You are able to put yourself in the spot where important events of Roman life occurred. Thousands came to watch things from plays to gladiatorial matches. Being there helps you understand the scale of the place. You can explore the entrances, the arena and even...More

This is just a short drive from downtown and worth it. Climb the sides and explore the underside of this. It requires some climbing and stairs but if you can you should.
