Exterior shot from the Colosseum, perhaps the most iconic building in Rome. This amphitheatre (also known as Flavian Amphitheatre) was built 70-80 A.D. by emperor Vespasian and Titus (with additional work done under the following emperor, Domitian). The Colosseum is still an imposing building, although it has been robbed of quite a lot of its materials and has been damaged by earthquakes. It once could hold more than 50,000 spectators and is the largest amphitheatre in the world.
