Colosseum: Gladiators' Battleground

I can't forget the moment I stepped on the ground of this historic Flavian Amphitheatre. I thought I'm hearing the loud voices of spectators around the arena whose watching gladiators fight for their lives. 

Colosseum was constructed 70-72AD. It is found at the heart of Piazza del Colosseo (Rome, Italy). The seating capacity of this elliptical amphitheatre is 50,000 spectators. Imagine how big is the place? This place is one of the popular tourist spots in Rome. I suggest that if you plan to go there, book your tickets online. This is to avoid the long queue and the big disappointment of not getting inside. 

Colosseum admission fee:
Full ticket - €18.00
EU reduced ticket - €13.50 (available only for European citizens aged between 18 and 25) 
EU complimentary ticket- €6.00 (available only for EU citizens aged above 65 and under 18)

Mid March - end March: 9 AM - 5.00 PM

  1. Gladiator's, that is a place the hubby would love to visit! I wish I could visit it in person too....blessed week to you, :)

  2. Great information and picture.

  3. I would love to see this place some day :) My sister went there the other year. Thanks for the info :)

  4. A place that my wife dreams to see. Hope I can get her there. a very historic Roman architecture.

  5. This reminds me of the movie that hubby and I watched last month!

  6. oh, one of the best places I would love to go..wish to visit this place someday.

  7. my friend just visited this place and she said she enjoyed it a lot because it is quieter, and therefore, she had so much time to compose her pictures. hopefully, i could see this sometime too.

  8. Wow! I love to see that in person maybe someday or in my dream na lang.

  9. I haven't had the chance to step into a real gladiators' battleground. This must have been quite an experience.

  10. Would definitely love to visit this place!

    One of the great architecture of the old times but lots of blood spilled for mere entertainment. I am glad that we are not that brutal now but it somehow evolved to a different level like in boxing and MMA that people still get hurt for entertainment.

  11. wow! glad to know that you have memories of the historic spots on earth...

  12. That was probably the one of the best experience and travel being in that historical place. nice picture.

  13. yeah gladiator..reminds me of maximus..sad..kasama to sa wishlist kong pupuntahan if given enough budget..

Love and Marriage

Being married for more than thirteen years does not make me an expert to relationship and family. But it is certain that those years made me the better person I am now and I hope that it is the same with my husband. I personally believe that keeping your marriage healthy, sparkling and smooth boils down to open communication and plain understanding. Aside from these two factors, there are other ways to keep you tied up to the man or woman you say "I Do". According to  Merriam- Webster  Dictionary, "Marriage is  the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law". But it is actually more than that. Time, effort, love, affection, acceptance, faithfulness and sincerity goes with marriage. If you are just starting a wonderful married life and you want to keep it till you are both old, you may want to consider the following ways to keep your happy lives together. Put Jesus Christ in
