10The Colosseum in Rome, Italy

One of the best-known landmarks in Rome, the Colosseum was built over 2,000 years ago as a gift to the Roman people. Primarily a venue for the infamous Roman games, which included animal hunts and gladiatorial battles, the Colosseum was also used for performances and public entertainment.

With a capacity of up to 80,000 people, the Colosseum is an architectural marvel and is the largest amphitheatre ever built. As impressive as the Colosseum is from the outside, exploring the inside gives you a wonderful perspective of the scale of the stadium and an idea of how the Games would have been run.
