    Colosseum, Rome, Italy

    August 15, 2017 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We've done so much in Rome that it deserves several footprints in order to post all the incredible photos! We spent the day exploring the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill and surrounding areas. When I first saw the Colosseum while out running, I had a serious "pinch me" moment as it seemed so surreal that I was actually in Rome, looking at the real Colosseum I'd learnt so much about in school. The photos really don't do it justice, but it is magnificent in all it's glory. It was very cool to go inside and imagine the games that happened there hundreds of years ago, but again the place was overrun by tourists which takes away from the history. Nonetheless, it was another great site to tick off the bucket list and somewhere I'd love to return in the quiet season to explore more.Read more
