Photo Gallery: The Colosseum Follow us on Facebook! Here are some additional photos of our visit to the Colosseum. The exterior wall of the Colosseum. Only part of it remains. Cracks in the facade. Actors pose with tourists for pictures Interior walls supported by flying buttresses which also supported the seating. More of the interior of the Colosseum The long center pathway of the hypogeum The recreated stage area The colour of the sandstone can be seen in the bright sunlight. In shadow it looks quite gray. Looking down from one of the upper tiers Another view from an upper tier From outside you can see some of the interior through the archways, but it is still worth paying to go in. This end of the outer wall is of modern construction, created during extensive renovations to preserve the outer wall. The Temple of Venus and Roma is just across the street from the Colosseum. In fact, much of Rome is one big archeological dig. Follow us on Facebook!
