Rome if you want to...


This weekend was spent roamin' the streets of Rome!! It was amazing!!! There seriously are not words to describe that city. Basically you just HAVE to experience it! So we had 2 days to see Rome- most say it's impossible to see everything... I completely agree... but I was up for the challenge. I spent thursday planning exactly everything that I wanted to see and then mapped it all out. I knew I only had 2 days, but I was going to see as much as POSSIBLE!!

So here is what I saw...

1. The Trevi Fountain

2. The Colosseum
9,000 gladiators, 10,000 animals, 1,000's of spectators- battle to the death. IT was amazing-
a few fun facts:
the floor was made with wood and covered in sand to soak up the blood so the others wouldn't slip
the Colosseum could be flooded to recreate water battles
Giraffes, Rino's, tigers, lions, alligators, elephants, and more were brought into the area

3. The Vatican and Sistine Chapel

4. St. Peter's basilica

5. The Pantheon
6. the Spanish Stairs
7. the Roman Forum

I have to go for the moment, So I will complete my Rome trip later- BUT IT WAS SERIOUSLY UNREAL!!!!
