Travel Journal: Sabers visit Eternal City with ITT

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany – The Arch of Constantine and the Coliseum are two familiar landmarks in Rome. The arch was dedicated in 315 A.D. to commemorate Constantine’s defeat of Maxentius in October 312. The Coliseum’s construction took about 9 years and was finished in 80 A.D. The Coliseum sat about 50,000 spectators who watched gladiatorial fights, mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, battle reenactments and dramas. Twenty-six service members and civilians booked a trip to Rome Dec. 21-25 with the 52nd Force Support Squadron’s Information, Tickets and Travel office. (USAF photo/Master Sgt. Kelley J. Stewart)
