Rome

12 Days in Rome

 
Except for one day of pouring rain, we had wonderful weather during our 12 days in Rome. Everyone was happy about the warm temperatures after several weeks of cold weather and had a great time in the "eternal city". We did lots of activities: we spent several afternoons exploring ancient Roman sites such as the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Forum Romanum and Ostia Antica, learned about Baroque planning on a walking tour, hung out in the beautiful parks, almost got lost in the catacombs (just kidding, of course), visited St. Peter's and looked at huge numbers of paintings, mosaics and sculptures. We also enjoyed lots of pasta, pizza and gelato.
