What to Expect
Skip the line when you visit the Colosseum and Roman Forum on this 2.5-hour guided walking tour!
Construction on the Colosseum began in 72 A. D. under Emperor Vespasian and was completed 8 years later. For its inauguration, the new Emperor Tito organized games to be held in the new stadium that would last 100 days. You can imagine the excitement of the Roman population at this prospect!
Gladiators and African animals were the centerpiece of the spectacle, and many animals were captured especially for the event. It has been estimated that, during the centuries, over 500,000 people and a million animals lost their lives fighting in the amphitheater.
