O.k. lets try get into  the Colosseum. But no way the crowd is hours ahead you. You can hire a tour guide for probably 10 x the official fee instead of cueing to get in faster. However Inside you will see impressive stone architecture featured for 50.000 spectators - and the actual crowd. Its not easy to gather an image in Rome without people on it you don't want. B.T.W. My actual wide angle lense is not very good...
