While in Rome, you can enroll in gladiator
school and learn how to fight the ancient Romans. These slaves
were taught to fight and sometimes even won their freedom
through the vicious battles which were treated like a day
at the park by Roman families, who would bring their children
and a picnic lunch to the event. Within this city lie the
oldest galleries and monuments still standing today as a reminder
of the time when the Romans ruled their universe. There is
plenty of sightseeing and guided tours- the notorious Coliseum
was capable of seating over 50,000 spectators for the great
gladiator shows, where men would fight each other and wild
animals to the death. The structure was originally called
the Flavian Amphitheatre and was built on the site of Nero's
palace. Renamed the Coliseum for the colossal statute of Nero
nearby, this amphitheater is one of the most popular tourism
attractions in Rome.
When in Rome, eat as the Romans do. A Trattoria
is a small, family owned and operated restaurant which serves
the traditional food most families eat regularly. If you're
in the mood for something more formal, there are Ristorantes
(yes that is where we get the word "Restaurant")
or you can eat at the inn where you are staying, although
most of them offer the equivalent of appetizers and are better
known for their wine selections.
