colosseum, rome

Constructed between 70 and 80 AD, the Colosseum is one of the most magnificent ancient structures still-standing in Europe and an iconic symbol of imperial Rome and its breakthrough achievements in architecture and engineering. With seating capacity of close to 50,000, the Colosseum was once used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles, including executions, re-enactments of famous battles and dramatic theater.
