In the center of Rome, Italy there lies a huge amphitheater called the Colosseum. It is one of the most impressive ancient structures in the world. It has been around since the year 80 C.E. making the structure 1933 years old. When the Colosseum was still in use, gladiators fought their matches.
While you can’t get the actual experience or atmosphere of the battles that went on at the Colosseum, you can explore the arena where they took place! It is one of the main stops for the millions of tourists that visit Rome every year.
So many interesting things happened in this amazing structure and not all of them had involved animals and Gladiators! Did you know that the Colosseum used to be flooded so that the Romans could watch mock naval battles? They would remove the flooring and flood the arena with 3-5 feet of water.
The Colosseum is truly a unique and historical structure that is worth exploring!
