The Colosseum, also famous as Flavian Theater, is the largest amphitheater of the Roman world: it could hold 50000 people! It's located along the Via dei Fori Imperiali and it's the main symbol of the Eternal City. The Emperor Vespasian started to build it in 72 Ad, while Titus concluded the work a decade later. For 450 years it hosted fights between gladiators or against wild animals (like lions, elephants, bears and tigers, this exhibition was called "venationes") for the enjoyment of the inhabitants of the "Urbe".
Did you know the "Naumachie"? It was a fabulous spectacle, a real naval combat in the arena, filled with water for the occasion. Under the arena were many corridors and rooms used for housing men and ferocious beasts. If you have only one day to visit the Italian Capital, it's a "must to see", specially at night: one of the most romantic view of the town!
