I was surprised that the lines weren't longer to get tickets but maybe because we were there late in the afternoon, there weren't as many people. Since I had never been inside, I decided to pay for the audio tour and I'm glad that I did. It was really interesting to learn about the history of certain areas, actually know what certain things are and hear about the hierarchy that existed when the Colosseum was in use. Fascinating!
Before we went to dinner, we headed to Villa Borghese Park which overlooks Rome. My friend wanted to see it at sunset which was really beautiful. It looked like a really nice park so if I'm ever back in Rome, I will definitely take more time to wander around instead of just going for photos.
