The Flavian Amphitheater, known all over the world as the Colosseum, was the largest amphitheater in the Roman Empire. The Colosseum had a capacity for about 70,000 visitors. And for more than 100 years, millions of people have been able to watch the many fights in the amphitheater here. Few compares to the grandeur of the Colosseum in Rome. In 2007 it was therefore chosen as one of the seven new wonders of the world. And every year more than 6 million tourists visit this legendary building.
But you no longer have to go to Rome to see the Colosseum from the end of November. LEGO has released its largest construction ever.
