Perhaps the most well known landmark in Rome is the Colosseum. Built between 72-80 AD, It's construction was started under the rule of Emperor Vespasian, and completed under the rule of Emperor Titus. The Colosseum, capable of seating 50,000 spectators, was used for gladiatorial battles, along with mock sea and land battles, animal hunts, executions, and dramas. Did you know that the Colosseum appears on the Italian five cent coin.
