In 72 AD, in order to soothe the people who were under the corrupt rule of Nero the Great, Vespasian emperor began to build this huge marble and limestone structure. In this open-air theater, the Romans entertained themselves through games, hunting and fighting. The Colosseum was not only a showcase for bloody movements, but also the system of pulleys, ramps and trapdoors designed to enhance the abilities of animals and gladiators. Among all the monumental buildings in Rome, the Colosseum in Rome is breathtaking! It was once the place where the gladiators fought, the prisoners and the hungry lions fought, and the great symbol of the eternal Rome.
The British historian Beda Venerabilis once wrote: "When the Colosseum stands, Rome will exist; when the Colosseum collapses, Rome will perish." The Colosseum was made by Emperor Vespasian, built on the site of the tyrant Nero's magnificent Dumus Aurea, which was completed in 80 AD. But with the decline of the Roman Empire in the 6th century AD, the Colosseum was gradually abandoned and became overgrown. In the following years, the Colosseum was damaged by the earthquake for several times, and even became the place where builders collect stones and marbles. Now there is only the skeleton left in the Colosseum, but you can still see the style of the old days. The Colosseum under different lights throughout the day has different colors and is very beautiful. At present, the Roman government installed night lights in the Colosseum, making the Colosseum at night very beautiful. And visitors who like photography will definitely love this place. Don't forget to take pictures at night. Opposite the Colosseum is the Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum. Tickets are included in the Colosseum's coupon. They are the pilgrimage sites of history fans and archaeological fans, the glory of the ancient Roman Empire, one of the seven new wonders of the world, the place where gladiators and hungry lions struggled, and the great symbol of the eternal city of Rome. It is a masterpiece and miracle in the history of architecture, the only remaining four-story Colosseum in the world
