Quarantine Captures: The Roman Colosseum

The Roman Colosseum

No doubt one of the most iconic structures ever built, the Colosseum has been a destination for families since 80ad. The 80,000 seat venue initially drew them in for the double feature of gladiator fights and lion feeding, while today the 4 million visitors each year stick to touring the underground passageways, posing for postcards in the square… and gelato. lots of delicious gelato.

Our flight over the city to collect 7.5cm resolution oblique imagery earlier this year presented the rare opportunity to see some of Rome’s architectural landmarks without the traffic and tourists. I’m looking forward to this area being published to our platform in the coming weeks and exploring it interactively.
