  • Meta Sudans is a large cone fountain built around 89-96 years after the Colosseum was completed at the intersection between the Temple of Venus and the Roman Temple (the largest temple in ancient Rome). We visited the Colosseum with the Arc de Triomphe of Constantine while waiting for the admission time of the Colosseum.

  • Among the remains of the ancient city, where even the most remote legend survives, our desire for knowledge remains inexhaustible. The Meta Sudans that I tell has been sacrificed to the new urbanization wanted by Mussolini. From old photos that document it, you can see how it had been consumed by time already complicated to think. But in the Flavia age, it was a beautiful conical fountain with a collection basket that permeated it and the water, from the top of a perforated sphere, gushed in small rivulets. Located in front of the Arch of Constantine, between the Colosseum and the Holy Way, legend has it that the gladiators engaged in the fighting went there to clean themselves of the spilled blood. Today there is only a large flowerland and a glance that amazes me.

  • In front of the Coliseum is a grassy area with hints of the place where the Meta Sudans stood, a conical fountain that was then apparently serving as a source of water.

  • Great Arch just close to Colosseum
  • Beautiful landmark right next to Colloseum so you can enjoy its beauty while waiting 2h in line to get tickets.
  • nice place for a beautiful sunset Colosseum view
  • Wonderful, especially when you know the history. Could be easily overlook, next to the other attractions
  • Great historical land mark. If the land mark could talk it would be outstanding to hear what it would have to say.
