Roman Collesum

We woke up around 8am in order to have a leisure breakfast of hot chocolate, pound cake, yougurt and a crossant per person. We made our way to the Roma Metro and bought an all day ticket for $4 dollars. Our first stop of the day was the colessum and when we got out of the metro I didn't realize that it would be right there and it was amazing. We walked around to the enterance and bought tickets for $12 euro. Inside was breathtaking, filled with history and wonder you could almost picture the fights the gladitors would have. By the way the steps inside the collesum was worse than a stairmaster on number 10, no wonder these italians are so fit. Outside of the 2nd floor balcony was an area that you could take picutures, and that is where we got fabolous pictures of the Arch of Titus.

Roman Collesum
Before leaving the collseum we made it a priority to model with some of the history. So I sat on a marble pillar and well as there was another pillar with the bottom half as a staute so naturally we were touristy and took pictures with our bottoms as stautes. After the collseum we  hopped back on the metro and headed toward the spajnish steps. These steps were orginally connecting the church at the top to the sea. And it might have back then but now a days it connects to a very well know shopping street called Via dei Candotti. And ofcourse we climed to the top of the spanish steps, ennoyed the view and started to head back down to gawk at the wonderful window shopping. After making our way down that street we headed over toward the Trevi Fountain.
Roman Collesum
Yes I did throw a coin in and actually the coins go to a special fund to feed the homeless in Rome. After having a relaxing breather at the Trevi Fountain we headed toward lunch, Chinese Italian. And oh my goodness was that chinese amazing I had chicken and sweet rice dizzled with pinapple chucks and sauce. After the Chinese restaurant we headed over toward THE VATICAN. We walked into St.Peter's Square and I about lost it. All the movies, all the history books and this is were it all took place. I just thought that was one of the coolest sites ever. So natually we went through security and made our was to see St. Peter's Basilica. Inside the Basilica we didn't see the pope but I did rub St. Peter's foot and see a monk, which was pretty coool and i took tons of pictures. After St. Peter's Basilica we made our way to the Sistine Chapel. We got there just in time because they were closing in an hour, so we are rushing through the hall of heads, hall of maps, hall of tapistries and way to many groups to count. We finally made it to the Chappel and it was CROWDED, barely enough room to move and take in how much art is in that room. It was worth the rush to get to the chappel. After the Sistine Chappel we headed back to the hotel just in time to have dinner around 6-7pm and crash, because of all of the running around. The next morning we caught the 7am train back home in time for lunch.
