Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

Amazing. one can picture it being used in Ancient times. The lines to get in look daunting but move quickly. Buy timed tickets for entry.

We visited the coliseum after visiting the forum, it was a bit overcrowded and we didn’t do the guided tour but it is worth going in! The palatine hill / imperial forum is far more interesting if you are into your history. We felt there...More

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
