What really blew me away though was the Forum and Palatine Hill area. Because I could sort of picture the Colosseum I wasn't so surprised by the structure. It was the sheer amount of structures and the quality of the structural remains in the Forum and Palatine Hill that shocked me. Luckily, my Mom had brought the Rick Steve's Guide along with her, which provided a map, photos, and explanations of many of the structural remains. So cool. When you visit, bring the guide - it really brings everything to life!
I'm linking up with Fresh Face Friday.
