Continuing with the Roman Holiday theme, how can you go to the Eternal City and not see the Colosseum? Well, that's exactly what happened when I visited Rome for the first time in the summer of 2013. Rome was more or less the mid-point of our trip, and after having dashed about Italy for 2 weeks, my body decided to protest. I fell ill in Rome and ended up not getting a chance to see the Colosseum at all! We did get off at the Colosseo metro stop and gaped at it from the outside but didn't venture in. I was keen to remedy the lapse when we went to Rome late last year. We ended up spending a large part of our day in the amphitheatre and tramping around the Roman Forum.
But the highlight of our visit was undoubtedly the Colosseum at Night tour offered by Walks of Italy. In my opinion, this is the best way to visit the Colosseum!
