Colosseo

The most exciting attraction for us in Rome was the Colosseum. We lucked out and went on the first Sunday of the month, which meant entry was free of charge, the lines weren't half bad either.

Channeling our inner Gladiators, we explored the place picturing Russel Crow the whole time And quoting the Gladiator  movie under our breaths every ten minutes. I didn't realize they displayed a number of artifacts from that time, I found it to be incredibly interesting learning how they lived their daily lives and the significance of the Roman gods.

After the Colosseum was the Roman Forum and Palatine hill.

For lunch we went on a bit of a wild goose chase trying to find a restaurant we starred on the map, we never did find it though so we settled for a cute looking cafe just to get out of the heat for awhile, plus Gelato for desert.

Our last day was spent packing up, cleaning the apartment and lounging around until lunch time where we set out to find the best Gelato around. Saving the best for last we went to Giolitti, the sorbet tasted like candy and I could have gone back for three more cones.
