As one of the most recognisable ancient landmarks anywhere in the world, taking a Colosseum tour is a must for anyone looking to get the most out of their time spent in Rome. Completed in AD 80, the Colosseum offers visitors an endless array of fascinating tales that took place here throughout its extensive history. Best known for its gory gladiatorial battles where up to 50,000 spectators from across the entire spectrum of Rome’s social hierarchy watched fighters and beasts battle it out, the Colosseum also hosted chariot races, theatre performances, large-scale public events and even executions. The enormous amphitheatre is also celebrated as an ancient architectural landmark, with 31 of 80 entrances still standing today.
