Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome, Italy


(majestic music) – Stadiums all around the world are designed after this
building, the Colosseum. Let’s go check it out. This place is even more massive than I ever could have dreamed. I’m told that about fifty
to eighty thousand people were in this stadium all cheering on their favorite gladiator. And the floor was made out of sand. And the sand was used to absorb the blood. So not only did the gladiators fight themselves to the death,
there were animals involved and they were all held
down here under the arena and they had trap doors
that would shoot them up onto the arena floor and they
would battle to the death. So I just got my cheap seats. I’m way up here, fourth
level with all the women. That’s where all the women sat. It’s crazy to think that
this place has been around for 2,000 years and it still stands today right in the heart of Rome. Not only does this tour
include the Colosseum, it also includes the Roman
Forum and Palatine Hill. This place is incredible. It’s absolutely stunning. And as you can see around me, there’s a lot of great
history here as well. I am now leaving the Roman Forum, heading up to Palatine Hill. And Palatine, the root is palace, and that is where the emperors lived and there’s beautiful gardens and all sorts of beautiful stuff. Let’s go check it out. And right now I’m standing
right in front of an old stadium where they used to race chariots. I’m so glad I made the
trip out here today. This is definitely a must-see here.
