The Colosseum, in Rome Italy, is not only famous for its architectural and cultural significance but is also the most haunted place of Europe. Tourists have complained of "being touched", "pushed", "hearing weeping, moaning, swords clashing" and other such incidents while visiting the place. They have also spotted ghostly figures walking up and down the stairs and Roman soldiers standing at the exits!

Because the Colosseum held so many Roman spectators, it was necessary to have an easy way to exit. About 80 ground-level passages were built, each with a number. Some of the numbers are even still legible today.
