The Colosseum and ancient Rome go hand in hand. You cannot mention one and leave out the other. Standing east of the Roman Forum, this enormous amphitheater was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian of the Flavian around 70 AD. It was a gift to the people, a tool to keep the masses busy and happy. Roman emperors used it to feature all sort of fun games including gladiator battler as wild animal fights. After around four centuries of active use, it fell into neglect. Partly destroyed by an earthquake, partly because of the political and societal changes of the time. In any case, the remaining rubble of the fallen facade became a source of building materials for many new buildings in Rome.
Even if in ruin today, it was the largest amphitheater Romans ever built. The exterior had three levels of arched entrances and each level feature columns of a different style. The bottom level displayed simple Doric order, the middle followed with the Ionic order, and the upper level showcased Corinthian order. The building could fit over fifty-thousand spectators!! That's an impressive number!
