The Colosseum, for us, had always been one of those bucket list places – you know, one of those places we’d eventually visit. When the opportunity presented itself for us to be whisked off to Rome for a few days sooner rather than later, we hopped all over it. The excitement between us was beyond palpable, even through sleepy, bag-filled eyes, as we landed and checked into our hotel early on a Saturday morning. Then we hit the fork in the road – power nap or persevere. Excitement won and we veered right, quickly showered and began our trek to the nearly two thousand year old Colosseum that couldn’t wait another 15 minutes for a power nap for our visit!
Despite the inhumanity, one’s mind can’t help but to recreate gladiatorial contests of centuries past while standing where tens of thousands have sat. What an experience! Then, it was time for our first Roman lunch.
