    The famous elliptical building the Colosseum was once the largest amphitheatre of the Empire, where gladiators, criminals and lions alike fought for their lives. It was built in 80 AD and is 16 feet tall with 160 enormous statues on every arch. The Colosseum could accommodate 55,000 people who entered the building through 80 entrances. It is a wonderful sight to see in the evening when the lights illuminate the structure. One can only admire the bits of the structure of what was saved by the massive earthquake in 847 AD.

    The Trevi Fountain is situated at the end of the Aqua Virgo. The fountain existed since the 15th century. A larger fountain was created by Nicola Salvi and was sculpted by Pietro Bracci. The fountain was then inaugurated after he passed away in 1762. The central figure of the fountain, standing in a large niche, is Neptune, god of the sea. You can visit the monument during your evening stroll around the city to admire the other monuments illuminated, making the city look mystical and gorgeous. Make sure you follow the tradition and throw a coin into the fountain's water basin so that you will return to Rome. You should toss it with your right hand over your left shoulder (or left hand over your right shoulder) with your back to the fountain.
