Colosseum

Today Colosseum is perhaps the most famous amphitheatre in the world. When the arean was built under Emperor Vespasian, it was called the Flavian amphitheatre. The monumental Roman Colosseum was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980 and currently welcomes visitors who can enjoy spectacular views of the city of Rome. Although parts of its original marble facade were stolen to construct buildings such as St. Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum remains remarkably intact.
