Roman Forum and Colosseum tour



The Roman Forum was for centuries the center of Roman public life: the place for triumphal procession; the square for elections and public speeches commemorating the city's great men; the venue for commercial affairs and trails.

The Colosseum, or the Flavian Amphitheatre, it's a huge stadium built in only 8 years that could accommodate up to 70 thousand spectators. It was used to host gladiatorial shows as well as criminal executions and animal hunts. Nowadays, it is one of the most visited monuments in Italy and the symbol of Rome.The Guide:
