Unfortunately, currently, the Colosseum is not in the perfect state anymore that it once was. A ruin is left at the moment which is currently being well looked after, maintained and restored. The Colosseum is now ‘just’ a ruin as the structure suffered from earthquakes and many stone-robbers took some Colosseum parts. Nevertheless, it is still an amazing site to visit.
