The Colosseum in Rome: a must-see attraction

The Colosseum, also called Flavian Amphitheater, is considered one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world with more than 7 million visitors a year. In 1980 it has been declared a World Heritage Site together with the entire historic center of Rome within the city walls in their widest extension. The building (86 meters long and 54 meters wide) was built between 70 and 80 AD during the reign of the emperors Vespasian and Titus to accommodate up to 50,000 people (or even 80,000). It was used to entertain crowds with gladiator games and animal hunts, a very representative Roman show of the time. Made of marble and limestone, the structure has since been damaged by earthquakes and various looting but remains an impressive vestige of the magnificence of Ancient Rome.
