Attractions in Rome ...

Rome, the capital city of Italy is also fourth-most populous city in the European Union. From the wonders of the Colosseum to the hidden secrets of San Clemente and the astonishing Palatine Hill, Rome is packed with incredible historic places. With a legacy that girth over 2,000 years of history - and such legends from the history as Julius Caesar, Augustus and Constantine once ambling its streets - the eternal city has sparkling historic attractions around every corner.

The Colosseum of Rome
The Colosseum, the most famous historic sites in Rome was once the largest amphitheatre in history of Rome, capacity up to 55,000 people, where gladiators, animals and criminals alike fought for their lives; the Colosseum remains a world famous, iconic symbol of the Roman Empire. It was built by Emperor Vespasian in 80 AD. Even today one can see men dressed in gladiatorial costume as you walk between the Colosseum and the nearby Arch of Constantine, built in 315 AD. On Sundays, the Via dei Fori Imperiali leading to the Colosseum is closed to traffic so it's a great place for a stroll if one doesn't mind the memento vendors.
