Perhaps the best-preserved of the monuments of ancient Rome, this huge marble structure was built to hold more than 50,000 spectators to witness bloody contests of might and the slaughter of wild beasts.

Our Vatican guide helped us book with her company italy-museums.com the tour of Colosseum with underground and Belvedere, which is the top level. We were lucky to be able to book last minute as this tour sells out very quickly. in my opinion unmissable !

Did the underground and up top tour. Awesome place. Took a horse carriage from the exit around the center of town for E150 but worth it as my wife had an injured knee.

Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just
west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as
it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet
for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season,
quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its
cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique
and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime
residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at
