    Rome

    October 12, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Arrived in a much warmer Rome on the flight from Amsterdam. The AirBnB apartment was great...no lounge area, but fully self-contained and 2 huge bedrooms with their own ensuites. Literally 400m from the Colosseum, and walking distance to all the attractions.

    Visited all the major attractions except Vatican City...we simply didn't have time.

    We pre-booked a guided tour of the Colosseum including underground and Tier 3 which were great. Not many people are allowed to get to Tier 3. Really enjoyed seeing the underground tunnels, lions cages and a rebuilt lift that took the animals up to the arena floor. Tier 3 offered fantastic views of the whole colosseum and outside ruins.
