We then got fed and watered and headed to see the Colloseum for a quick look around - we were saving actually going in it for the last day in Rome. Fortunately, it was a quick hop on the metro and one change, then we were there. As soon as you leave the metro station, you can see it there, huge in front of you. It is a real shame that they haven't preserved it as well as some of the other old buildings in Rome, I think it would have been awesome if they had. Ah well, it still does look pretty awesome from the outside.
We started to flag a little and decided it was time to head back to the campsite to soak our feet in the pool, so off we went, Stu almost getting pickpocketed by some bint on the bus on the way, not good.
After refreshing, we headed off into Rome to see it lit up at night, but because of the damn public transport we could only stay out for about an hour and a half, not enough time to get around and see the main attractions lit up at night, in fact we only saw the Trevi fountain, and it was a bit disappointing really.
