The Colosseum may be the most famous landmark in all of Rome. It was built in 80 AD and was once the site of many gladiator battles to the death, and prisoners fended off hungry lions. The Colosseum consists of four floors in total (including the basement), however only part of the ground floor and second floor are currently open to the public. The first floor offers a view of the maze-like buildings in the center of the Colosseum that were once part of the basement of the structure. They were once the homes of the beasts and gladiators that would be made to fight for the entertainment of the crowds. From the second floor, one can see the interior structure of the Colosseum which is divided into three parts: the arena, the auditorium and the podium. It is also a perfect location for taking unforgettable photos.

The history of the Capitoline Museums can be traced back to 1471, at that time Pope Sixtus IV donated a precious bronze statue to the people of Rome, which was temporarily stored on Capitoline Hill. It was Michelangelo who carried out the design and renovation of these 3 buildings, as the buildings were completed one by one, donated works were placed in the buildings, as a museum open to the public. Later, Ancient Roman statues, inscriptions, coins, drawings, and other precious objects were continuously collected and were placed on exhibition in the museum. The current building was designed by Michelangelo, and has been in existence for 400 years. The museum is divided into 3 buildings and displays a large quantity of Roman statues, inscriptions, as well as Medieval and Renaissance era gems, coins, paintings, and more. Many of these are priceless treasures. The greatest treasure of the museum is the She-Wolf bronze statue that was made by the Etruscans before the 5th century BCE, and since 1473 has always been kept in the Palazzo dei Conservatori collection. The twins beneath the She-Wolf were added by the Renaissance Italian sculptor Antonio del Pollaiolo, this composite statue has become the symbol of the city of Rome.

The obelisk towering over the entrance to Pantheon in the Piazza della Rotonda was originally from Ancient Egypt. The Romans installed it on a carved fountain base, and has a crucifix at its top. The complicated and superimposed appearance of this perfectly symbolizes the atmosphere of the pantheon. The Pantheon was once said by Michelangelo to be a design made by angels. The portico of the Pantheon features classical Greek columns, and the inside space is broad and vast, creating the sense that one is inside a perfect sphere. The only source of life surprisingly comes from the ceiling skylight. No matter how many times I visit, I will always lift up my head to look at the ray of light that emanates from the center of the hemispherical dome.
