Colosseum

They say all roads lead to Rome. And so, here you are, stepping foot in the fabled Eternal City. Get ready – there’s really nowhere else like it on earth! From the vast collections of the Vatican Museum (where Michelangelos are ten to a penny) to the romantic walks of La Trastevere district, you’ll never be bored. Be sure to put ancient Rome front and center though. The hulking Colosseum and the Roman Forum are among the greatest treasures of human history. Tours of both can be combined to save money. And you get to hear about gladiators fighting lions!

The Colosseum is a very impressive monument. They have tours so you can learn about the history and even visit inside. But even if you don't do the tour, seeing it from the outside remains an amazing experience.

Did you actually go to Rome if you don’t get a picture in front of the colosseum? It’s a jaw dropping structure and there are so many opportunities for great photos in the world’s largest amphitheater.
