The building used to be a venue for gladiator fights, hunting simulations involving ferocious and exotic animals and similar activities. The Colosseum is also known for its complex, stunning and advanced architecture, most of which is still intact considering the site being used as a pit for building materials at various points in history. Due to its capacity of 73,000 spectators, a ticket system was used to regulate the entrance to the Colosseum.
Visiting the Colosseum today is to be reminded of just how “modern” people were in Ancient Rome. It is a living proof of the stunning architecture and strong masonry of the ancient world, and has served as a model for stadiums around the world. This reservation allows you to go directly to the dedicated entrance of the Roman Forum to exchange your voucher with the entrance ticket.
