Photos: President Rouhani gets tour of Rome’s ancient Colosseum


On Wednesday, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani got a guided tour of Rome’s most iconic monument, the Colosseum. Rouhani and the Iranian delegation spent about a half-hour at the arena, receiving a guided tour by Italian Culture Minister Dario Franceschini.

While tourists were cleared from the Colosseum complex when U.S. President Barack Obama visited last year, sightseers milled about as usual while Rouhani took his tour. Bodyguards, however, kept them at a distance from the Iranian leader and his delegation.
