They didn't seem so bad. We didn't see any of the young women being pestered by Italian guys at any of the sites or in the metro. Now the people trying to sell you things or begging for money on the other hand - those seem to be getting more aggressive in EuropeItalian guys are lying in wait for pretty young INGORANA Amerian girls, and will (a) approach smooth as hell, (b) from the wall as she struts past on the cobblestones they will grab breasts, (c) SEEm exotic...they're not!
Of course they are different but that doesn't mean one area can't be more interesting than the other and that doesn't mean I found the Colosseum uninteresting. My wife isn't a catacombs type of person and we didn't end up making it to the Baths because we were enjoying the Forum enough we wanted to spend more time wandering aroundNot a fair assesment because they are completely different . You have to look at the colloseum as a unique architecture that has been copied even up to this date while the roman forum is sort of a community built where everyone gathers. Did you check out the bath and the catacombs?
You can never get enough of rome in one trip. The vatican alone is a trip in itself.
