The Vatican Museums display works from the immense collection built up by the Popes throughout the centuries including some of the most renowned classical sculptures and most important masterpieces of Renaissance art in the world.
The Sistine Chapel, with its ceiling decorated by Michelangelo and the Stanze della Segnatura decorated by Raphael, is located on the route through the Vatican Museums.
Situated in the centre of the city and built in the 70-80 AD, the Colosseum of Rome is without a doubt the most renowned symbol of Rome all over the world. It hosted fights between gladiators and held public spectacles such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. Under the arena of the Colosseum were numerous corridors and rooms used for housing the gladiators and the ferocious beasts that could be brought to the centre of the arena thanks to a series of elevators and ramps. Built of concrete and stone, it is the largest amphitheatre ever built and could approximately hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators.
The valley of the Forum, nestled between the seven hills of Rome, was in ancient times marshy lake where waters from the surrounding hills drained. After the drainage of the marshes, from the end of the seventh century B.C., the Roman Forum was constructed and this served as the center of public life in Rome for over a millennium.
