The Roman Forum was the location of the ancient ruins where the government buildings and surrounding buildings were located.  Elections, public speeches, criminal trials, and other activities were common at the Roman Forum.  Originally, the area was referred to as "the Forum" by the ancient Romans.


The Roman Colosseum is also referred to as the "Flavian Amphitheater".  It is the largest amphitheater ever built.  Construction began on the colosseum in AD 72 and was completed in AD 80.  It was used for a variety of activities, but is most famous is gladiator fights.  Many people also believe early Christians were fed to the lions in the colosseum.  This story seems to be more myth than fact.  There is no documented evidence the early Christians were executed in this manner.


The Fountain of Trevi  began construction in 1732 and was completed thirty years later in 1762.  The fountain was refurbished in 1998 (scrubbed, cleaned, areas of deterioration repaired, and a recirculating pump added).  A much more major restoration began in 2014 (after the above picture was taken) and was completed in late 2015.


Popolo Square (Piazza Del Popolo) is a large square in Rome.  Public executions took place in Popolo Square for centuries up until 1826.
