Italy, The Colosseum in Rome
Almost everyone has heard of the Colosseum in Rome as it is often discussed in History during school. The emperor known as Vespasian began construction of this incredible amphitheatre around 70 AD and it was not completed until 80AD, when Titus was ruler.
Originally designed to hold over 80,000 spectators, the Colosseum was the site of several gladiator contests, executions, re-enactments, and theatrical performances. Despite having suffered severe damage from earthquakes and weather, the Colosseum is still one of the most visited tourist attractions in all of Rome. The best peak time for tourists to travel is May, September and October.
