February 2, 2010 – The Amphitheatre Flavio, Rome

The Coliseum built on the order of the Imperator Vespasiano in the honour of the grandiosity of his empire, was inaugurated by his son, Tito, in 80 after Christ with celebrations 100 days long.

This is a real amphitheatre because it is oval. It is made from TWO theatres facing each other, thus “amphi” (Greek, “both”) + “theatre.”
