The Colosseum – Rome

noicolosseo

We reserved a full day for the Colosseum, or half of it at least. We woke up quite early in order to drive down to the Colosseum, find a parking spot and avoid as much as possible the long line that you can find here every day. We bought the tickets, an audioguide and started out tour inside one of the first stadiums in history. The audioguide is seriously recommended, it gives you a lot of details about the history of the building and the construction as well as the use of it throughout time.

It took us about 2 and half hours to complete the tour, and it’s worth every minute of it: it’s just so interesting to see and admire what the Romans have done in that place!

After the tour, we walked around the area for a little bit (also the visit of the “Palatino” would have been really interesting but we skipped it) ad then went for lunch.

In the afternoon we decided to relax and spend some quality couple time by going to see “Sing” a really nice and funny cartoon wich just came out in the theaters.
