Day 17 - Rome, Italy

Today, we decided to visit the Coliseum. Let me say that it was even more spectacular than I expected. The 45 minutes wait was actually worth it (however, I would strongly recommend anyone who goes there to buy their tickets in advance). The history in that place is almost overwhelming, especially when you sit down (in a well shaded area), breathe in, and simply take to time to acknowledge where you are at that moment. So much has happened in that exact spot, so much history, that to think that you are standing there in that moment is simply mind-boggling.
