Actually very little remains of the great buildings that used to occupy the Roman capital. But even though most of the buildings have been reduced to rubble or torn down for materials to make new buildings, what is left is beautiful and grandiose. Here are some pictures of sights around the Colosseum.

Hope you enjoyed them!
