An unmissable symbol of ancient Roman life
Considered one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world, the Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, was built from 70 to 80 AD first under emperor Vespasian and then emperor Titus. The goal was to build the most impressive monument of Ancient Rome to accommodate up to 50,000 (or even 80,000) people and entertain crowds with shows representative of the time. It was used for various types of displays; thousands of Romans gathered here to watch gladiator games and fights, to re-enactments of famous battles, to animal hunts or fights between animals, to Greek tragedies or light theatrical performances.
Today, despite being partially damaged by earthquakes and various looting, it remains an imposing building that testifies to the rich past of ancient Rome and is an impressive vestige of the magnificence of the Roman Empire.
Journey back in time, to the glorious days of a great empire, inside the iconic Colosseum. With your local guide, explore and learn more about the history of the most famous monument in Rome.
