If you like sports this is the place to see, if you like theatre this is the place to see and if you like history and architecture this is the place to see! Basically if you go to Rome for the first time and don’t see the coliseum then you really will have missed out on something truly spectacular!
The Coliseum was built in 72AD and took 8 years to complete, at its peak it could hold over 80,000 seated spectators and to keep those spectators entertained it is estimated that over 500,000 people were killed as part of the coliseum games. The now partially ruined structure stands as a great reminder of Imperial Rome.
