Where I stayed
Now, even though I have seen "Three Coins in a Fountain" and" Roman Holiday" many times, I did not expect Rome to be like it is. Somehow my idea of Rome, and Ken's too, was very wrong. The many large trees (as Ken said "The pines of Rome") and open spaces and the fascinating back streets with antiquities around most every corner combined to make this interesting and comfortable. It is a lot less hectic and much cleaner than I was expecting. We didn't see the famous landmarks yet but I am loving this place. We found a lovely little restaurant, Vinando, in one of the backstreets, had a lovely dinner and took the shuttle back to the hotel. Had a drink in the bar here and finally we get to sleep.
Tomorrow we have a guided tour of Rome and Ken thinks he is going to meet the Pope. Stay tuned to see if that happens.
Here are some I tires from today.
