Colosseum, Rome

DSC_0981

When you are in Rome there is one major tourist attraction which you must visit, the Colosseum. It was originally an amphitheatre and was used for many battles among/between animals, man and animal and men. There were many Christians who got brutally killed there before Rome was a Christian state. Within this amphitheatre there were many “lifts” where animals were brought up from the underground passage to ground level for battles. Wow! Given the lack of technology in the past, it is amazing.

For tourists, it is interesting to know that this majestic building was built during AD 70 – 72! Wow. You probably need less than an hour to walk around this site and read the exhibits displayed. I love visiting ancient ruins!

Just around the corner of Colosseum, you will see the Roman Forum. What is left is a few of these structures and many rocks and bits and pieces of buildings which looks like huge rocks. Haha. At one of the rocks, many flowers were being thrown in there, it was where the public burning of Julius Cesar took place.
