We headed closer to the equator on today's drive day, landing ourselves in historical Rome. It is amazing to see the Roman ruins scattered across the city's landscape and we have really enjoyed learning about their controversial history. We have learnt so much on this trip that we believe we should be claiming it all on tax!
Our guided tour of the Colosseum added to our extensive knowledge that was gained from watching Gladiator on the bus.
We also saw many other sites on a walk around the city, such as the Pantheon and the famous love fountain.
We have just checked into our hotel that gets 5 stars on the Megando scale. Hot water was something that we did not get to experience in Florence. I guess you really do get to live it up 'when in Rome'!
