Colosseum, Rome, Italy

Rome is art, history and beauty at the same time. You may wander around places where the foundation of modern society took place, you may enjoy the many historical buildings still in place, you may get lost inside the incredible Vatican Museums (of course, you will find there many tourists looking for the Sixtine Chapel).

The Colosseum is one of those incredible places where you can travel back in time and feel as if you were watching the gladiators fight in front of you. Completed by Titus, he used it to make the people forget about his bad results in war, celebrating its construction with a full hundred days of festivity.

If you like Ancient Rome, do not miss the chance to visit the reconstruction shown in Google Earth.
