During our trip to Italy (and Rome specifically), we decided to wake up, eat a cornetto and drink an espresso for breakfast, and walk the ten minutes from our apartment to the Colosseum. It's incredible to go on a casual stroll in the city, through a park and just coming upon one of the most incredible buildings from the ancient world. The sight of it is truly astonishing to me every time! We stopped to take some photos to the side of the entrance where there were surprisingly few people. We took a few moments to admire each level of the Colosseum before heading towards the short line to to inside.
