Wow....was the first expression that comes out of your mouth when you see this structure. Brilliantly conceived and was executed to the perfection. The though process and the architecture simply takes you to an era which you want to live in for once. As soon as you enter the colosseum you start dreaming about the era it takes you to and that's the sheer charm of the place. Although most of it is destroyed in an earthquake but the governments have done well to restore it or else we would have missed something really special.
