Day Two: Roma Walk

Posted on Saturday, October 15th, 2005

Dave!I had another full day in Rome, but didn't want to risk the weather turning, so I decided to walk through some of the major sites while the sun was shining. After a pilgrimage to the Spanish Steps and the Hard Rock Cafe Rome, it was time to get started.

First a walk to the Trevi Fountain, which was crowded as always...

Trevi Fountain

Next up was The Pantheon, which is a remarkable architectural achievement considering it was built over 2000 years ago. Apparently, it's the oldest pagan temple left in the city (though it was unsurprisingly converted into a church at some point)...



After walking around the Piazza Navona, the day was wrapping up, so it was back towards the hotel and a walk through the Forum...



And back to the Colosseum...



The perfect end to a perfect day in the Eternal City!

    Rome has just worked its way higher up my list of places I. Must. Go.

    Your pictures are stunning! Between these and the China photos…green with envy here. And the weather there is definitely better than what you left behind in the Pacific NW. Have a great vacation.

  3. Wow, those were all so beautiful. I’m ashamed to admit that the first one made me think, “Oh yeah, I saw one just like that at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas!” But that’s only because I’ve never travelled anywhere else ๐Ÿ˜

    Thanks for letting me live vicariously through your pictures for a few days – honestly, I got choked up! As a Classics minor (the department was to small to offer a major) who has yet to see Rome, I’m insanely jealous!

    Happy vacationing!

    How were the kitties at the Colosseum? Loved your photos of the one sleeping in the sun last time.

    Italy in October, ahhhhh . . . la vostra vita รจ buona!
