The Coliseum

The floor you can see in the foreground is a replica of what the original would have looked like, only it would have covered the entire oval.  It is called arena after a word of Spanish origin meaning sand.  Sand would have covered the floor.

The remains of a circular fountain.

You can see the names of the senators engraved upon their seats.

Those were some steep steps.
