Colosseum

 

After leaving the forum we went for a tour of the Colosseum.  The seating wouldn’t have worked very well today because the ground floor was for royal and government.  The next floor was for the men and the very top is where the slaves and women were allowed to sit.

There were holes all over in Colosseum and David asked where they came from.  He was told people had stolen  the rebar out of the building.  Until the time that the Pope came and put a cross up in the colosseum because of the Christians being killed it was not a religious place.  After that time the church and other organizations started saving it.  We were told that they believe now that the killing of Christians took place at the Circus Maximus.

Enjoy our photos
