The Colosseum is one of the biggest amphitheaters in Italy and is the second best place to visit in Italy. Whether there’s a show you are planning to watch or not, simply visiting the amphitheater for “picture taking” purposes is a must. It was created more than 2,000 years ago and is one of those places you just have to visit at least once in your life.
