Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives. 

Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside. 

Colosseum admission fee:
Full ticket - €18.00
EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25) 
EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18)

Opening hours:
Mid February - mid March: 9 AM - 4.30 PM
Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM
End March - end August: 9 AM - 7.00 PM
End August - end Sept.: 9 AM - 6.30 PM
End Sept. - end October: 9 AM - 6.00 PM

  1. Gladiator's, that is a place the hubby would love to visit! I wish I could visit it in person too....blessed week to you, :)

  2. Great information and picture.

  3. Wow! This is very beautiful Colosseum Sis :-) I only see this in the movie and you are lucky indeed! coz you can see and explore it live :-) Thank you for sharing this beautiful picture to BPC

  4. We didn't have the chance to go in bec the line was super long when we visited. It was summer so the throngs of tourists were doubled. The weather wasn't pleasant too so we didn't bother.

    It's great that you manage to set foot inside of one of the most historical and also oldest structure in the world.

  5. I would love to see this place some day :) My sister went there the other year. Thanks for the info :)

  6. A place that my wife dreams to see. Hope I can get her there. a very historic Roman architecture.

  7. This reminds me of the movie that hubby and I watched last month!

  8. Yeah, I watched Gladiator with hubby and it is very interesting that it makes me want to visit this place too.

    I wish we can get the chance to see this battle ground in person :)

  9. YAY! From the photo itself, I can tell it's one cool historic Colosseum, Len. I wonder what it looks like inside :-)

  10. oh, one of the best places I would love to go..wish to visit this place someday.

  11. my friend just visited this place and she said she enjoyed it a lot because it is quieter, and therefore, she had so much time to compose her pictures. hopefully, i could see this sometime too.

  12. Wow! I love to see that in person maybe someday or in my dream na lang.

  13. I haven't had the chance to step into a real gladiators' battleground. This must have been quite an experience.

  14. Would definitely love to visit this place!

    One of the great architecture of the old times but lots of blood spilled for mere entertainment. I am glad that we are not that brutal now but it somehow evolved to a different level like in boxing and MMA that people still get hurt for entertainment.

  15. wow, this reminds me of the movie "Gladiator". What a must-see place in the world, indeed. Here for bpc!

  16. Oh how I wish I could be near this place someday!

  17. wow! glad to know that you have memories of the historic spots on earth...

  18. this is one of the most amazing structures in the world. so full of history. thanks for sharing this pic in BPC!

  19. That's a majestic capture; thanks for sharing it! It is my dream to be able to step foot on that spot someday! :)

    BPC hop!

  20. That was probably the one of the best experience and travel being in that historical place. nice picture.
