Rome, Italy
5 / 5
The main arena of Ancient Rome, a theater for gladiatorial battles, the persecution of prisoners by wild animals and other equally bloody performances of the annual Games of the capital of the Empire. In honor of the opening of the Colosseum in 80 CE Great Games were organized, which lasted more than 3 months. The ancient stones of the Arena still remember the gladiators killed for the fun of the public and torn to pieces for the pleasure of slaves from the captured provinces.

Really a very nice place. We were there with a school class and came in with a short wait. Inside it is breathtaking. However, it is easy to get lost, because it is not really well signposted. Nevertheless, a visit there is definitely worth it.
