I imagined the Colosseum to be bigger, but thinking back on it, it’s not the size that makes it grand, it’s the history of a different civilisation.polina.rocks Rome ColosseumA tour guide tried to convince us that we would have to queue for hours, however we managed to walk straight through. Don’t listen to tour guides – do your own research!
