This was our first visit to Rome and we loved every minute of it. The Colosseum was high up on the bucket list and it didn’t disappoint, in fact it was far better than we expected. Even though we always like to do our own thing and didn’t get a guided tour, we could feel the history of the place and the brutal acts that went on all those years ago. The Vatican was also very impressive and although Harline isn’t very religious, it is the centre of the Catholic Church and therefore it was a pilgrimage of sorts. Although we are not City Break types, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Rome and loved all the food too.
