Rome: The Roman Colosseum - v2.0

Wed, 29 Dec 2010 12:00:08 +0100

The greatest and most formidable amphitheatre in the Roman world. The event the audience enjoyed most was definitely the gladiators. Towards midday there was a break during which they removed the bodies and spread more sand on the arena floor. A deafening noise arose from the audience; the gladiators paraded into the packed arena triumphantly and were welcomed by fans like real heroes, a bit like today's sports champions. After a brief walk around the arena, the gladiators paid homage to the Emperor's stage saluting with the famous words "Ave Cesare morituri te salutant" (Ave Caesar, those who are about to die salute you).

Rome: The Pantheon - v2.0

Wed, 29 Dec 2010 12:00:04 +0100

The Pantheon is the Roman monument holding the greatest number of records: the best preserved, with the biggest brick dome in the history of architecture and is considered the forerunner of all modern places of worship. It is the most copied and imitated of all ancient works. Michelangelo felt it was the work of angels not men.
