As one of the few mostly intact structures from the Roman Empire, the Colosseum stands today as a monument to ancient Rome's architectural and engineering prowess. It is also a major source of tourism revenue for the Italian government. In 2018 the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill together brought in more than $63.3 million (€53.8 million), the highest revenue of any tourist attraction in Italy.

Come to the nightmare of Rome,
the remains of the city, telling the glory of the old days,
swimming in the city, and even can not tell whether they are in the past, or now.

The Colosseum may be the most famous landmark in all of Rome. It was built in 80 AD and was once the site of many gladiator battles to the death, and prisoners fended off hungry lions. The Colosseum consists of four floors in total (including the basement), however only part of the ground floor and second floor are currently open to the public. The first floor offers a view of the maze-like buildings in the center of the Colosseum that were once part of the basement of the structure. They were once the homes of the beasts and gladiators that would be made to fight for the entertainment of the crowds. From the second floor, one can see the interior structure of the Colosseum which is divided into three parts: the arena, the auditorium and the podium. It is also a perfect location for taking unforgettable photos.
