Enjoy this immersive self-guided tour of the Colosseum and discover the history of one of Rome's most famous attractions!

You will learn about the history of the Colosseum, that was originally known as the Flavian Amphiteatre, and will hear about the numerous battles that took place in it during the centuries. You will also discover that the Colosseum was covered in marble that depicted hunting scenes and wild animals. Finally, you will find out about the two staged ship battles, known as naumachia, that took place inside the Colosseum which was flooded for the occasion.
