What Survived?

Similar to nowadays stadiums, the Colosseum had architectonic solutions for a quick evacuation of the crowd, in case of danger.

The amphitheatre had eighty entrances at ground level, 76 of which were used by ordinary spectators, and the others by preeminent citizens, for example, the northern main entrance was reserved for the Roman Emperor and his aides.

Each entrance and exit had a number, as well as each staircase. Entrances XXIII (23) to LIV (54) still survive and also fragments of the paintings that decorated the exits.

Parts of the building, including the marble façade, were used for the construction of later monuments. One of them is the St. Peter's Basilica, one of the most important touristic attractions in Rome. This impressing building is considered to be the center of Christianity.
