Rome Landmarks

Rome, Italy
 The Colosseum is the large stadium where the Roman Gladiators once fought 1500 years ago.

 Palatine Hill or Palace Hill is the sight of many ancient palaces. It is currently an active archaeological site.
The Forum is the site of the ancient village center.
 
The Arch of Constantine was built in 312 to commemorate a battle.
 The Arch of Titus was constructed in 82 AD to commemorate Titus' victories. This arch served as a model for many triumphal arches including the Arc de Triomphe in Paris.
 
 The Spanish Steps are a popular resting spot at the foot of the Spanish Embassy.
The Pantheon was built for the Roman Gods and later became a Roman Catholic Church which enabled the structure to withstand the test of time.
According to legend Romulus and Remus, the founders of the ancient city of Rome, were raised by a she wolf.
