The Colosseum in Rome is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. This ancient gladiatorial arena in Italy has about 50,000 seats. With a beautiful architecture, it gives a glimpse of the atmosphere when the gladiators used to fight with animals and also with each other. The whole structure has deep roots with underground complexes. These underground complexes are called hypogeum and were used to keep the caged animals.

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the place was started in AD 80 for the very first time. However, the construction was started by Emperor Vespasian in a time around AD 69 to 79. After his death, his son Titus ensured the completion of the structure. The inauguration games were held to celebrate, during which more than 5000 animals were killed.

The first level includes the reserved places for emperors. Then, there is second level is for the noble families of Rome. After that, the stairs are there that were used for the more than 50,000 members of the public.
