city of Rome. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in AD 72. The Colosseum is listed as one of the seven wonders of the World and it’s one of the most famous attractions in Rome.

Considering that it’s almost 2000 years old, the building is still in perfect conditions and you can still imagine how the 65.000 spectators would enjoy their time inside the stadium.

In fact, in ancient Rome, the Colosseum was the center of the entertainment. Many events were held here, like gladiatorial contests, public spectacles, and dramas based on Classical mythology.

You can visit the entire structure alone, listening to an audio guide or with a local guide.
