The Famous Colosseum

Rome, Lazio, Italy
16 Kudos
When we were putting our itinerary together for Italy, the Colosseum was not on my top list, I mean I would have swang by to see the outside but doing the tour was not in the plan but my husband suggested that we see the Colosseum. We booked our tour online as it can get busy and booked out at the gate. Once inside, the view was amazing, it has sustain so much damage and was carefully repair time over time. It was used for many things before it was turned into a historic landmark. I was quite impressed with the tour that I am glad my husband suggested.
