2.3 Colosseum

With capacity of over 50,000 spectators, Colosseum was truly a grandeur building engineering success of the Roman Empire. This amphitheatre was used as a venue for performances, mythological dramas, executions and most well-known as a gladiatoral contests area. The wall thickness was ridiculously thick, nothing compared to how buildings are nowadays. 
He went there on a rainy day on his second day in Rome. One thing he dislike about being at amazing tourist places are the notion of knowing, it felt like he knew what he was about to see. However, it was still amazing to see it with his own eyes.
