Sunday Snapshot: Early Morning at the Colosseum

Colosseum at dawn, Rome

I’m far from being the first person to fall in love with the food, the language, and the architecture of Rome, but I fell very hard nonetheless.  It’s one of only a few places that Brent and I still continuously talk about returning to one day. We went to visit the Colosseum early in the morning, hoping to beat the crowds. Although we didn’t succeed in finding that quiet moment (I suspect there may never be one), the Colosseum did look particularly lovely in  the early morning sun.

What are some of your favourite  places in Rome?

    I love catching these monumental places at, or before, sunrise. The atmosphere is completely different and it's much easier to get a sense of the place and its history.

      I agree, Sophie. There's kind of a quiet in the air at that time of day, and I think it allows me to get a better feel for a place.
