Full description
Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum is one of the most famous monuments in the world. Opened to the public with a solemn inauguration that lasted 100 days, it was used for gladiatorial fights (murena), wild animal hunts (venationes) and, with the arena filled with water, simulated sea battles (naumachiae). Built where there had been an artificial lake of the Nerone’s Domus Aurea, it had a capacity for approximately 73,000 people with a large awning (velarium) which protected the spectators from the sun and the rain.  It’s 2,000 years old, but the Colosseum remains a symbol of the Eternal City. The Palatine, with the development of Rome and the continued embellishment of the Forum, due to its close proximity to the seat of power, became a fashionable place to live and the most exclusive neighborhood where  emperors and patrician families built opulent palaces. The Roman Forum was for centuries the center of Roman public and  economic life, where the most important structures of the ancient city were located.
