The Colosseum, Rome
One of the most immediately recognizable historic buildings in the world and a "must see" attraction for any student groups visiting Rome for History, Religious Studies or general culture.
The Colosseum is located at the foot of Mussolini's Via dei Fori Imperiali, opposite the Colosseo Metro station and originally with about eighty entrances was designed to hold approximately 50,000 spectators. The Roman emperor Vespasian started to build the amphitheatre in 72 A.D. although he died before its completion and so the works were eventually completed by Titus's brother, Domitian.
Guided tours can be arranged that will bring this marvellous structure to life but please be advised it can get very busy at peak times. Contact FHT for prices and details.
