After the Colosseum tour, we'll walk over to the Roman Forum, one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. We won't enter there but I'll tell you everything about the political struggles and the gods of the ancient city. Next stop is Via del Corso, the main street in the historical center of Rome. Today, the street is a popular place for the passeggiata", the evening stroll for the populace to be seen and to see others. On our way around the city, we will also stop for a coffee. I will give you more insights about all of the places we already visited. This is also a great moment to ask for further recommendations. But that’s not all.
