After a rainy night in Rome, the sun rises beautifully at the Colosseum, the ground dries up and lovely people emerge. What a beautiful way to start the day. This place was so incredibly overwhelming. When you think about everything that happened here and being lucky enough to walk right in the middle of it all was a feeling like no other. I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to visit this place. Hint: Get the tickets that let you skip the lines and make sure to go on the special tour that allows you to go underground where all the gladiators waited before a “game”. Otherwise you can only see them from above and it’s not the same to be honest. Who would you explore it with? 🇮🇹 @ig_italia 📷 @traveling.lens

St Peter’s Square

St Peter’s Square is located at the front of the Vatican, the square is actually a circular plaza and is framed by two huge sets of colonnades, four columns deep with beautiful statues of various religious figures and previous popes, standing on top.


Revisiting my old photos and I find myself smiling from ear to ear remembering the memories. It was a fine winter day when I visited this place. I remember how I almost got scammed, how I had to come back twice because the first visit got me all dizzy due to the number of people in the square of St. Peter’s Basilica. There was too many people I didn’t even know where to start to queue! 😂 . The next day, I went straight to one of the offices that offered a tour to #VaticanMuseum, #SistineChapel, and an entry to #stpetersbasilica without queuing. Mind you, the queue to Vatican Museum was as long as 7 minutes walk! I counted! I laughed and waved at those peasants who had to queue for more than 2 hours as I walked straight into the museum #somuchwin #byerakyatjelata (omg so shallow but whatevs 🤣) . #vatican #italy #aMrazingItaly . P.S: i’m traveling again after a week break! Can you guess where I’m heading this time? 😁😁😁
