The Roman Colosseum

We had a chance to visit the Colosseum while visiting the city of Rome, Italy. The Colosseum was selected as one of the 7 wonders in 2007 - representing an impressive monument regarded with awe and wonder. This grand amphitheatre was built by the Roman Empire in the 1st century, and it could seat almost 50,000 spectators in the past. Many gladiatorial combats were held in the Colosseum.
Super classic image

@haskar thanks Haskar - interesting comment you make - I wonder of there's a connection between Rome + the harlot system of the Tower of Babel ...
