Feel like a Gladiator

What was it like to be a gladiator, standing in the middle of the Colosseum in the heydays of ancient Rome? Can you imagine how it felt to be surrounded by a delirious audience of 50,000 people, covered in dust from your recent combat, waiting excitedly for the emperor’s verdict?

Even today, you can feel the strange energy when you enter the Colosseum. The same energy that compels thousands of people from all over the world to visit this centerpiece of ancient Rome.

This is even more true now that a full restoration has brought the Colosseum back to its true splendor.

A close-up with Michelangelo

The Sistine Chapel, decorated by Michelangelo, is the ultimate destination of visitors to the Vatican.

It’s no wonder that many have booked their visit months in advance.

Pope Sixtus IV was responsible for commissioning the masterpiece from this master.

His frescoes on the ceiling and end walls, depicting the Creation and the Last Judgment were created over many years, from 1508 to 1541.

Other artists whose work adorns the walls include Raphael, Perugino, Botticelli, and Ghirlandaio.

And so, what was meant to be simply a new chapel for the conclave, became one of the greatest works of art of all time.

Lose yourself in Rome

The best way to absorb the true spirit of a city like Rome is to lose yourself in its streets, by visiting shops down back streets, and venturing into areas off the main tourist routes.

It is worth checking out the shops along Via Condotti, having a gelato by the Spanish Steps at Piazza di Spagna, breathing in the exuberance of Piazza Navona, and of course throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain.

But it’s also worth following your nose and wandering the alleys of Monti, the area between Via Cavour and Via Nazionale, or browsing the vintage shops around Campo de’ Fiori.

If you want to venture a little further, head to the area of Trastevere and find an outdoor table at one of the small squares for a romantic dinner and breathe in that Roman magic.
