Day 3: Today is the third day in Rome. Today was the day that we went to the Colosseum. When we first approached the Colosseum, it was breathtaking. Learning about the history and looking at all the different sculptures and paintings was something that I will never forget.  After the Colosseum, we got to visit the Pantheon and that was another amazing event. Later, we all shared in an amazing dinner in Rome and got to bond as we enjoyed each other's company. Today was an amazing day that I feel blessed to say I got to share with some amazing professors and amazing classmates. 

 

Day 4: We begin our day early this morning eating an awesome breakfast! Smiles are on everyone's faces! We toured the Vatican, a state within a country. It was filled with tons of history. Next, we visited the Sistine Chapel, where there are many famous paintings. Being able to see Saint Peters Square and walk through Saint Peter’s Basilica was a once in a lifetime religious experience. Our final tour was at the University of Rome. We learned the school only consists of students who want to study Sports Medicine. It has 55 different sports and a awesome soccer stadium! All in all Day 4 was a great success!!! :)
