The Colosseum

Eternal icon of imperial Rome, and of modern Italy, the ruins of the Flavian Amphitheater, built by early Roman Emperor Vespasian, still awe. The name Colosseum purportedly comes from a colossal statue of Nero that stood outside the site, which was then transformed into a state of helios, the sun god, reputedly a goodly 100 feet tall.
