We have been in Rome for a few days and have already seen so much. One thing I a particularly excited to see is the Coliseum. I read a book called Blood and Sand, it is an excellent book on Rome and Pompeii, and it taught me about how people use the Coliseum. For instance, the women, are seated at the very top of the Coliseum, the worst seat. The regular citizens of Rome were on the third row up. The second row up was reserved for people like knights and the people with a higher rank in the city. Lastly, the bottom was of course where the gladiators fought. This is my opinion, but I would honestly love to be at the top of the Coliseum because I don’t exactly like watching people being slaughtered, especially up close. I can’t wait to tour this fantastic place!
Now one of my favorite things that I have done is walk to all of the churches because there are beautiful paintings everywhere, filling the insides of the walls.
This place is so beautiful and I can’t wait to discover more amazing places! ヽ(⪰ᗜ⪯)ﾉ
You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a plane ticket, and it’s kind of the same thing! ✈️🙃
