“Colossal Colosseum”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

The history surrounding this structure is so interesting! I implore Italy's government to find a way to preserve this wonder from environmental deterioration.

I wasn't expecting a museum inside the colosseum. It was really informative and just the whole thing was amazing!

“Expect a buzz.”
Reviewed 14 April 2012

Don't come here expecting to be the only couple standing in the middle of this world famous 2000 year old monument that has withheld earthquakes galore!!

This is of course an impressive building that you must see. GET A TOUR. It costs but this way you know what you're looking at. We are poor teachers (aaaawwwhhh) and we got one!)
