The Colosseum is a fascinating structure no matter where you view it. But my favorite perch from which to view the Colosseum has to be on this footbridge that spans the busy streets of the Monti neighborhood.

The footbridge is hardly a secret — you’ll find handfuls of tourists here at all hours of the day trying to get the perfect shot for Instagram.

I love this spot because it doesn’t filter out the modern city that surrounds this ancient monument. Rome is a living city. And this perspective just makes me love it even more.

If you want to see cool views of the Colosseum from the inside, consider taking a tour of the Colosseum’s dungeons or visit its upper levels.
