The Colosseum

Yesterday my wife purchased flights from Portland, Oregon, to Paris, France. We intend on making a short stop (a day or two) there in order to go to the place that matters much, much more to me: Rome, Italy! Like the Apostle Paul who wrote “I planned many times to come to you” to the church in Rome (1.13), so I done as regards going to Rome itself. It appears to be something that will actually happen in just a few months!

I know I want to see the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum, the Palantine Hill, and the Vatican with places like St. Peter’s Basilica and St. Peter’s Square. We should be there for several days so I will get the opportunity to see much of the city and her sites.

If you have ever been to Rome what are some things you would say that I must see, whether I have listed them already or not? Is there a restaurant I must take my wife? Is there a food dish we must taste? Let me know.

My wife went to Paris last year to visit her sister so she will be my guide to the sites there. We have never been to Rome, so tell me all you know!
