Day 7 – The Last Day

Today we have a lot to do.  It’s our last day in Rome and have to see the Colosseum and the Vatican.  And then dinner tonight at La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali, which is owned by a friend of my cousins, Jeff and Sue Smith.

We opted to go for a guided tour of the Colosseum rather than wait the 1.5 hours for a ticket. I figured for the extra $20, it was worth it… and did we ever make the right decision.  In about 5 minutes we were on the tour, AND we had an archeologist as our guide.  Yikes!  Federica was so informative about the whys and hows and whens of everthing.  I’ve been through the Colosseum a couple of times.  This was hands down the best tour ever!

Afterwards, we were handed off to Camilla for the tour of Palatine Hill and the Forum.  Camilla was also very learned on the topics at hand, but she also does private shopping tours or general tours of the city. So if anyone is interested, just contact me.  I’ll get you in touch.
