Rome, Italy - Roman Coliseum Panoramic Picture

SKU: ROMC
This panoramic photograph of the Roman Coliseum was taken by James Blakeway. The Coliseum is one of Rome's most visited tourist attractions. When the Coliseum was completed in 80 A.D., the opening was celebrated with 100 days of games. It sat over 50,000 spectators, was over 160 feet high and had eighty entrances. Public events such as gladiator fights and wild animal hunts were held with professional fighters, volunteers or people who were captured to fight. The gladiator fights were held until 404 A.D., and for much of that time, according to tradition, Christians were thrown to the beasts.

Roman Coliseum Panoramic Pictures

Although nearly 2,000 years old, panoramic pictures of the Roman Coliseum capture one of the most recognizable constructions of the Roman Empire that continues to be the largest amphitheater in the world. Although part of the facade in Coliseum panoramas is missing in the landmark today, this iconic symbol of Imperial Rome has captured the imagination of people for thousands of years to be considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

While used for entertainment and gladitorial contests in its early years, the site in Roman Coliseum panoramic images has had many uses over time. These purposes include public housing, trade and educational workshops, the site operations for varying religious sects, and a fortress, among others.
