Colosseum And The Forum

Every day that we were in Rome we were seeing and walking near the Colosseum which is just awesome. The whole area is dripping in history and atmosphere.

On the Sunday we decided to spend the day in the area, so the morning was spent in the Colosseum, once we made it in! The afternoon was then spent walking around the forum. Didn’t get as long in the forum so would be great when we go back to be able to spend more time in there.

Long queue to get in to the place, took us about 2 hours from this point but well worth it and having seen the queue a lot longer could have been much worse. Also luckily we weren’t standing in the hot sun for too long either.

Kat found ways to pass the time in the queue:

Really enjoyed walking around the place and being able to take it all in. If could go back in time would love to go back to here and see the games.

We were having two ice creams a day, when in Rome …. This one was our after lunch ice cream and then we headed into the forum.
