The Colosseum in Rome, Italy, is the largest amphitheatre in the world. It was built centuries ago and still stands tall today, as one of the most amazing pieces of architecture ever envisioned. The Colosseum is in ruins though, and when you go to visit, you have to get a good guide who will tell you stories of all the spectacles that were held there, as the only real form of entertainment in Ancient Rome. Your guide will take you up the stairs and ask you to imagine the floor of the colosseum, on top of the maze of gullies and passageways you will see at your feet.

Starting November 2017, visitors will get a new point of view. The top levels of the Colosseum will be open for the first time in 40 years! Workers have been making sure the area is strong enough and safe enough for tourists to visit. These spots high up, were the ‘nose-bleeds’, or the ‘cheap seats’!  But they offer priceless views that will now be open for you to experience. As Dario Franceschini the Italian culture minister says,  “It is an incredible view. The visitors will remember it as one of the most beautiful things they have seen.”

Take a look at these slides to get a flavour of how the Colosseum was such an important part of peoples lives in Ancient Rome.
