You will see the most famous symbol of the Imperial Rome, where thousands of men fought and died. Dropped by the monumental Triumph Arch of Constantine, you skip the line and enter the galleries of the Amphitheatre Flavius, as it was known by Romans. You will see the arena, the battleground from the first level, where the rich middleclass merchants watched the duels who made this monuments famous all over the world. Then you will reach the lower level , imagining the noise and the smell of 70.000 spectators watching the best gladiators killing each other or fighting exotic animals, only for the leisure of a lazy and corrupted populace.

Have your lunch in one of the many small trattoria in Piazza Navona, once the circus of the Emperor Domitian, now a startling beauty of fountain and Baroque triumph.
