Today we went touring. We went to the Coloseum, the Vatican City, and the Spanish Steps. We also got to go to a Mass. The first place we went to go see was the Coloseum, the 2nd most visited sight in Italy. At the Coloseum people fought against people for entertainment, or animals that hadn’t been fed for weeks were put in the Coloseum with people. The match wasn’t over until one of the men (or animal) dies. After the Coloseum we went to the Vatican City. The Vatican is the smallest country in the world. Only about 800 people live there. The Pope lives there. The Vatican has many famous paintings and statues. The last place we went to was the Spanish Steps. The Spanish steps are the widest steps in Italy. A lost if artists go there for inspiration. And it’s nice just to sit down. In 2007, a drunk man drove his car down the Spanish Steps. Other than the steps being chipped, nothing was hurt. The man was arrested. It was a very long day. We started at 9:00 and ended at 5:00.
