Hypogeum Tour At The Colosseum In Rome
It's now possible to tour the hypogeum, or underground spaces, beneath the Colosseum. Wandering among the ancient arches beneath the partially reconstructed forum floor really gives you a sense of the massive undertaking it was to put on the horrible spectacles above. The gladiators' tunnel, trap doors, elevators and animal cages are all given great context.
