The Colloseum in rome is the largest amphitheatre ever build in the roman empire. It took about eight years to build it and even nearly 2000 years later it is still crowded with people to watch its beauty.
It was originally build to entertain up to 50.000 people with gladiatorial battles, sea battles, animal hunts, executions and dramas. Today people come here to look at what is left of this masterpiece of architecture.
It took us 30 minutes and a few euros for a ticket to get in, but it is absolutly worth it. This building is amazing and huge.
Huge, yeah that can be a problem. How to catch “huge” in a photo? I tried to do that by showing it all. My only chance to do so was using the fisheye.
If you look at the photos you will notice that this building is full of people, but they are so small that they nearly disapear in this giant arena.
