The Coliseum or Colosseum is an amphitheater located in the center of the city of Rome. It was famously used as a gladiatorial arena, although over time it became a place for other activities such as executions, ceremonies, dramas, and religious events.

Listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, it is one of Rome’s most popular landmarks to this day, despite its substantially ruined condition, receiving millions of tourists every year.

Originally named Amphitheatrum Flavium, the Coliseum is believed to have been named after a colossal statue of Nero that once stood in its proximity.
