Today we visited the Roman Forum, the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. While walking on the roads that witnessed the likes of Virgil, Ovid and Cicero, the students explored the historic sites through Latin texts.
Visiting the Colosseum at sunset was one of the highlights of the day for many. It set the scene for some truly beautiful photographs.

Translation: “… wherever we go we step into history”
Student Reflection by Anto Clarke, Gr. 11
Seeing all the ancient buildings and statues that we read about in class in person really contextualized a lot of what we all know about Roman life.
