Description

The Roman Colosseum - one of the most iconic landmarks known world-over - is one of Italy's most prominent and well-known attractions. Being the world's largest amphitheatre, the Colosseum is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well as a world wonder, drawing awe from around the world. The history of the Colosseum dates back to 70–72 AD, when it was constructed under the rule of Emperor Vespasian in order to host violent gladiator matches where numbers of men and animals were forced to fight for their lives. At present, the Colosseum is open to the public for viewing and also includes a museum in the upper floor of the outer wall. A visit to the Colosseum is a must when sight-seeing in Rome and will undoubtedly be a memorable experience.
