This March we will be travelling to Orlando. The little guy wants to see Lego Land and Gatorland, then we will travel to get on our Disney cruise. I wanted to do it while he is still little. Little?! He is now taller than I am and he is only 11. He is growing out of his clothes too fast.
There are so many more posts to write about for each adventure so I thought I'd start by adding more about our Rome adventure. It was breathtaking to think that I walked where Gladiators walked. I imagined the roar of the crowds cheering on the battle worn worriers, wondering who will live and who will die.
There is so much to see in Rome so if you are lucky enough to get here, make sure you do lots of research on the best tours. A private tour for the Vatican is the best way to view Vatican City and the Sistine Chapel. There are no line ups or wait times. Your tour guide takes you on your way. If you need to use an alternate way to view the Vatican, such as a wheelchair, they have a special way to go that other tourists don't get to see. I did the regular tour but I wish I had taken the wheelchair way. When you get to St. Peter's church, it is amazing to see the statues, graves and beauty that you only heard of but now are seeing with your own eyes.
I hope you enjoy my little tour of Rome and the amazing Colosseum where Gladiators roamed.
|This little guy is now taller than his sister. This is one of our first views of the Colosseum|
|Hard to imagine the Roman Forum buildings but you can buy postcards that show what it did look like.|
|These are the buildings across the street from the Colosseum.|
|I'm standing across another street to take this picture.|
|The height of this is amazing!|
|Many areas are blocked off.|
|Kids were captivated by the whole Colosseum.|
|Can you picture the seats here?|
|He's so cute!|
|We no longer can actually go into the Arch but this is an incredible structure.|
|This was at a time when rallies were beginning all over the world.|
