Part of our admission to Colosseum, we get to visit this huge site full of ancient ruins of Rome.

Free admission into the museum, spectacular views from the roof top.  This is just before the thunderstorm rolled in where we got drenched trying to make our way back to the Metro in the dark.

Every corner you turn, there is a piece of art work.  A spectacular collection!

Many marble statues rescued from the site.

First port day, we rented a car and drove to Olympia.  A 30 minute  drive.  Many marble statues rescued from the site but in bad condition.

Some guys like to strut their stuff!

It looks far from where we are, but it was a nice walk up to the top!
