Ancient Rome in the morning

Of course you can’t go to Rome and not visit the Colosseum. We booked an early morning tour with Tours by Locals and made our way down the Via dei Fori Imperiali to meet our guide. They have recently given the entire exterior a cleaning, so it’s much brighter than I remembered. We walked through several levels, learning all about the “games” played there and the people who watched. After snapping some photos, we continued to Palatine Hill to see the remains of the ancient imperial palaces. Then to the Roman Forum to see the remains of the ancient city center, temples and home of the Vestal Virgins. We stopped to admire the Arch of Titus. It’s much better to have a guide with you in these sites so you know what you’re actually looking at.
