If “all roads lead to Rome”, I’m guessing that this ancient path in front of the Colosseum is one of those roads.
If it’s your first visit to this ancient city, the Colosseum cannot be missed. (Although truthfully, if I find myself in Rome, this is the first thing I want to see. For me, it’s just too iconic to ever miss.)
Want to skip the line to go inside? Buy your ticket across the street at the Forum (another worthwhile wandering spot), where lines can be shorter and the ticket gains entry into both.
Daughter was searching for some of Rome’s wild cats, who make their homes amongst the Forum ruins. I’m always struck by the weight of history in this 3,000 year old city, where stumbling upon an ancient architectural ruin is common.
