Prince Harry became a bit of a tourist attraction himself when he stopped by the Colosseum in Rome on Monday.

Casually dressed in a blue-and-white checkered shirt and a pair of jeans, the 29-year-old royal checked out the historic landmark along with other sightseeing folks.

Harry, who reportedly paid his own admission and that of his staff, was shown the Colosseum by guide Laura Cignoni.

The visit came just one day after Harry, wearing full military dress, went to the Commonwealth war cemetery in Monte Cassino.

While there, he joined veterans and dignitaries from around the world to commemorate the sacrifice made by Commonwealth and Allied troops in Italy during World War II.

Between January and May 1944, the Battle of Monte Cassino saw some of the fiercest fighting of the entire war, as the Allied troops attempted to drive German forces from the town of Cassino and the heights which surround it.

Harry's visit to Italy comes on the heels of his trip to Estonia last week, where he made an official appearance at Freedom Square in Tallinn to meet with Estonian Minister for Defense Sven Mikser.

During the visit, Harry laid a wreath at the War of Independence memorial and observed a minute of silence to pay tribute to those who died in Estonia's War of Independence, which occurred almost 100 years ago.
