Yesterday after I posted I went back and did the Colosseum. Since I already had the dual ticket from the Forum I was able to skip most of the horrendous line!
Later in the evening I made it to the Trevi Fountain.
Rome is just mobs of people. It’s hard to even take a picture of anything.
Something random from my walk home:
Today I went to the catacombs. What an ordeal. I was told you can only buy bus tickets at the tobacco shops. Ok, so once I got to the bus stop, all of the tobacco shops in a 2-3 block radius were closed. Wtf. The bus driver refused to sell me one. Eventually a young German dude gave me his ticket. I hope he has good karma! But I was hesitant to get on the bus if I couldn’t get a return ticket. After arguing with the driver for a few minutes, an old woman came up and gave me an unused return ticket. Thank god for the kindness of strangers! I still paid her for the ticket though.
Ok, so I got to the catacombs.
No pictures allowed so I have nothing good to show you. Bummer.
Back to Open Baladin since they have fast wifi and good beers.
