The Metro organization inwards Rome is simple.  They produce non cause got many lines.

We got the Colosseum quite easily.  There was a delineate of piece of job for the tickets, but it moved rather quickly.

This was likely what the Colosseum looked like, 2,000 years ago.  I read that the Colosseum could topographic point 50,000 spectators.  That time, alone men attended, I think.
