The most striking landmark of Rome is the Colosseum, which personifies the might and grandeur of the Roman Empire, were the main arena for spectacular bloody fights was located. By the way, not everyone was afraid to fight on the arena of the Colosseum, some were ready to swap places with slaves and officially recognize themselves dead to participate in the bloody battle. They were not always men, women of the Roman Empire sometimes joined the struggle with lions and bulls.
