My favorite day in Rome.
My renewed obsession with all things Roman began a month or so before our trip when I discovered the HBO series ROME. I couldn’t wait to see the Forum and the Palatine where all of the business of the Republic took place. I had done a bit of research on Slow Travel for tour companies and had originally settled on Context Travel, a bit pricey but it sounded just like the tour I was looking for on the Roman Forum. I waited too long to book our tour and they were full but the kindly referred me to Through Eternity tours. This was the only company they would recommend so I phoned them up while we were in Rome and they had a spot for us for their Saturday morning tour. Perfect! It was going to cost us 27Euro per person and we were told to meet in front of the entrance to the Palatine Hill just beyond the Arch of Constantine. You can buy your ticket to the Collosseum here. This ticket allows you entrance to the Palatine, Forum and the Collosseum. It will also allow you to bypass the long line to purchase your ticket at the Collosseum. Use your Roma Pass here for sure! The cost is 13Euro (I think). The tour with Through Eternity was fantastic. Grace Lyn was our guide and I can’t recommend her enough. The group was kept small, approx. 7 people. She took us through the Colosseum and the Forum. She also recommended the restuarant, Giggetto, located right next the ancient fish market in the Jewish Ghetto. This was one of our favorite restuarants. Expensive but worth the money.
I'm just a tad happy to be here.
Is this not the most beautiful tree you have ever seen?
