Whether you walk round or go in this is an awesome building. Only spoilt by all the “ticket touts” hassling tourists.

I know, a bit hypocritical given I was a tourist (from a cruise ship), but the Colosseum was just a sea of tourists, but it was a bucket list tick off experience

We queued up to enter this ancient building. The stonework still surviving is amazing as it is stone upon stone not stone overlapping the stone beneath for strength as bricks are laid today. We climbed to the highest level and looked down into the complex...More

If you are in Rome you have to visit the Colosseum and all that is around it - the museums, the Forum, the ruins, and much more! Expect long lines and crowds but it is such an amazing site to see that it is worth...More

Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
