Discover the oldest and world’s most famous amphitheater in comfort
Picture this; you are traveling in Italy and want to be able to enjoy the peninsula far and wide. With what the country has to offer, it’s worth it. Of course, during your stay in Rome, a must is the Colosseum, an unmissable symbol of the eternity of the city, a bastion of the fascinating era of the Roman Empire. A visit will allow you to travel back in time. In the presence of the emperor, the senators, and the inhabitants of the city, the Colosseum offered terrible and sumptuous spectacles: entertainment was varied. Here you could see animals of all kinds fighting against other animals, fights between animals and men or men with each other – usually gladiators, but sometimes also slaves or prisoners of war.
The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, is located in the center of the city of Rome and its name derives from “colossal”, after a colossal statue of Nero which stood outside. It is the most important Roman amphitheater, as well as the most imposing monument of ancient Rome remains for us. It was inaugurated in 80 A.D. with games that lasted 100 days and cost the lives of more than 5,000 animals. In the past, it could host from 50,000 to 80,000 spectators.
Even today it represents a reference point for the construction of football stadiums thanks to its 80 entrances and its system of corridors and stairs. It consists of three floors, each with a different style to accommodate a different audience: the emperor closest to the arena (protected from throwing weapons and body parts by a net) and the most distant citizens (the poor and the women sat on the upper steps).
Book the perfect tour for you
Considered one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, with more than 7 million visitors a year, the imposing Flavian Amphitheater was declared in 1980 a World Heritage Site, together with the entire historic center of Rome within the city walls. In order to truly admire and learn more of its history, it is strongly recommended to plan in advance by booking skip-the-line tickets. These tickets often also include access to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
There are tours for all tastes, for adults and children, to allow everyone to discover this magical place at their leisure. Your local guide will enthusiastically tell you stories and anecdotes about the men who fought in the arenas and the emperors who ruled them.
