"Do your homework!" Colosseum Tip by Jenniflower
Colosseum, Rome: 68 reviews and 75 photos
Favorite thing: Before going on holiday, we always do a lot of researching and homework prior to our trip.
Since being on VT, we naturally look for advice and tips on this site.
We like to know a certain amount about the area we are going to, the culture, the history etc. It puts one on the right footing I think, and can be very handy.
One example was the coliseum.
What one learns at school can hardly do it justice.
We did research on the history of it, the timeline.. and it changed over the years and had different uses. How it has been built and rebuilt and the stone, wood and other materials used. And why.
There is always a reason why things get made the way they do, and I would rather know why. It helps one appreciate the craftmanship and skill of those times.
