A visit to the Roman Forum and the Colosseum is a highlight of any visit to Rome. The history of the place makes this a must see. And even thought it is not much here photographically, it still provides some opportunities if one looks for them.
A night shot of the Arch of Constantine and the Colosseum (Flavian Amphitheater) in Rome, Italy. It was amazing, but you have to be patient to get a shot without people.

We took a Viator tour of the Vatican Museums and also was able to go into the Vatican without waiting in Saint Peter's Square in line. The place is absolutely an art lovers dream, and if you are Roman Catholic, it is the place to visit. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to see Pope Francis ;-(
A recounting of my recent trip to Rome with my family. As it was a family trip, it was more focused on family activities than photography. But I did manage to take some photographs that I liked!
