^ I remember is by spelling colossus (huge), placing an "e" after the second "s" and replacing the third "s" with the "m". Sounds more complicated than it is, really!

Still incorrect. The standard English spelling is Colosseum. You could also allow Colosseo (Italian) or the English alternative Coliseum. At any event, Coloseum is wrong.

Nice, fun to type my name as one of the answers and seeing that my nose is typical :D I think a few answers are too Ancient Rome based instead of Rome as an actualy city. I will try to think of a few suggestions.

Here's my suggestions! F: Fiumicino Airport as an answer I: change the clue so it refers to Caesar's killing which is more 'Rome' based? L: Lazio (the Region Rome belongs to or one of the two local teams in Serie A?) S: could also mentioned the modern one (eg modern one is in Palazzo Madama) X: not sure how but maybe the MAXXI museum can be used so XXI is the answer? Maxxi being Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo) Y: Young - ___ English Poet, largest words written on Keats' tomb in the Non-Catholic Cemetery Z: Zoo - there is one in part of Villa Borghese
