... anything to do that would get us out of the heat! We also discovered that it was free! We discovered a little too late that the Colosseum was actually free that day as well. We saw a lot of statues and old coins and some pretty amazing mosaics!! We headed to the Spanish steps in the afternoon so we could do the free walking tour.
