Roman Colosseum (Italy)
The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD, and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir Titus. Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius). (Source: Wikipedia)
An awesome place to visit, a must for Rome
Be sure to buy your tickets ahead of time and print them out (this is true for most of Rome's historical attractions). You will be able to skip the line and walk straight in, saving you probably at least half an hour. We did a tour and it was amazing. There is so much to see in the Colosseum and so much to learn about the past. We enjoyed seeing and learning about all of the old ruins of the Roman cities and empires.
