Rome was one of the first four cities I visited the very first time I traveled alone to Europe (along with Paris, Florence and Munich) and the Roman Colosseum excited me the most about that trip. You see when I was still in school, World History really piqued my interest – Rome’s in particular and I was on a high when I realized that I am on my way to see one of the greatest architecture of the Roman empire – the Colosseum. Of course I watched the Gladiator movie again before I went to Rome just to give me some visuals of what might have happened there when I finally set foot in the Colosseum with Russel Crowe in it.
Now I am not going to talk about the details and history of this massive and grand ampitheatre – that’s what other websites are for. I’ll just feed you with photos which I sure hope will make you want to see it for yourself. All photos below were taken during my second visit to Rome with a Trafalgar tour. 🙂
