Coloseum

There is one thing I should have learned on this trip: Don't assume you can do sight seeing during the evening. I had a special shot of the Colosseum in mind, from the top of the Altare della Patria during sundown. So I went there, in time for the sundown, and tried to get up the Altare della Patria, they have a special lift there so you can see Rome in 360°. But while climbing the stairs I got stopped by a security woman who told me that they're closing and I can come back tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock. I tried to explain the thing with the light and the golden hour and things but the only thing she could offer me is comming back tomorrow and staying untill 7, which is just when the sundown starts. This one is a decent shot, but totally different than what I wanted in the first place.
