Waiting for Colosseum

Colosseum, Rome, Italy

See the line? We were waiting there for an about hour before getting in the Colosseum. Fun thing is that we already had tickets so the line we were in was even shorter than the line for those not having tickets. People are crazy. There was this Finnish couple in front of us in the queue so at least we had someone to talk with. All of us agreed that there was surprisingly few Finns in Rome but it was probably because of the unbearable heat. No one had warned the four of us that going to Rome in August would be death for us who have used to under 30°C summers.

I didn’t love Rome

Rome, Italy

There is ruins in Rome literally everywhere. At first it is amazing. The city is like one big museum with things to discover on every corner of the narrow streets. But after being in Rome for two or three days all of this may be too much. You can never have enough time to see everything and because there is history everywhere it just blends in to one big mess and you stop caring too much. Colosseum nice, Vatican super nice, some random historical building nice, just nice nothing else.

And that’s why I didn’t like Rome. It was nice experience but during my visit I didn’t see the soul of this city. I felt like it was one big theater kept up for the tourists visiting there.

With love,
