"While the Mighty Overwhelm. . ." Colosseum Tip by mrclay2000

Colosseum, Rome: 68 reviews and 75 photos

  Arch of Constantine and Coliseum over a work site
by mrclay2000

Favorite thing: While your eyes dazzle before such monuments as the Arch of Constantine and the ruins of the Coliseum, you might not notice all the excavation sites in Rome. Modern scholars and archaelogists continually uncover or unearth relics of Rome's illustrious past. Sometimes the sites are marked as a 'keep off' area and others are fenced off, so be mindful of such places and watchful as well -- markers don't always advertise the latest finds for public exhibits.
