If you come to Rome, you can't miss the Colosseum. It is one of the most, if not the most, iconic Roman monument still standing today. On this tour with Sara, we will focus on the history and archaeology of the spectacular amphitheatre, also known as the Flavian amphitheatre. Built in 72 a.d by the Flavian family and completed in only 8 years by the Jewish slaves, it was a real stadium dedicated to the gladiatorial fights, animal hunts and public executions. Although it is not possible to go inside of the Colosseum, Sara will show you this main symbol of Rome and its imposing construction that, with almost 2,000 years of history, will bring you back in time to discover the way of life in the Roman Empire. Join us in this wonderful journey back in time!

Such a hot day for for Sara while we all sat comfortably and relaxed in our own homes. But Sara gave us so much information we were able to understand so much more about this iconic building. Sara's English is excellent. Dare I suggest worm and warm checked? Such a little thing, and made me smile!
