Modern Reenactors work the crowds at the Colosseum

Although I didn't get to see any gladiators in costume near the Colosseum, I did see this fellow dressed in legionary regalia. These "professional" Roman soldiers and a fellow dressed as a Roman senator lure tourists over for a rather expensive photo session (I was told it was something like 35 EUR). I took this clandestine shot with my 12X zoom lens.

We had a wonderful lunch at a sidewalk cafe across the street from the Colosseum. I had an absolutely delicious tortellini with sweet cream sauce that was exquisite and Pat had a creamy spaghetti carbonara which we topped off with real Italian tiramisu.
