This selfie at the Colosseum was taken the last time I visited Italy in 2015. If you are going to visit the Colosseum for the first time I would highly recommend that you take the metro to see it, especially for your first time. The way the view creeps up when you walk out of the station is something out of this world. Make sure to visit during the evening hours so the sun is hitting the Colosseum just right to take the kind of picture above. There is a small cafe that you one can find after taking the stairs where you can enjoy a nice Italian Cafe while you take in the sights.
