Since we were not able to go inside the Colosseum during our walking tour of Rome, we decided to head there after our tour of the Vatican. It was so interesting to see what lies under the platform the gladiators fought on. The Colosseum is also known as the “Flavian Amphitheatre” and is one of the largest in the world.
What people do not talk about is that the Colosseum is just outside of the Roman Forum. I was totally unaware of this area until I arrived to Italy. The tickets we purchased were to see the inside of the Colosseum and a tour of the Roman Forum. More on the Roman Forum on the next post!
