The Colosseum

One of the monuments you can visit with our tours in Rome

Contruction of the Colosseum (which was called Flavian Amphitheatre for a long time) began in the first century, and the stadium survived for 2000 years to become the icon of the Eternal City. Although the construction is still standing strong, it has clearly suffered from earthquakes, wars, and also plundering, all of which explain the missing parts of the huge structure. Going inside the place looked smaller than I expected, but this is probably caused by the reconstruction going on.
