Rome in black and white

{ Rome, Italy - May 2011 }

What is the first picture you have in mind when someone mentioned Rome? I bet that it would be a photo of the Colosseum. I won't be surprised if it is one of the most recognised sites in the world! Right next to the Colosseum is the Roman Forum which had been the centre of the Roman lives. There were temples, basilica, buildings, residences and streets. As there were many standing structures, it was easy to imagine how some of the buildings looked like almost 3000 years ago. Yes, 3000 years ago. I could not even comprehend how old some of these buildings are.

I won't be able to express these magnificent sites with words, and so, I will let the photos tell the story. And sometimes, you don't even need colours.

Forum Romanum

However, if you plan to spend some time in Rome visitng the many sites, to get the Roma Pass. As the pass includes free entry to the first 2 sites visited, do use it for the Colosseum.
