The Colosseum

It is one of Rome’s most distinctive landmarks. This famous elliptical amphitheater is located in the very center of Rome along the Piazza del Colosseo. Considered to be one of the greatest Roman architecture and Roman Engineering, it was built in 72 AD and was designed to feature fight-to-the death combats between gladiators and between gladiators and wild animals. The Colosseum was also used to stage re-enactments of classical mythology dramas and was later on used as quarters for a religious order, a fortress, quarry, housing and workshops.
