Wow!! I have dreamt of visiting the Forum & Colosseum in Rome since I was a small child and this was definitely ticked off my bucket list. We took a tour with a wonderful lady by the name of Zander who was so knowledgeable. If we had undertaken this by ourselves we would have missed so much about this historical place.
The Forum was built at the end of the 7th Century BC and was considered the centre of Rome. This is where the first parliaments developed.
Construction of the Colosseum begun around 7 AD and could house approx 50,000 people. It was a place of battle where humans and beasts battled each other for death and glory. The even filled the place up with water and staged sea battles in it.
TIP – you must begin with the Forum and finish with the Colosseum.
