This monument, which has a nearly 2,000-year history, offers a fascinating look into life in the early Roman Empire. Between 72 and 80 AD saw the construction of the Colosseum, which swiftly rose to the top of the Roman amphitheater hierarchy. It served as the Roman Empire’s primary center for entertainment.
More than 50,000 spectators might be seated here to see the violent combat between gladiators and exotic beasts. Sadly, approximately 500,000 humans and 1 million wild creatures have perished here over the games’ more than 500-year run.
