Holy Floor

The marble that was once seating and walls in the Colosseum was taken and used elsewhere in Rome. Carla, our guide in Rome, told us that when we visited the Vatican we would no longer feel sad that the Colosseum was destroyed in this way.

The next morning we entered the Vatican and immediately our eyes were drawn to all of the statues, the frescoes, the paintings. Antonella, our guide in the Vatican reminded us that the most underappreciated but incredibly valuable part of the Vatican was under our feet.

Carla was right.
