Let's get the party started!

The construction of the Colosseum began during the reign of Emperor Vespasian, but it was his son Titus who inaugurated the amphitheater, in the year 80 CE. The opening ceremony was held with all the spectacle and grandeur that the event had to entail. Three-month long games were organized as part of the grand inauguration with the events being scheduled according to the customary way; the hunts in the morning, the executions at midday and the gladiatorial combats in the afternoon. Of course, all this was realized at the expense of human lives and thousands of animals, as 2000 gladiators and 9000 animals died during Titus’ inauguration games.

    The virtual tour of the Colosseum was an overall good experience. Play, pause, next buttons could help navigate through the stories.

    Will a virtual tour give you the exact same feeling you would get if you visited Colosseum for real? No. But this 360 experience is overall realistic and extremely amusing. The stories have funny titles and there’s a lot of them. It’s everything you’d need for a time like this, when travelling anywhere -let along Italy- is this dangerous.

    Our flight was cancelled and we got this as a substitute. At least we got a taste of what it’s like wandering around and inside Colosseum. It helped.
