    This is a photograph that we captured of the world famous Roman Colosseum.

    Our Walks of Italy tour guide told us that nearly 4,000,000 people visit this structure each year to visit the arena where the famous Roman Gladiators risked their lives in front of 50,000 cheering spectators.

    The structure in the right foreground is the Arch of Constantine (315 AD) built to commemorate the victory of Constantine I’s victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312.

    In the foreground to the left is an ongoing archeological excavation where they are finding fascinating structures underneath the Palatine Hill from which I shot this photograph.

    Bio: The Roaming Boomers is a luxury travel blog spotlighting experience, adventure, learning and exploration. David and Carol Porter, Michigan natives who retired to Scottsdale, started the project in 2008 after the market collapse took away almost half of the savings they’d carefully put together to be able to retire at age 50. The couple combined their years of entrepreneurship with a love of travel and set off to see if they could build success. The Roaming Boomers do occasionally accept free lodging, food and other gifts, but disclose that in their posts. They hope to build an audience of Baby Boomers who join them vicariously on their adventures. But they also hope to instill their love of travel so that the coming bubble of 79 million Boomers will join them.
