Time-lapse Rome - Colosseum

Visit the Colosseum with our live cam in Rome, Italy!

Also known as Anfiteatro Flavio, the "Colosseo" (or Coliseum) is an elliptical amphitheater in stone and concrete, located in the center of Rome. Home to events like the infamous gladiatorial games, the Colosseum was the largest amphitheater in the ancient Roman Empire.
Emperor Vespasian started its construction in 72 A.D. to replace the artificial lake in Nero's Domus Aurea. The inaugural celebrations, held under Emperor Titus, involved the killing of 5000 wild animals brought from Africa. Festivities lasted an astonishing 100 days!
With the fall of Rome, construction material was collected from existing buildings, including the Colosseum, which is why the same appears to be partially bare. In 2006, the Colosseum was listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.
