Roman Colosseum - Under the emperor Titus the Colosseum, which his father Vespasian had begun, was completed in 80 A.D. It was indeed the most magnificent amphitheatres in the world. The Colosseum was built for gladiatorial and animal fights. The arena could even be flooded for ships to enact naval battles.
Aqueducts - When the Romans required
more water for a large town or city, but couldn't find it where it was needed;
they simply built a channel to carry water to where it was required. Emperor
Claudius even had a tunnel built through the hills to carry water from a lake
Pantheon – The Pantheon was one of the many temples in
Roman Baths - After a morning's work at the office or shop, most Roman's
enjoyed spending the afternoon at the thermae or public bath. Men and women
enjoyed coming to the baths not only to get clean but to meet with friends,
exercise, or read at the library.
Generally, Romans would first go to the unctuarium where they had oil rubbed onto their skin and would then exercise in one of the exercise yards. From here they would move to the tepidarium or warm room where they would lie around chatting with their friends. Next, it was on to the caldarium, similar to a Turkish bath, hot and steamy. Here they sat and perspired, scraping their skin with a strigil, a curved metal tool. Attendants would serve them snacks and drinks. Finally came a dip in the calidarium (hot bath) and a quick dip in the frigidarium (cold bath). After swimming, the bather might enjoy a massage where he might have oils and perfumes rubbed into his skin.
Feeling clean and relaxed, the Roman might drift through the beautiful gardens decorated with mosaics and colossal scruptures or enjoy athletic events in a theaterlike rotunda.
