The Real Things, Side by Side
The Roman Colosseum, or Flavian's Amphitheatre, reflects the genius and grandeur of ancient Roman architecture and remains one of Rome's major attractions. Construction on the Colosseum began almost 2,000 years ago during the reign of the Emperor Vespasian in 70 AD. Vespasian never saw the completion of his arena--at the time of his death in 79 AD, construction had reached the third level. The top level was finally finished and inaugurated by Vespasian's son, Titus, in 80 AD. The inaugural games were a spectacle. 9,000 wild animals were slaughtered to the roar of spectators, and the arena was flooded with water to stage mock sea battles. Beside the Roman Colosseum is the Constantine's Arch, a stately arch, 70 feet tall and 84 feet wide. Erected in 315 AD, the arch commemorates Constantine I's victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge. - Travel & Stuff 4 Kids

O Coliseu de Roma, ou Anfiteatro Flaviano, reflete o gênio e a grandiosidade da arquitetura romana antiga e continua sendo uma das principais atrações de Roma. A construção do Coliseu começou há quase 2.000 anos, durante o reinado do Imperador Vespasiano em 70 dC. Vespasiano nunca viu a conclusão de sua arena - no momento da sua morte, em 79 dC, a construção tinha alcançado o terceiro nível. O nível superior foi finalmente concluído e inaugurado pelo filho de Vespasiano, Tito, no ano 80 . Os jogos inaugurais foram um espetáculo. 9.000 animais silvestres foram abatidos para delírio dos espectadores, e a arena foi inundada com água para encenar batalhas navais. Ao lado do Coliseu de Roma encontra-se o Arco de Constantino, um arco majestoso, com 70 metros de altura e 84 metros de largura. Erguido em 315 dC, este arco comemora a vitória de Constantino I, na batalha de Ponte Milvio. - Travel & Stuff 4 Kids
