Italy is known for its amazing history, beautiful historical monuments, museums, and many other sightseeing places. If you ask people about their preferred destination for a summer holiday, you will hear most of them saying Italy. Because people are curious about the history and they are curious about knowing the historical, unknown facts about the historical places. And Italy has historical places in large numbers. 

Rome Colosseum is the best example of that, the iconic arena was built between 70AD - 80AD. And since then the Arena has been used for many purposes like it has been the host for gladiators fight, has been used as a prison, a place for public executions, also used as a graveyard and praying area as well. But the main reason for which people visit is the turf on which gladiators used to fight. The
fight sometimes used to be between the gladiators and animals also. People used to gather in this huge arena to see the fights. Fighters from all around were brought here as slaves and were forced to fight for their lives. Around 80000 spectators would gather in the arena to view the fight. 

The arena has an underground path that leads to a bridge connecting Arena to the prison. The bridge is known as the death bridge because dead bodies were used to carry from the arena to prison via this bridge only. 

Another important thing which you need to remember is that you should always book a Colosseum Underground tour in advance because it gets really crowded during the season and people face problems in getting tickets at the time of entrance. So remember this will help you save your time and money as well.
