Colosseum & Roman Forum

The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is a top monument in Italy and has been a symbol of Rome since 80 AD. The Colosseum is the largest amphitheater ever built. It could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. Although partially ruined by earthquakes and stone-robbers, the Colosseum is still an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome. It is one of Rome's most popular tourist attractions.
