When in Rome!

Ciao!

Recently the UDM SOA and UDM Open Enrollment students took a Three Day trip to Rome. Rome offered the student just about every tourist attraction that you can think of, which is in no way bad. Everything from the Colosseum to the Baths of Diocletian, which has now been converted into a church. Being  jammed full of Ancient Artifacts, buildings, forums, and even monuments Rome will probably be a two-part blog exhibition.

What seemed to be the main attraction for the students and every tourist known to man was obviously the Flavian Amphitheatre Colosseum, followed by the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill. Each attraction had its own unique aura of history that came along with it. For example, Palatine¬†Hill offered an almost eerie feeling of “this is where it all began” whereas the Roman Forum definitely offered an economical perspective on Ancient Rome.

Overall, Rome has so much to offer that pictures and words do not do it justice. If you really want to be inspired and experience Rome you need to go there and see it for yourself like UDM SOA did.
