The Colosseum – A Day of Entertainment in Ancient Rome

It is a beautiful day here in April 2014 – sun is out, the temperature is finally warm after a brutal winter. A time to spend in the glory of spring!

But over 2000 years ago, what Romans did do to enjoy themselves? They had the theater, dinner parties and the spectacle of the games. What games? Chariot racing was big but the most exciting of all – the gladiatorial games.
