One of the most famous Roman monuments, the Colosseum was built primarily to host gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. The building was originally constructed to hold 50,000 people. While that number was filled at times, most notably during the annual games, the Colosseum often held 70,000 to 80,000 spectators. This success was limited by the fact that the amphitheater was designed primarily to host the games of the Colosseum, and that the amphitheater’s design allowed for very large crowds, but not the sort that would fill the entire structure

The size of the Colosseum was impressive, but what was even more remarkable was the quality of the entertainment that was on offer. The Colosseum was home to some of the most brutal and bloody spectacles in history, including human fights and animal hunts. It is one of the most important historical places in the world.
