Things to do during the day:
If you are a lover of arts, be sure to visit this place. It is Rome’s most significant monument built in the early years by Romans. To date, it is still the largest amphitheater ever to exist though most of it is a shadow of its previous stature. It is still every inch as beautiful, and the historical stories behind it are even more profound.
You have the option of buying an audiobook or hiring a guard to explain to you the complex tales the place has endured from acting as mine, to hosting a slave auction. The view is great for pictures, and many movie scenes have even been shot there. During the sunset, the colors of the rays reflect beautifully on the brown bricks of the remains.
This is a collection of small chapels under the church of Santa Maria Della Cinceziine Dei capuchin. Though small, the sight will blow your mind. If you always wanted to interact with mummies, this is your chance. It earned the name Bone church because it is decorated mainly with bones. They are arranged in beautiful patterns; some of which are made into large structures which hang on the walls. Creepy much! The guides are amiable and will make sure you enjoy your experience. Make sure you dress well for the visit as indecently dressed people are not allowed on the supposedly Holy Grounds.
