At the end of my trip through Italy I spent 3 days in Rome, mostly exploring Rome on foot. I was especially interested in old Roman sites, like the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, etc.

The Historic Centre of Rome is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Rome with its abundant remnants of Roman times is another example of the many sites of Ancient Civilizations that I visited during my travels.
