Rome was my last stalwart of the major iconic cities to see in Europe. I’d been to Paris, London, Berlin and many more but for some reason Rome was always the “yeah I’ll get there soon” kinda city. I don’t know why when it’s filled with such amazing sights like the Colosseum.
Standing before the Colosseum, one of the most well-known symbols of Rome it’s hard to believe that it has stood here for centuries. I couldn’t help but think wow, Australia as a country has only been around a couple of hundred years and half the buildings there don’t look nearly as good as this old beauty does today.
No matter how touristy or crowded this place gets it has to seen with your own eyes to really appreciate. Hand over the 12 euros for entry and spend an hour or two walking in the foot steps of many a Roman before you, the view is worth it.
