By March 21, 2014

Follow me on:

On March 26 and 27, President Obama will be in Italy as part of his European tour. Obama plans to meet with Pope Francis at the Vatican and to tour the Colosseum in Rome. Because of security issues, the Colosseum and streets around it will be closed to the public on March 27, according to Wanted in Rome News. During his visit to Rome, Obama will also meet with the Italian President, Napolitano, and Italy's Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi. President Obama and his wife, Michelle, met with Pope Benedict XVI in 2009 and Michelle and her daughters toured the Colosseum during that visit.
