The name Colosseum comes from a huge statue of Nero: "The Colossus" 35 meters high, which was located next to the amphitheater now destroyed and is considered one of the most impressive works of the Roman Empire.

Knowing the Colosseum with Rome Tours is possible it was originally formed by slabs of white marble, its elliptical shape capable of containing seventy thousand spectators and a great view of the performances from any position thanks to the slope of the steps.

The entrance to the Colosseum was free for all Roman citizens, the seats were divided according to social status and there were some areas for women. At the top there was a huge tent Velarium flax used to protect the spectators from the sun.
