The Colosseum is an incredible example of Ancient Roman Architecture.
It is well worth standing in line to go inside.
This was the first time we'd been inside the Colosseum.
The kids were just gobsmacked as you can imagine.
Construction commenced in 72AD!
You can see places where stones have fallen from natural disasters &
stolen by 'stone thieves', which adds to the amphitheatre's character.
Driving around the Colosseum in a mini at night time
listening to italian music also adds to it's character!
My daughter was fascinated by the brickwork
(not sure where she gets that from?!!)
I could have just picked this one up and brought it home
You can see by this photo that we had magnificent weather
Call me strange, but I like
the rough edges of the Trevi Fountain better than the front
Don't be afraid to visit tourist places when in Rome
they are popular for a reason!
We visited St Peter's Basilica a number of times
as it was in our hood
This was my 3rd visit to the Vatican Museum
Wouldn't this sculpture look beautiful in my front yard?!
My favourite area in Rome is Trastevere.
The restaurants and Cafes there are gorgeous & hidden
within the alleyways
This gorgeous building reminds me of my new driveway!
After a few days my children [who are half Italian]
have really made themselves at home!
