Did you know that the Colosseum was built between 72 A.D. and 80 A.D. under the command of Emperor Vespasian? And today it is the largest amphitheatre in the world? You may have studied ancient Rome at school, but what better place to deepen your knowledge of the Ancient Roman Empire than by walking the grounds yourself! You have probably heard of the barbaric fights that took place in the Colosseum during the Ancient Roman rule, where people would fight with animals until the death. The Colosseum has long opening hours, but arriving early will ensure that you are not disappointed by having to wait in line all day. There are some lovely Italian ‘bars’ right by the Colosseum where you can get a cappuccino and brioche for breakfast while taking in the breathtaking view. You have a couple of options when it comes to your visit to the Colosseum. A guided tour is always an awesome option to go with, because you will have a qualified historian with you to explain the history of the Colosseum and elements of the Ancient Roman Empire, as well as someone who will be able to answer all of your questions. These tours can be pricey sometimes, so if you’re on a bit of a budget, definitely opt for the audio tour. The inside of the Colosseum is marked really well for you to be able to follow your own guided tour. Photo by L A L A S Z A on Unsplash
