Inside the Colosseum was again mind blowing. The history that happened in here was incredible, with the poorer class sitting at the highest level (women on the very top) king and higher borns who would dress down to get up to the women, to the fights that happened in here. Our tour guide explained that if a slave wanted his freedom he had to win 5 fights, but in a lot of cases their lords would let them go due to the bravery that they even wanted to attempt ...
... being this random garden we found on top of a building, it had the most amazing view of the whole of Rome. It was spectacular! However we found this park at 6.45 when we had to be back at the Spanish stairs to leave at 7.15 and we really had no idea where we were or how to get back! We were back at the Spanish stairs by 7.03pm! What a great effort! After the metro ride back to the accommodation we gathered our washing and head to Moe's ...

After the fashion show I walked down Via del Babuino and Corso and went into a few boutiques along the ...
... free map and guidebook and walk around. Pompeii is massive, and it is still so intact it is amazing. They haven’t even excavated the whole thing yet so who knows what else they may find (Dave note: probably stone walls). I was expecting to see lots of body casts but only saw two, these were also locked away in a big storage room. We spent about 3 hours here wandering around and then caught the train back to Naples. That night was my birthday so we went out for dinner to ...
