View of the Piazza del Colosseo: Horse carraiges are waiting for tourists, and in the back you can see the Chiesa di Stanta Francesca Romana.

Another shot of the outer walls of the Colosseum: To protect against the sun, the Romans could close a sun roof. Even today, the anchors for this can be seen on the top of the building!
