Visiting The Ancient Coliseum In Rome

I just downloaded piccassa 3 from google and wow... there are all my photos from all the cruises we've taken.  As I browse though the photos I realize what a poor job we've done putting the photos up on the website.  Oh well.

I thought I would post a few of the pics I find that I like... otherwise no one will ever see them.  I was terribly impressed with the coliseum when we were there on a shore excursion during our Mediterranean cruise ship vacation aboard the Millennium. So here are a few photos of the coliseum that we took during the trip.

We didn't really have a lot of time for things in Rome. Had to see the Vatican City, Museum, and Sistine Chapel.  It was a very busy day.
The Coliseum is one huge structure. Amazing
what they could do in Ancient Rome.

the coliseum.  Look how big it is.

See all those people on that bridge over the
center of the floor of the coliseum.  Down below
they actually did have cages for lions and all
that stuff. Underneath the floor of the coliseum is quite
complex and full of passageways and trap doors etc. 

You are seeing only half of the bottom of the coliseum.
