Description

A monument to raw, merciless power, the Colosseum (Colosseo) is the most thrilling of Rome’s ancient sights. It’s not just the amazing completeness of the place, or its size, but the sense of violent history that resonates: it was here that gladiators met in mortal combat and condemned prisoners fought off wild beasts in front of baying, bloodthirsty crowds.
