THE COLOSSEUM

BEST PRESERVED MONUMENT OF ROMAN EMPIRE

Although it seems circular, the Colosseum is an oval-shaped amphitheater, 50 meters high, 190 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. Collapsed stone was reused for the reconstruction of buildings, palaces, churches, and other buildings all around Rome. 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 new Wonder of the World. Read more about when and how Colosseum was built or Colosseum history.
