At the end of Fori Imperiali, stands the amphitheater of Flavian commonly called the Colosseum, place for spectacular and bloody fights between the gladiators and then lions. The visit to the world’s biggest amphitheater starts from the ground floor, here you can admire the perfectly kept dungeons.The tour will tell you everything about the gladiators, the immense public that supported them (just like we support the basketball or football stars), the historical evolution and the architectural aspect of the monument.
Finally we will get to the upper levels for a complete view of the Colosseum, till we will reach the terrace of Giuseppe Valadier, built in 1823. From this very high point of view, thanks to the perfect illumination you will be amazed by the breathtaking sight of the arch of Costantino and Fori Imperiali. Useless to say that a “selfie” is a must!
