Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome Italy

Stadiums all around the world are designed after this building, the Colosseum. Let’s go check it out.
This place is even more massive than I ever could have dreamed. I’m told that about fifty to eighty thousand people were in this stadium all cheering on their favorite gladiator. And the floor was made out of sand. And the sand was used to absorb the blood.

So not only did the gladiators fight themselves to the death, there were animals involved and they were all held down here under the arena and they had trap doors that would shoot them up onto the arena floor and they would battle to the death. So I just got my cheap seats. I’m way up here, fourth level with all the women. That’s where all the women sat.

It’s crazy to think that this place has been around for 2,000 years and it still stands today right in the heart of Rome. Not only does this tour include the Colosseum, it also includes the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill.
