Rome Just Opened The Upper Floors Of The Colosseum For The First Time In Many Years

By Collin Gossel

The Colosseum in Rome is Italy's most popular tourist attraction. Every year, millions of people flock to see where gladiators used to fight. On November 1st, however, for the first time in decades, the top of the Colosseum is being removed, and guests will be allowed to climb to the structures highest level, more than 120 feet off the ground!

5 stories off the ground, the highest levels of the Colosseum used to be reserved for Plebians - the lowliest members of Roman society. The wooden seats were cheaper than the closer, marble benches, because they were so far away from the action.
