Did Rome all day, saw all the important things. There are so many things to explore, its a huge city like Paris. Contiki took us on another walking tour. The Pantheon wasnt that great, most of it was covered in scaffolding, and we couldnt go inside. Trevi Fountain was nice but mega packed with tourists. I liked the Barcelona fountain more actually. The forum aound the Colosseum was all in ruins but full of history. The Colosseum itself was cool, very huge! We climbed to the higher levels too. I didnt see any gladioators, but I took a pic with a Roman legionare.
Later in our free time, a group of us went to see the Spanish Steps, a hangout spot where atists use to pick up models. Also went to S.Maria Concezione, a church with a crypt made out of thousands of bones! The skulls and skeletons use to belong to the Cappucin Monks. Now they have been arranged into impressive art formations and patterns. A must see!
I wish I stayed in Rome for more hours, but went home with the group, coz we had to catch both a train and bus to get to ou cabins >.<
