Children under 8 are not allowed to climb it.the feeling to see the real leaning tower was awesome.we spend some time their and clicked pictures from different angles.

We started the tour from world famous fountain “ Trevi fountain” it’s a saying that if you make a wish and toss a coin over a left shoulder into the fountain, you are sure to return to Rome. We also tried the coin thing and make a wish.we stayed there for sometime to get pictures and make that moment a memorable one. Although fountain was so crowded that we hardly got the space to click pictures. people were so happy and excited to do the coin thing.

The hippodrome-

the roman forum and circus Maximus is an ancient roman chariot racing stadium , which was reconstructed by Hollywood for “ben- hur”. It was the first and the last stadium in ancient Rome and its later empire.

 

Roman colosseum -

I have always seen the picture of colosseum in Shakespeare’s drama of Julius Caesar but to see it in person fills me with enthusiasm. roman colosseum is world famous.this is the largest amphitheatre with a Capacity of 80,000.variety of sport events held in it, including gladiators games where they fought one another and crowd roared. It was same as I saw in pictures. We spend some quality time there. It was quiet amazing and different experience at a place which is historic and romantic as well.

Triumphal arch of Constantine -

Next was the triumphal arch of Constantine, one of the most important commemorative monuments of antiquity. in its simplest form triumphal arch is consists of two piers which re connected by an arch. although we do not know much about it but guide available there tell you about the history of the monument.

Piazza Venezia –

Anyone visiting Rome sooner or later end up at this famous spot, like us. its a centre or Venice square in Rome located whee four major roads meet. through these four roads piazza Venezia is known for its chaotic traffic. so here how we end up in Rome.

 

Rome is all about the Monuments, Architecture, churches, Fountains and roman culture. we totally loved the city and its architecture. Trevi fountain, happy crowd, kind people, colosseum its history.

Rome is must visit not just once in a lifetime , Its a more like an experience than just a city.

Espacially where literature comes to life – Julius Caesar – We witnessed many spots especially the spot where he was stabbed !! It felt hard to believe that its not a fiction but a reality
