Italy by Rail and Ship: The Colosseum

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

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
