Emperor Vespasian, founder of the Flavian Dynasty, built the Colosseum as a gift to the citizens of Rome 2,000 years ago. The construction of the Colosseum began in 72 A.D. and lasted roughly 8 years, according to numerous sources. Emperor Nero had previously used this location for his Domus Aurea, a magnificent imperial palace with gardens, artificial lakes, and canals. With its towering elliptical layers that rise to 180 ft (55 m) from the city’s core, the Colosseum raises its head high.
The Flavian Amphitheatre, widely known as the Roman Colosseum, is the world’s most famous ancient site. Thousands of gladiatorial fights, simulated naval battles, executions, and animal hunts took place in the Colosseum many years ago.
