POTD Europe 2011 - Day 2 Rome

Picking something from day 2 was even harder than day 1. There was Trastevere, ancient Rome, and the nightlife of Piazza Navone and Campo di Fiore.

But in the end, it has to be the Colosseum. It's just too impressive and unique.

Okay, so I've seen ancient Roman ruins elsewhere, and certainly the arena in Orange was impressive, but the Colosseum in Rome, so named because of the presence, long gone, of the gigantic colossus of Nero which stood in front, was a highlight that can't be found anywhere else.
