Sunday Snapshot: The Colosseum

Even if you have not seen it in person, you have heard about it. The Colosseum is the largest amphitheatre in the world and one of Rome’s most famous sights. A lasting example of ancient Roman architecture, the Colosseum was used for public processions, executions, re-enactments and most famously, gladiator battles. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this iconic symbol of ancient Rome was one of my favorite attractions in Europe and one that I would love to return to!

    Bridget, I love the Colosseum. When I was there it was mid June and 95 degrees. I thoroughly enjoyed the historical significance of it. It is so nice to read more about it now because it brings me back to when I was there.
