Here we are at the Coliseum, “theater” built in the Roman Empire. When I came to Rome when I was in college, we visited this site. Nearly 15 years later, it was like in my memories!

The building was unfortunately poorly maintained but we can easily imagine the immensity of the building. The bleachers are gone but you can still imagine the 50,000 Roman spectators, easy if you have the images of the movie Gladiator in head … Yes I know I have very very popular references!

We got lucky, between the rain and the late hour at which we arrived at the site, there were very few people. We could easily walk through the site, circling the arena and climbing stages.
