Some short facts about the Colosseum before we check out the pictures. The Colosseum is an amphitheater built between 70 and 80 AD. Emperor Vespasian began building and his son Titus finished it. The Colosseum had been fights between wild animals, executions, gladiatorial games and theater here before a large audience, as most 87,000 spectators. Coliseum has a circumference of 524 meters and is 48 meters high. Before we look at the photos, I have a tip for you. If you want to save time and money, they have free admission on the first Sunday of every month, which also means shorter waiting times. 🙂
