A Day in Rome

Our last day in Italy was spent in Rome.

Knowing it would be impossible to see everything we wanted to see in Rome, we decided on a walking route that took us to just a few of the highlights of Rome. It ended up being a long loop, but it was nice to enjoy walking through some of the side streets of Rome that weren't completely bombarded with tourists.

While in Rome, I decided that I hate being a tourist. In general, they can be a rather annoying group of people. 


La Piazza Spagna


La Fontana Trevi




Throwing our coins in, ensuring a return to Italy.








Marc caught this guy taking a photo from his hotel window of the Trevi Fountain. I think he had a much better view than us.


Just another random photo.








The Pantheon

We stopped to enjoy some gelato on the steps of an old building, and captured some Italians going about their daily activities.

Some young artists, sketching a tower in front of the building.


A guy on his bike.


 A conversation that looks very interesting.


A stylish Italian woman.

A large Museum - I think.






The ruins of Rome.



The Colosseum.





And, a chalk artist on a sidewalk in Rome. Pretty amazing stuff.




And, that is a re-cap of our trip to Italy. There are a few stories that I haven't recounted yet... still deciding how much I want to embarrass myself.

Thank you for posting these. I spent three days in Rome (it's actually the city where I realized I was actually head over heels in love with the young man I would marry ten months later) and found it to be a city that was so surreal it was almost magical. Someday, I hope to return with husband in tow and relive the magic again.

Thank you again. I needed a mental escape. :)

You want to embarrass yourself. A lot. So feel free to post those stories. ;)

I've been waiting for the posts about your trip. Well worth the wait, I loved reading about your trip and the pictures were like a mini vacation. Wow, I really have to go there someday.

what kills me is that we didn't know about throwing in the coins in the fountain and now I realize I blew it. Dang, I never ate so well in my life. I am so glad you had such a fun time. It has been fun seeing your picutres!

I am so glad you got to go back (I bet you threw those coins in before you left the last time...lucky)
