Visit the Colosseum, where the gladiators fought to the death while their life hung by a thread. Their destiny was completely in the hands of the emperor.
Their destiny was completely in the hands of the emperor or of the mood of the crowd and in the famous amphitheater they would fight with all their might to win the crowd’s favour.
Your tour of the Colosseum will start with a brief historical introduction of the area, as your guide explains the history of the monument in the context of the geographical position and its historical periods: from the Neronian fire at the Domus Aurea, the remains of which are seen in front of the Colosseum, to the policy of the Flavian emperors with the construction of the amphitheater; you’ll then hear about the Middle Ages and the earthquake that destroyed part of the building, forever changing the Colosseum’s shape. Your guide will then focus on the exterior of the building, explaining about and pointing out techniques and materials used, including details of the velarium that gave shade to the spectators in the summer.
