A visit to the Colosseum is at the top of the list for any first time visitor to Rome. This was my second trip to Rome but my first visit to the Colosseum. The Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are next to the Colosseum and your admission ticket coveres all three places.
You can read about my visit to the Colosseum on my travel blog Southern Blue Traveler.
I have added inforamtion that may be helpful before you arrive and give you an idea of what to expect when you get there.
Senglea is the smallest of the Three Cities in the Cottonera. It is situated on a peninsula protruding into the Grand Harbor, facing the charming walled city of Valletta. I had never heard of Senglea, Malta before my visit there last week.
We were on Airbnb looking for places to stay and we ran across this amazing apartment, in a beautiful location, and at a great price. The apartment was beyond our expectations (you can see the apartment HERE) and the neighborhood was perfect.
Come explore the neighborhood with me at Southern Blue Traveler.
Valletta was built by the knights of St John on a tiny peninsula. It retains it’s 16th century elegance and has been described as on of the most concentrated historic areas in the world. The history alone makes it a place worth visiting but Valletta has so much more to offer. The people are friendly, the food is amazing, the shopping is great, and the scenery is awe inspiring.
The small and picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk (pronounced marsa-schlock – meaning Southern Port) is located in the South Eastern part of Malta.
When searching for sites to visit while in Malta, Marsaxlokk came up in every search. I knew the moment I saw photos of the colorful, traditional Maltese fishing boats I had to see it for myself.
