It use to be surrounded by a massive wall. It's still there however the city is now much bigger. First stop the Colesseum. Apparently 500,000 people died here. (Gladiator fights or execution).

... We then headed to the Pantheon, which was breathtaking. As soon as you turned a corner, the Pantheon arose out of nowhere from the crowded buildings. The sun rays shining on it made it seem like a dream. The inside was even more spectacular. You have to see it in real life to really understand.
