Top of the list of must-see attractions is the Colosseum, an enduring symbol of the mighty ancient Roman Empire. Completed in 80 AD and boasting an astonishing capacity of 80,000, the amphitheatre was historically used as an arena for bloody gladiator matches, public executions, athletic tournaments and live animal hunts. Today, the Colosseum is open for the public to marvel at and visitors may also explore its eerie network of subterranean tunnels and the attached museum.
Just a stone’s throw from the Colosseum are the ruins of the former Ancient Roman government buildings known as the Roman Forum. The centre of Roman life for centuries and frequented by the likes of Julius Caesar and Cicero, the Forum is today an impressive sprawling archaeological site and one of the city’s most popular attractions.
