After watching the movie "Jumper", I told myself that I'm not going to miss the Coliseum once I'm on a holiday in Rome. Last month, I had the opportunity to spend summer in this wonderful place. Our guide took us to the Coliseum on our second day. And my, it was vast! I imagined the early days of the Roman empire where gladiators fought in the arena for entertainment of the kings, queens and their retinue.
Though centuries old, what remains was preserved for posterity. I find the whole place enchanting. It was a unique experience.
We did lots of walking and cruised the perimeter of the Coliseum from all angles. Our tour guide was very helpful in taking us down to memory lane.
