Book the tickets

The Flavian Amphitheater, known as the Colosseum, is one of the symbols of Rome and Italy in the world and is visited every year by millions of people who want to learn more about its history.

Still in excellent condition, it is the largest amphitheater in the world offering a splendid view of Rome and a beautiful overview of the interior spaces of the monument.

It was built in the 1st century AD. in the archaeological heart of Rome during the reign of the Flavian dynasty. Inside there were shows of great appeal such as hunts and gladiator games.
After the abolition of these games, the amphitheater underwent a slow decline until it became a quarry for materials used for the construction of St. Peter's Basilica or a shelter for animals before attracting writers and artists who began excavations and restorations.
