Romeís Bloody History Still Haunts the Colosseum
The most famous place in all of Rome, if not Italy, is the Colosseum. Built between 70 and 72 AD, it became the centerpiece of the Roman Empire and served as the location where gladiators, slaves and Christians fought for their lives in front of blood thirsty fans. Many scholars estimate that roughly 500,000 people died in the Colosseum over the course of its life, and 1,000,000 animals are thought to have died as well.
Naturally, many people feel that the Colosseum is haunted by many of those spirits who lost their lives for the amusement of fans. Locals report hearing whispering around them in the tunnels of the Colosseum, and some have seen lights floating around where many gladiators waited to die.
Other visitors say they have felt someone touching them, as well as being pushed. There are also strange cold spots in the Colosseum, which are cold even on hot days.
The sound of people crying can be heard in the stadium, as can swords clashing and the noises of wild animals. Tourists to the Colosseum also report seeing ghostly figures walking up the stairs of the stadium, and sitting down. Ghostly roman soldiers are also commonly seen standing at exit ways.
