(Sept 18, 2013)
2nd day in Rome and we woke up bright and early to head to the Colosseum/Roman Forum/Palatine Hill which are all grouped together in one area.
Again, pre booking a ticket is recommended to skip waiting in the long queues. The ruins itself is an amazing sight to see (despite of all the tourists) as it gives you a glimpse to Imperial Rome..
Just outside of the Colosseum you can then head on to the Roman forum. This is a plaze surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings at the center of the city of Rome.
The whole place can be explored in around 2-3 hrs.. We did some souvenir shopping in the afternoon, checked out the Trevi fountain
and then looked for a place to have dinner in in Trastevere.
We’re now counting down to the end of our Europe trip.. We’ve pretty much done all our must sees in Rome, so the next day is we’re spending the full day on a day trip outside of Rome. Until my next post!
