VISIT THE COLOSSEUM
This website is dedicated to the Colosseum, the greatest amphitheatre of the Roman empire and still the main landmark of the Eternal City, where it was built almost 2000 years ago by the Flavian emperors.
Here you'll find information and documents on history, architecture and on the games that were held in the amphitheatre, papers and studies on the Colosseum, news on the events at the Colosseum, FAQs, a page of feedback with the most usual questions asked by our readers, like figures and plans, a sitemap and even a page on the cats of the arena. Use the menu on top for an easy navigation.
