Visiting Rome

Rome was the last stop of our trip in Europe, and one of my favourite places. I'd been looking forward to exploring a lot of the historic sites, but hadn't realised the scale and just how much there was to see.

In between visiting the Vatican, Colosseum, Forum and other sights we made frequent (and I mean really frequent!) stops for gelato.

The Colosseum was the most interesting for me - I always like walking round ancient sites which were actually in use back in the day (I'd much rather visit an old castle than a museum, and ancient temples beat galleries any day).

We both threw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, so we'll be coming back one day!
