Has anyone seen them all? I've seen one, the Colosseum in Rome, and it was very impressive. Full of cats though, I mean hundreds of them.

I've seen four: Petra, the Colosseum, Chichen Itza, and Machu Picchu. Petra is a very impressive site. Most people are only familiar with the "Treasury" and don't realize that it's much more expansive. I wasn't too overwhelmed by the Colosseum, but Chichen Itza is something to behold. Machu Picchu is really all about the view and the feeling of being on top of everything.

Angkor Wat should have been in there.

Chichen Itza is it for me, but it is truly awesome. Petra looks amazing. Hopefully the History Channel or something like that does a show on the new 7.

I've seen teh Colosseum and Chichen Itza.

I figured that St. Peter's in Rome should have had at least an outside shot...that place is phenomenal.

BTW, teh Pyramids of Egypt are also on there, mainly due to the Egyptian gov't getting pissed off about it.
