The Colosseum

The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, is a huge elliptical structure that was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD. It is located in Rome, Italy, and is slightly east of the Roman Forum. This tremendous four-story structure has 80 entrances and was able to accommodate 55,000 spectators to witness things such as gladiatorial contests, executions, comical acts and heroic feats with animals. Although this immense structure has fallen into ruins, it is still one of the most picturesque and commanding sites in Rome.
