1/10 The Collosseum

Why go? No visit to Rome would be complete without a visit to the Colosseum, Italy’s most famous amphitheatre and the largest in the world.

Activities: Grab yourself an experienced guide for a gruesome history lesson: children love to hear stories of gory battles between gladiators, animals, slaves and prisoners. The sheer scale of this fabulous iconic structure is one thing, the history it embodies something altogether different. The Colosseum regularly hosts exhibitions on the theme of ‘Ancient’ and ‘Modern.’
