My treat at the end of the day came in the form of a bowl of authentic Italian gelato. It was so deliciously creamy and smooth. Like a rightcheous blend between yogurt and ice cream.
My first day in Roma was a complete success! I exchanged my currency, ate lunch, then it was off to Il Colosseo. I read in my trusty travel guide that the Colosseum is 2,000 years old and only one third of it is still standing. I did not stop to have a look inside but the view from the outside was still amazing.
