20. The Colosseum, Rome
You know about the Colosseum from your days learning about Ancient Rome in school. After a decade, the Ancient Romans finally finished the Colosseum and quickly started to celebrate. It became famous as a gladiatorial battleground, a sport that Ancient Romans loved. Fearless warriors entered the Colosseum ready to battle tigers, lions, and other animals that could rip them to shreds. While the seats, canopies above the seats, and the floor are gone, the rest remains intact.
As one of the most popular sites in the world and the most popular place in Italy, you can’t avoid crowds. However, there are fewer crowds during the coldest months of the year when people don’t tend to take family vacations.
