Vestal Virgins

When in Rome, it’s best to travel with someone who is equally into History & ancient stories as much as you.

Lauren and I were amazed that with our Oxford Bodelian Cards we could see the Colleseum and the Roman forum for 7.50 Euro! It took us awhile to find the Forum, but once we did we could have spent 5 hours exploring.

Our favorite Ancient Roman obsession, is the role of the Vestal Virgins who were chosen at age 6 to tend the Holy Fire of Rome for 30 years. We loved exploring where these
honored ladies use to live and speculating what their lives were like all those years ago…
