Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

An evening visit to the Colosseum can simply NOT be beat. Mind you, you will need to schedule with a tour group. The evening views and summer breeze will win you over alone~ let alone the history shared by a guide. Go for the intimate...More

Didn’t have much time today, but it was fun to see the place again. If you have time after seeing the place stop and have a meal at one of the many places around the place.

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as

for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
