More than six million people visit the Colosseum, the top tourist attraction in Italy, every year. Now they can delight unseen up to now views over the magnificent  surroundings, including the nearby Palatine Hill and Roman Forum.

The top of Rome’s Colosseum has been removed for the first time in decades, allowing the tourists to enjoy great views from the top.

From 1 November, visitors can climb up to the highest level of the amphitheatre, where gladiators used to fight. The top level of the Colosseum used to be reserved for plebeians, who were the lowliest members of society.
