Rome…Through the Lens

Natalie and I traveled to the Italy for an adventure of historic proportions.  As Nat is a lover of Ancient History, Rome was the perfect place to start our tour … and her first visit to Europe to boot.  Here is Rome… Through The Lens.

All roads lead to... The Colosseum

You can walk around the Colosseum but you must pay to enter.  It's still a surreal moment to be able to see this monument up close.

Beneath the Colosseum are the Dungeons, only accessible via a guided tour.  It's pretty creepy but well worth it to get a realistic idea of how life once was.
