Hypogeum

Hypogeum
The hypogeum of the Colosseum. The architect of the Colosseum is unknown, but we do know that the structure is a masterpiece of engineering. Some of the foundations are 12-13 metres deep. [1]
When the Colosseum opened, there was a sea-fight staged there in about one metre of water - at that time the amphitheatre had no basement that you can see in this picture.
ISO 200, 11mm, f/2.8, 1/640s.

Clouds over Colosseum

Clouds over Colosseum
There was an inner fence on the arena to ensure that the action was in everyone's view (the gladiators couldn't get too close to the walls surrounding the arena). [1]
There could be even 50,000 spectators, but most were only given 40cm wide seats and 70cm of legroom.
