The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is the largest amphitheatre built in the Roman Empire with seating for 50,000. With 76 numbered entrances, marble seats, and subterranean passages, this arena is where Emperors and wealthy citizens staged the deadly gladiatorial and wild animal fights.
Of course, you'll also want to see Capitoline Hill, on the opposite side of the Forum from the Colosseum. One of the most famous and highest of the seven hills of Rome, the Capitoline was the site of many famous events in Roman history.
