Nalynn and I spent the day at the Roman Forum, the Coliseum and Palatine Hill. We started the day by learning Rome's Subway system This has saved us a great deal of walking and is very user friendly (unlike the European key board I am trying to use at the hotel computer.We did however do a lot of waking over the Via Sacreda, the 2000 year old Roman Road running through the forum and Palatine Hill. Nalynn and I had planned this trip in advance and downloaded some walking tours by Rick Steves on our phones. This allowed us to take a tour on our own and gain a true perspective of the history of the monuments that we saw. These audio guides are free and I can highly recommend them. Attached are pictures from the day.

I thought the area around the Coliseum was more built up. Thankfully they do not have condos overlooking it.
