How tall is the Colosseum?

Rome was nearly 800-years old when the Colosseum opened in A.D. 80. It accommodated approximately 50,000 spectators, and had over 80 entrances and 36 trap doors. In addition to free food and admittance, there were water fountains, snack bars, and indoor restrooms. Shade was provided by a massive canvas canopy operated by a team of one thousand sailors. Area beneath the Colosseum (hypogeum) had two subterranean levels with tunnels and 32 animal pens. Eighty rope and pulley "elevators" provided immediate stage access for scenery, animals, and gladiators. (See First Century Life: Gladiators)
