THE COLOSSEUM

BEST PRESERVED MONUMENT OF ROMAN EMPIRE

Although it seems circular, the Colosseum is an oval-shaped Flavian Amphitheater, 50 meters high, 189 meters long, and 156 meters wide. The outer wall was damaged by several earthquakes, and as a consequence of the quake in 1349, the entire south side collapsed. Despite numerous damages caused as the result of the earthquake, fire, neglect, and stone-robbers, the Colosseum and its Arena Floor are still the iconic symbols of Rome. Therefore it is listed as one of the 7 Wonders of the World. Read more about when and how Colosseum was built or Colosseum history.

INSIDE THE COLOSSEUM’S TIMELESS WALLS

The construction of the Colosseum began under Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian dynasty around 70-72 AD, marking a defining moment in Roman architectural history. The opening of the Colosseum was celebrated with 100 days of games, showcasing its grandeur. Originally designed to host gladiatorial contests, this iconic amphitheater’s role extended far beyond such games. It was an entertainment hub where up to 50,000 spectators could witness a range of events, from public executions and dramas based on Classical mythology to reenactments of famous battles.

Over the centuries, the Colosseum has faced both glory and challenges. In the 18th century, Pope Benedict XIV consecrated the site in memory of the Christian martyrs believed to have died there, giving it a new layer of historical significance. Today, the Colosseum stands as a powerful symbol of the Roman Empire and its lasting impact on world history.
