This is the largest but not the only amphitheatre of the Roman Empire (there were about 250 
; I saw one in El Jam, Tunisia).
It was built in 80 AD.
ISO 450, 50mm, f/1.4, 1/80s.
The Colosseum is amazing. Unfortunately, two thirds have been destroyed as a result of both plunder and natural disasters. 
ISO 1400, 50mm, f/1.4, 1/80s.
The Altare della Patria, a monument built in honour of Victor Emmanuel, the first king of a united Italy.

A tree near Roma Termini.
ISO 1600, 50mm, f/1.4, 1/50s.
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. 
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
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). 
There could be even 50,000 spectators, but most were only given 40cm wide seats and 70cm of legroom.

Finally, my beautiful mum posing patiently near Piazza di Sant'Onofrio.
