Things to see
The Colosseum offered different kinds of entertainment to the Roman people such as animal fights, hunts of wild animals such as lions and tigers, gladiator fights, and reconstructions of different battles, including naval battles. Said naval battles were permitted due to the ingenious machinery which brought water inside the Colosseum.
The Colosseum is listed as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Unfortunately, its structure suffers from bad weather, pollution and time. The parts of its walls that are missing and which give it its famous silhouette were taken away during the Middle Age to build other buildings, such as Saint Peter’s Basilica. In other words, Saint Peter’s Basilica was built with stones originating from the Colosseum!
