There’s not much I can say about Rome’s iconic Colosseum that hasn’t already been said hundreds of times over. The graceful, curving walls of this atmospheric amphitheatre have been filling visitors with awe for almost two thousand years. Thankfully, a trip to the Colosseum usually comes with less bloodshed and horror these days!

Inside the amphitheatre, where people and animals once fought to the death: I think I see some of their ghosts!
Thankfully, the greatest peril I faced was being knocked off the railing by an unsuspecting tourist
Circles and Curves abound inside this architectural marvel
