The Colosseum is pretty indescribable. It's both bigger and smaller than it seems in the movies and on TV. The outside and the structure itself feel massive. The floor of the arena itself seems relatively small, but there's plenty of room for gladiators to fight wild animals and each other. Did you know that our word arena comes from the Latin for sand? At least, that's what our guide said.
