Prince Harry took part in a tour of the Colosseum in Rome yesterday as well as visiting a number of other tourist spots before heading to the airport.

Prince Harry visited the Colosseum in Italy yesterday. The flame-haired royal surprised a group of American and Canadian tourists at the historical landmark as he joined them for a guided tour before ending his two-day visit to Rome.

'It was the highlight of our visit. It was crazy. It was unbelievable. Better than the Colosseum'

Harry's guide explained the history of the famous building - which was built between 70 and 80 AD and hosted gladiatorial combats, animal hunts and shows for the Roman emperors - to his royal client.

The Prince received a welcome similar to that of a Roman ruler himself as his appearance at the Colosseum prompted cheers from eager-eyed travellers who spotted him from the higher galleries of the ancient stadium.

Speaking about their encounter with Harry, The Quenneville family from Canada told ITV News: "It was the highlight of our visit. It was crazy. It was unbelievable. Better than the Colosseum."

Following his visit to the iconic building Harry stopped off at a number of other tourist spots including the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and Aventine Hill before making his way to the airport.

The 29-year-old Prince was in the capital city to attend a commemorative service for fallen and veteran soldiers from New Zealand who fought in the World War II battle at Monte Cassino.
