Continuing our monthly theme of the Seven Wonders of the World; UITV connect is in Rome eating Pizza. As our tradition let us discuss some of the movies that were shot in this beautiful place. Roman holiday, I solitiignoti, La Dolce Vita, The Talented Mr Ripley, Angels and Demons are few examples and many such movies which are not mentioned in the list.
When we talk about holidays in Italy, usually we mean in Rome. And when someone comes to Rome, what’s the first thing they think of? The Roman Colosseum, the symbol of the Eternal City and of the whole of Italy. Well, Bollywood has loved this place since a decade to shoot some of the most beautiful romantic numbers ever.
This place unlike the other two has got a whole history attached to it. Because of the rush it is guided to buy your tickets online because this place is filled with thousands of spectators from across the world. If not buy it from the Famous Palatine hill.
The Colosseum is a massive structure, the largest amphitheater of the Roman Empire and in the world today. Being able to seat close to 50,000 spectators, it was the premier venue for wild beast shows and bloody gladiator combat. During the inauguration games (that lasted 100 days and nights) about 5000 wild animals were slaughtered. Rhinos, crocodiles, bears, elephants, lions, tigers and giraffes were victims of the animal hunt shows that took place in the Colosseum.
To understand better about the history of the place as we did so I recommend you to join the travelers group along with the guide. They give a brief knowledge about each sculpture which you will be enticed to explore. The colosseum usually starts at 8:30 am and it is recommended to visit as early as possible because it may get too heated and there will be too much crowd to increase your heat.
For those who considered forgoing the Colosseum when they heard the words “go early,” the Colosseum is equally impressive at night. Viator offers a variety of options similar to those available during the day, but these will allow the night-owls of the world to sleep in and still see all that the city has to offer. There are few cafe which are open till 2 am. So enjoy your visit to this mesmerizing place.
