When in Rome: Day 4- The Colosseum

The Colosseum is pretty much exactly as you expect: epic in size, and an incredible feat of engineering (especially considering it is over 2,000 years old!). It's also a short 10 minute walk from our hotel, which was a huge plus. :)

There is a small bit of a reconstructed floor which gives you a sense of the original floor and the subterranean warren where animals were held.

The Colosseum could hold 50,000 fans. Seriously - it's HUGE!
