Our first day in Roma we hit it big!
We started our day with Arc of Constantine
and right next door is...
The beautiful Coliseum
The entire time we just walked around stunned.
After waiting for years and dreaming of coming here to finally arrive, was just unbelievable
The sheer size of it is just INCREDIBLE!
Frescoes in the house of Augustus
Basilica of Constantine
Walking where Caesar Augustus walked... Rick Steve told us to do it.
For being a lot of rubble, The Roman Forum is awesome... thanks to a lovely little guide book, you can picture everything and just knowing how old it is is enough to send your mind reeling
Trevi!! We literally could have just sat here and watched the water all day... and of course Jon and I tossed in a coin :)
The grave of Raphael
Such a sweet dome!
And an even sweeter way to end our day :)
The first day in Rome was an absolute success~
Definitely a place I'll be coming back too!
