On Monday 9th, almost all the students of fourth ESO went to Rome. During these four days we visited a lot of monuments: Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, Piazza Navona,Vaticani (Musei Vaticani and Basilica S. Pietro), Colosseo, Arco di Constantino, Roman Forum, Villa Burgese, Bocca della Verità, Piazza Spagna, Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II and some old churches. To visit all of these places we had to walk a lot because the underground was too expensive but I don’t regret about that; because seeing incredible monuments older than 500 years, more or less, was very wonderful.
For me, the most amazing monument was the Coliseum because it’s very big and when you’re inside, if you think that Romans walked in the same place you are, it’s very exciting. The Coliseum is an amphitheatre of the period of the Roman Empire. It was built in the first century a. C. and it’s located in the centre of the city of Rome. It had a capacity for 50 000 people and the Emperor and the senators, were the ones who were near the arena, and the poorest people were sitting farther. Inside the Coliseum it took place gladiator fights and public spectacles.
