I’m told that about 50,000-80,000 people were in this stadium, all cheering on their favorite gladiator. And the floor was made out of sand, and the sand was used to absorb the blood. So, not only did the gladiators fight themselves to the death, there were animals involved, and they were all held down here under the arena. And they had trap doors that would shoot them up onto the arena floor, and they would battle to the death. So, I just got my cheap seats. I’m way up here, fourth level with all the women. That’s where the women sat, and I figure that’s a good place to sit, right? ‘Cause back in the day, people would look out over this and they’d see chariots and all the old structures still intact. This post, you see civilization, but it is still beautiful. It’s crazy to think that this place has been around for 2,000 years, and it still stands today right in the heart of Rome. The Colosseum definitely lived up to all my expectations and more! This place is a must-see.
