Description

Best Package: Vatican + Colosseum Tour

VATICAN : The Vatican Museums are located in Viale Vaticano in Rome, inside the Vatican City State. Founded by Pope Julius II in the sixteenth century, they are one of the largest collections of art in the world, as they display the enormous collection of works accumulated over the centuries by the Popes. The most beautiful masterpieces of the artistic and sculptural panorama are divided into 7 km of corridors, making them the fourth most visited museum in the world. The first building of the monumental complex, the Pio-Clementine Museum, was named in honour of the two founding popes. It all began with the discovery of the Apollo Belvedere and with the discovery of the Laocoön group, Clement XIV showed the willingness to open the gallery to the public.  

COLOSSEUM TOUR: WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT IT :

The largest amphitheatre in Rome was built by Vespasian in the early years of his reign, in 69 BC in the valley among the Palatine, the Esquiline and the Caelian Hill. This area in the past was occupied by the artificial lake of the Domus Aurea built by the Emperor Nero. The name "Colosseum" spread in the Middle Ages and derives from the deformation of the adjective colossal in reference to its enormous dimensions; the building, in fact, forms an oval of 527 meters perimeter and the surface exceeds 3,350 square meters. There is also another theory for which the amphitheatre has this nickname, which refers to the huge bronze statue placed near the monument.

Used, before Domitian as a scenario of naval battles, the spaces of the amphitheatre were then reserved for games of gladiators and hunt of wild animals. It is worth mentioning the enormous quantity of material that was necessary for the construction of this mammoth work: 100,000 cubic meters of travertine and 300 tons of iron! With the end of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum underwent a long phase of decadence. From a grandiose theatre of ancient Rome, the monument was transformed into a quarry of materials for the construction of St. Peter's Basilica and private buildings. Due to the looting of the Renaissance and the damage caused by earthquakes,today only one third remains of the original Colosseum. It is an incredible fortune, for us today, to be able to enter and take a dip in the past.
