Piazza del Colosseo, 00184 Rome
I began my travel through this iconic city with on the most iconic places, not only in Rome, but also in the rest of the world. The Colosseum is right in the center of the city, which itself speaks greatly of its importance. Also known as the Flavius Amphitheater, it is the largest of its kind in the world. This monument is hailed as the epitome of Roman Architecture and engineering. This UNESCO World Heritage site, housed around 50,000 to 80,000 people in its time and was used for entertainment purposes in the early medieval era (remember Gladiator?) The monument is gigantic with four floors and each floor having around 80 arches each. Due to earthquakes much of the monument has been destroyed, but it still spills splendor and awe. If you think the Colosseum looks magnificent during the day, be ready to be blown away by its night view. The monument lights up the cityscape of Rome and looks like a jewel on the street!

Apart from the food, this tour will leave you with immense knowledge of the culture and history behind Italy's seaside city. Your first stop for food will be at the 19th century Galleria Umberto I, where you'll be subjected to the sheer delight that is the warm pastry, sfogliatella.The walk continues through colourful markets dotted with local vendors, and their stalls and shelves decked with classic Neapolitan street food. A speciality here is the seasonal 'o pére e ‘o musso (cold meat with salt and lemon) and the small pizzas or pizzettes.
