The Colosseum is a massive ancient amphitheater in the center of Rome. Picked apart by scavengers, ravaged by earthquakes and time, the Colosseum still stands as an impressive symbol of life in Ancient Rome, the power of the emperors, and the durability of the Eternal City.
This huge marble and limestone structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators, all there to revel in the various forms of (mostly violent) entertainment, such as hunts, gladiator battles, and executions.
