Best for History - Expert review of Colosseum
Built under the first two Flavian emperors, Vespasian and Titus, Rome’s most famous landmark was inaugurated in AD 80. It’s an extraordinary engineering feat: the marshy site meant that foundations 15 metres deep were needed; and its efficiency as a stadium that was able to fill up or empty its over 50,000 seats in around 10 minutes was not matched until the 20th century.
Full admission is 12 euros and 7.50 euros for concessions. EU citizens under 18 and over 65 are free.
