My trip to Rome is not complete without a visit to the famous Colosseum, made famous by gladiator battles against each other and wild animals.

The best photos are of the exterior vs the interior
Interior remnants; photo taken from the second level
The underground Chambers housed wild animals, theater sets for performances, and the Gladiators
We went just after their 8:30 a.m. opening and only waited about 10 minutes. Had we come later in the day the wait would have been at least one hour
