Book Research Trip to Italy Part 2

More pictures from Rome...

VIP Colosseum Underground Tour with Roman Forum & Palatine Hill: When I first entered the Colosseum, I was blown away by the size. It was interesting to hear the history and to discover that most of the destruction occurred because of recycling the materials to use in other buildings. 

Tour of the Borghese Gallery:  The gallery houses a vast and diverse collection of sculptures and paintings produced by masters such as Bernini, Canova, Caravaggio, Raphael and Titian. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, and I loved hearing about the history of the artists and their paintings. 


Exclusive Caesar’s Forum at Night Laser & Light Show: This was a sophisticated light and laser show and brought the ruins of the Forum to life – absolutely fascinating! (Pictures were not allowed during the show.)  

Rome Night Segway Tour: This was 2.5 hour tour of Rome’s landmarks, cruising by the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Temple of Hadrian. And was a blast!

Yep, I look a bit goofy, but I had so much fun! 
Tomorrow I'll share pictures from our visit to Florence.
